Either they were too cheap and broke, or you didn't think about what you might be using them for. I'm sure many a old Marine would say all they ever needed was their tru...

Oh, the car's trunk is loaded with lots of goodies. Maps, Tent, Sleep Bag, case of bottled water and other bulky/heavy items. A friend of mine saw it and commented that I could probably survive a nuclear holocaust out of it. (In retrospect, we agreed I was missing a gas mask.) So, I'm sure I could f...
