  Nitecore I2 & I4
Posted by: David - 11-08-2015, 09:24 PM - Forum: Lighting - Replies (2)

Nitecore I2 and I4 battery chargers.  These are for lithium ion batteries and will charge up to 26650 sized batteries.  I have the I2 and it's been fantastic.  I just ordered (and already received) the I4 to have as backup.  These are smart chargers so they know the type of battery that's being charged and it doesn't overcharge.

Amazon

This is the type I ordered and received just today.  The I2 has two charging stations.

  Handy duct tape holder
Posted by: mac66 - 11-07-2015, 02:50 PM - Forum: DIY - No Replies

I saw this online a few years ago and thought it was a great idea.  I've since made dozens of these things and attach them to all my luggage, GHB, BOB, key rings etc. It is so handy to have duct tape at one's finger tips, I used them dozens of times.

That link is to my website. I collect Remington Nylon 66 .22 rifles and started http://www.nylonrifles.com 10+ years ago to compile "everything you ever wanted to know Remington nylon rifles". It is the biggest source of info on the web on these rifles. There are how to assembly/disassemble these rifles as well as lots of historical info and photos. You can only write so much on the nylon rifles so I added other content as well. There is also a forum and lots of other DIY stuff as well. I don't do much with it anymore but there is lots of info there and I didn't feel like rewriting it over here. Feel free to browse around. I will be posting links to the other DIY stuff in other threads.

  Sleep
Posted by: JRSC - 11-06-2015, 06:32 PM - Forum: First Aid - No Replies

We pretty much go by the 10 C's of survivability. But the way I see it, without good rest survival, camping, heck everyday life is pretty rough. 

Any good sleep ideas you may have feel free to share. With winter coming up a warm sleep is better than a hot cup of coffee. Earlier this year it got down in the single digits here in SC. I had the great opportunity to sleep out in the field in it. I believe the temperature was a whopping 5 Fahrenheit. With the wind chill it was worse than that. I put 2 ponchos together. I had a air mattress and built an A-frame tent around it. I had 2 wool blankets. I wrapped up in one, crawled in my sleeping bag and wrapped the other around me. I lit a can of Sterno and sat it in a safe place in the tent. I stayed impressively warm.

There are tons of winter sleeping arrangements. Summer, like dog day summer, is kind of tough. With every bug and creepy crawly along with the Souths national bird, the mosquito, sleeping is tough. My methods are to try to lower my core temperature first. The coldest water I can find, I stick my arms in there and also dab myself down. Once cooled off I use my hammock. Put up my mosquito net. And tie it off under the hammock so I'm sealed off from the outside the best I can. Paying attention to wind direction and staying in it is a big help.

Here's a good resource on getting some good shut eye:

  Emergency food ration bars
Posted by: David - 11-03-2015, 01:14 AM - Forum: Food - Replies (16)

I dropped by Walmart today and saw UST Emergency Food Ration Bars in the camping isle for a tad under $5.  2400 calories (6 bars of 400 calories each).  Apple cinnamon flavor.  I bought a couple of packages to toss one in each vehicle as some quick go-food if needed. 

Anyone ever try these before?  Curious if it's tasty or cardboard.  But then if you're hungry it's better than eating bugs. 

5 year shelf life though I don't know if being in a vehicle affects that or not.  Looking around the net they seem to be designed for life boat containers which can get hot so probably not an issue.  Has the manufacture date and expiration date labeled on the back to make it easy.
