11/30/20 08:02 PM "survival kit" is a misnomer... by TeacherRO

A survival kit heavily depends on what is is to be used for - and who is using it.
A bag packed for a day trip to your local county fair is vastly different from one packed for a week in the Canadian wilderness.
And the weather.
And your level of fitness and skill
And your age ad heath conditions
And your budget...

So there is no one good survival kit. And many options.

11/30/20 02:07 PM GPS maps?? by hikermor

This incident was featured on TV news this morning.

Personally, as a died in the wool, trad, retro geezer I have a fondness for paper maps. They are permanent, compared to screen displays.

The very best situation - you will have both updated, currant paper maps and an accurate GPS unit to tell you where you are....

For all SHTF fans out there, here is a way to think about, and presumably plan for, future rare and improbable disasters. The article focuses on earthquakes, a subject of particular interest to those of us in EQ prone areas, but the process can be applied to other SHTF events as well (asteroid strikes, anyone?)

Thee findings in this article have interesting implications for those of us exposed to or working in, hot environments.

Just drinking more water is not the solution....

11/10/20 02:20 PM Cordless Tool power bank? by hikermor

Like many of us, I have been drifting to cordless tools recently. I have stuck to one brand, so that the batteries are interchangeable.

I am beginning to look on my accumulating batteries as a useful power sources to power other small appliances - lights and cell phones, primarily.

Is there some sort of gadget that I could fasten to a cordless battery so that i could transfer juice from the battery to another appliance? I would think there would be a definite market for such an item, although it would probably have to be specific for each different brand of cordless...

Thoughts, anyone??
