I use the uniball power tank. Just in case I have to write in space.

I am not sure how rugged a pen has to be to shank someone.

Not to mention that the Power Tank writes a lot more smoothly than the Fisher Space Pen. The Power Tank is my current EDC pen.

Re: Boots for really long walks

Carry moleskin and apply it at the first sign of a hot spot. It will stop a blister from forming and deaden the pain.

Re: Where to get a flashlight repaired?

There are a lot of modders in r/flashlight and they're a pretty friendly bunch. They can probably help you out or point you in the right direction.

Re: Prepped to spend the night at airport?

I don't fly much anymore. When I do, I include spare socks, undies, bra, and basic hygiene supplies in my carry-on. Defense Soap peppermint wipes are great for freshening up when a shower is not available, so next time I fly I'll toss some in a ziploc and bring them as well. I also bring a few Clif ...

Unless you are immunocompromised or a fetus, all T. gondii will do is give you flu symptoms. Stop trying to spread panic.

Re: Eye Glasses & recomendations

I've worn glasses since I was a teenager. Polycarbonate lenses and a retention strap have always been good enough for me. I use Cocoons over-Rx sunglasses, which are also nearly indestructible.

About that time, said staffer comes head first out the window swinging a scimitar of the crappy chrome variety of blade you find for $5 at the low-rent government surplus stores.

Take a look at the Thrunite TH20. I replaced my Black Diamond Storm with one of these. It will run on either a 14500 Li-ion or a single AA.

Re: Anybody else have an AMC Eagle?

I had an AMC Eagle. I bought it for $50 in the mid-90s. It needed a new muffler right away. About a year later I had to replace the heater core and the radiator. Kept it for another year or two and then one night it spat all its transmission fluid onto the road and never moved under its own power ag...

Re: Buying emergency water from Amazon

If you have municipal tap water, you can store it in clean glass or plastic containers for up to six months. Clean 2-liter pop bottles with new lids are pretty good containers.

His vehicle and most of his police gear are also anachronisms. I try not to let it get in the way of the show. I'm not good at identifying model years just by looking at vehicles, but I know that there were Chevy Blazers that looked pretty much like Hopper's in 1982-1984. What about the rest of his...

Re: Traps

It wouldn't even have to be a terribly complicated trap. Dig a big pit. Set up your boom box. Go check every few days and bring a few gallons of diesel to set them on fire, which will eventually kill them and keep them from piling up so much that new ones can climb out.

Re: Stranger Things 1 and 2

I love both seasons. Two things bother me. 1. Barb got a raw deal. I will avoid posting spoilers, but I'm happy to discuss it via PM. 2. Chief Hopper's knife is an anachronism. There were no half-serrated folders with thumb studs in the early 1980s. He should have a Buck 110 or maybe a SAK or Barlow.
