What is a good, basic compass to throw in a survival kit? I want something affordable but more than a button compass I can count on in a survival situation.

03/10/23 07:21 AM Best C and D batteries for car flashlights by Acropolis50

We keep 4 cell , C and/ or D battery Mag-Lite flashlights, upgraded with LED build modules ,in out family cars as utility an emergency , nearly indestructible, flashlights. They are kept in the passenger cabin. But they r still subject to both high heat in summer and freezing cold in winter. So my question is, what in ur opinions , are the best batteries to use to survive the temperature swings, not burst their cases from corrosive battery failure and provide long life power to the LED bulb. Modules?

03/03/23 11:56 PM How do you pack clothing layers? by Eugene

Say your going on a trip, hiking/backpacking/or just packing to be prepared, how do you typically pack your clothing?

I see some will pack all the different types in one package/stuff sack/whatever so you have all your underclothing together, outer pants/shirt in one, etc

Others pack a bundle of one set of under/inner clothing and one set of outer clothing in each pack/sack for each planned day. So a two day trip will have two stuff sacks, one for each day.

As I start to prepare to swap summer gear and winter gear soon I wonder if one method might be a little more efficient than another?

Anyone replying to a message over a normal cellular or Wi-Fi connection can do so for free.
