If we are talking about Antarctica, there is no need to resort to fantasy. Just look at the expeditions of Robert Scott and Ernest Shackelton for real life examples, one successful and the other not so much... "Scott for scientific method, A

What if you were stranded in Antartica and your only companion was a robot rather than on a deserted island with a volleyball for a companion? Could you survive? If you are a climatologist who knows how to MacGuiver an endothermic blaster, then yes.

I watched some survivalists bury their caches and they proudly filmed it for YouTube. One guy said he was going to be smart and not reveal even the general location of where he buried it. He took great pains in concealing and covering his tracks. B

The burned wreck of the Conception has been raised, and is now at the naval base in Port Hueneme. This is what some news sources are saying. The investigation is still a multi-agency probe. Many things remain unexplained. For example, the NTSB has

I carried the first Leatherman, the PSK, for many years,starting in 1985, Came in very handy on many occasions, some of which were critical. A PSK with a locking blade and the ability to utilize a Bit kit would be a very fine multitool indeed.

Thanks Montanero These knives are fine, actually too fine for me. I like to lean on the budget side.

If you do not pay with money you pay with your data. Using the card leaves a trace for marketing studies with actual consumer data. The card company may compensate the clinic.

I agree with you right there. Many times I have thought why we don't just grow some nice smelling plants around us and reduce the use of perfumes. And gardening is a great hobby too.

You might consider keeping a small prybar (6-8 inch length or so) handy. I don't always have one handy, but they are great tools when prying is required and they are small enough to keep handy.

Make sure your multi tool has a saw. I like the metal saw/file on the SAK Ranger; I have used it a good bit. A partial serration on the fixed blade makes cutting through rope and straps easier.
