Re: Aardvarks - I screwed up on this one

I lost all of my aardvarks in a freak boating accident. The poor bastards tried to swim, but to no avail.

Re: Homebrewers...

Apfelwein FTW!!! I'm addicted to the stuff. I even turned 2 friends into brewers / wine makers after they tasted apfelwein.

Once I move to a house with a little more land, I definitely plan on planting some apple trees.

Re: Oddest thing in your gear and why

I keep a hand full of large rubber bands and a spool of 28 guage steel wire in my BOB. I find both much more useful than the zip-ties I see in a lot of other people's kits. The rubber bands make guying out tents / tarps a breeze, and do many other odd tasks well. The wire is good for snares and bind...

Re: If there was no BATFE....

The 20MM Vulcan from an A-10 Warthog mounted onto a school bus. Huh? A-10's have never been fitted with a 20mm as standard equipment. The plane was built around the GAU-8. If you meant the GAU-8 30mm, I hope you mount that facing to the rear of your bus,... unless you're really good driving a schoo...

Re: Wood Fuel Harvesting Tools for BOB

The pocket chainsaw works great and can be kept in your pocket. I also have a Gerber saw for different ty...

Re: snares

Squirrels are easy. Just use 28 guage wire with a fiugure-8 loop. String several snares along a branch or stick and lean the stick against a tree. Smell doesnt matter as far as I've noticed.

Re: Should I buy this for my kit? Tomahawk !!

I have a SOG Fusion 'hawk. I bought it just b/c it looked cool, but ended up taking it backpacking a couple weeks ago. Temps were in the low teens so we had to cut a lot of wood. The consensus of my friends and I was that it supprisingly worked just as good, or better than my buddies Gerber hatchet....

Re: Survivorman Vs - Man vs Wild

I'd be willing to wager that Les bullshits just as much as Bear, but in a more subtle way. Do you guys really think he caught a snapping turle in the "trap" he made out of a few twigs stuck in the mud and some frog guts? Go try to make that trap and report back on what you catch. :lol: Les fakes med...

Re: What Camo do YOU wear?

Wear whatever. If you're seriously gearing up for the ZPAW, then clothing doesn't matter except to fend from other folks (which, really, are probably the LEAST of your worries). Wear whatever you've gotta. If you honestly think sporting those sweet-ass new cammie jammies is going to help you out, j...

Re: BOB organization tips thread

I actually don't like the whole compression sack thing for a lot of stuff. The more things that have a firm shape, the less you can pack in your ruck. I like tossing my unrolled sleeping bag into my ruck, then some things that have 'shapes'. Then I'll pack some loose clothes on top of that. Then mor...

Re: Survivorman Vs - Man vs Wild

I like both shows, but I find Bear much more entertaining than Les. I don't watch either show trying to learn practical survival skills, though. I watch TV to be entertained. I do things I want to learn.
