Where do you want to go on ETS?

Yesterday at 03:57 AM PSK Reviews! by Burncycle

I was a boy scout and I always liked the outdoors, but what really got me re-interested in the whole topic years back was reading Doug's survival kit reviews on the site. It inspired me to make my own, I went through a ton of iterations, and ultimately learned a lot which I suspect was more the point than realistically ever actually needing it.

I know he doesn't have a lot of time to update the site, but there are so many commercial kits that have come out over the last couple years, if any of you have experience buying any of these commercial kits (or even your own) I'd love to see your thoughts on it in a similar fashion.

Even if just unofficial, a compiled place to report the pros and cons of these new kits might spark some interest in some young kids mind and lead him or her on a path of learning and discovery!

Yeah they're all the rage. But finding one to fit my wrist, or the little woman's slender wrist just didn't seem worth the effort.
Until now.
I've found a buckle which not only has a whistle, but a small ferro rod and scraper built in.
Does anyone know anything about braiding these bracelets? Such as a website called braiding for dummies with big clumsy hands? And can additional supplies be concealed in the braiding?
Thanks.

In a survival situation it was always a general principle that the coastline was always the place to find food.

Is there anything in this video suggesting extinction level events of wildlife and sea birds on large areas of the Pacific coastline. The video presentation suggests that the vast majority of all species are extinct due to a massive die off in the Pacific Ocean.

I was spooked a few weeks ago after observing thousands of migratory sea birds circling over my house in North East Scotland.
