Re: Coleman Score

Yea I do like propane, but around here its a lost cause during the winter, to hard to keep bottles unfrozen. Unless its a very large container, so I use white gas for emergency heating and Kerosene for indoor emergency heating.The middle of winter is like a propane circus at the thrift stores, every...

Re: alternate oils with low flash point for kerosene lanterns?

Water is a big problem with wicks, especially with bulk red kerosene. The heaters are stupid easy to take apart and clean with alcohol, water will ruin a wick fast. Every four or five tanks I do a tear down to be safe and to save my wick. I've run twenty five tanks this winter and my wick looks bran...

Re: alternate oils with low flash point for kerosene lanterns?

Agreed, diesel sucks bad.....you can run #1 stove oil alright in wicked appliances if you add a couple drops of denatured alcahol..hick...hick...to a gallon it will burn clean but is slightly harder on your wicks. I also use this for my Whisperlight International multi fuel, runs fine.

You can buy low odor mineral spirits, great stuff, run it in my indoor lamps and heaters. Less carbon build up and absolutely no smell. I have run common low odor paint thinner but it is a bit more smelly but actually less than k-1 kerosene. The wicks are very forgiving, it's the pressurized stoves ...

Re: Saber-Toothed Crotch Crickets (LICE)

I love all the old time remedies. My grandfather would make us swallow Vicks Mentholatum when we were sick as kids. I asked a Dr. as a adult and he said it probably caused a lot of brain damage. But the tick in my eye is from drinking I swear.

According to the CDC: And I paraphrase: Scabies is a very contagious skin condition that is caused by a mite. The mite cannot live more than three days without a human host, but it can survive up to a month when living on a human. The mite also lays eggs in human skin, which hatch and grow into adul...

Co-Flex also has a complete bandage called Co-Flex AFD and UNIFMED-AFD, they are quite a nice bandage IMHO. I found them easier to self administer than most of the other bandages. Oh, and they come in tacti-cool colors.... OK black and Brown. The regular AFD only has one wound pad and the UNIFMED ha...
