Re: I am looking for an ALICE ammo pouch tin

Seems like a lot of folk don't know about the Trangia mess kits. Always show British or French kits, which are too big for mag pouch. The Trangia kits are what the Japanese use for rice cooking, lots of youtube vids. I would think their small size mess kit would fit in pouch, but I'm too lazy to dou...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

My county so far:

COVID-19 Testing Report

Tested: 89
Positive: 9
Pending: 27
Deaths: 1


My chest hurts as I breathe sometimes, think I'm low on potassium. Helps if I do deep breaths and use spirometer every day.

Re: Several must read SCi-fi based Apocalyptic novels

As a child of the 80's I devoured the cheesy nuke war series that came out from Pinnacle, Zebra, Gold Eagle, etc: I really liked the art work that they had for the book covers. Wish I had just the cover for some. Funny that Deathlands always had a sex scene in the first books, then not any sex in l...

Re: Several must read SCi-fi based Apocalyptic novels

Due to eye changes from cataracts, from near sighted to far sighted, I like to listen to audio books on youtube. There's several zombie and end of world novels. I plug my headphones into the ipad at night and let someone read me a story as I fall asleep.

Re: I am looking for an ALICE ammo pouch tin

M4040 uses a mini loaf pan to fit inside M16 mag pouch. I have yet to find one, all I can find are the aluminum ones. I do have one that I will have to saw off the edges to fit inside, just too lazy to do it. You know that they did a survival kit in mag pouch contest years ago? It was funny seeing a...

Re: Ran for my life out of the woods.

Heck, I was almost beaned by broken tree limb while taking out the trash one winter, really heavy snow and ice.
Really big crack of sound, didn't know which way to run.

He’s talking about German kits, not Swedish.
Only the Swedish kit comes with stand and alcohol stove.
Also the Swedish kit doesn’t have an inside cup.

Why do you call it a Walmart stove?
It's made by UST and you bought it from Walmart.
