02/18/24 11:55 PM No More Ritter Knives? by KenK

I was on Knifeworks today and was surprised to see that none of the Doug Ritter knives are available. Are they a thing of the past?

A while ago I noticed that Doug's Personal Survival Pak is no longer sold. That's a loss. After a brief search it looks like Best Glide has some reasonable kits.

If a war breaks out between China and Taiwan, how would it affect us? Is there anything we should do to prepare besides the usual?

Lost hiker ignored rescuers' phone calls, thinking they were spam

"You can get a cellphone signal on the highest mountain in Colorado, and if you get lost hiking that mountain, you should probably answer your phone even if you don't recognize the caller's number.

That's the message being spread by Lake County Search and Rescue, which tried to help a lost hiker on Mount Elbert by sending out search teams and repeatedly calling the hiker's phone. All to no avail. The hiker spent the night on the side of the mountain before finally reaching safety."

I'm browsing Temu and wondering when it is okay to go with no-name brand medical and survival gear.

12/18/23 11:34 PM Japanese canned bread by Bingley

A Japanese baker has developed a canned bread that remains soft, with a shelf life of three years. Any application for you guys?

There is a short video if you have Facebook:


If not, there is a much longer video on NHK:


I checked and it seems like there is already canned bread out there. I'm not familiar with this type of product as my emergency plan is just toughing it out without fresh bread. I suppose the Japanese inventor might have improved on the texture, or perhaps developed something that works well for the Asian market. (They tend to like softer bread, and usually they're not fans of dense bread.)
