I had the opportunity eat at the French mess when the French military hosted us at their base in Djibouti. Regardless, the French mess was like a French restaurant; best dinner I had the entire time I was deployed to the Indian Ocean AO. This w

Our friends in France are more concerned with what you cook when the power goes out. After all, that's not a reason to eat well! Here are some recipes from our Friends, using simple canned tuna. note, if not comfortable with French accent, use

There are lots of different manufacturers of that butane stove design. We use one made by GasOne (same basic design but stainless steel body) for power outages here and no issues. That said, itís an open flame burner, so set it up and use it with

I've got one of the old, standard, Coleman two burner propane stoves. Maybe a 1/2 dozen of those green propane cartridges, and then an adapter hose so I could hook up the two 20lb propane bottles from our propane grill (which we rarely use anymore,

And there's an LD02 v2.0 now, with UV mode and a really nice stainless steel tip and tail. Argh!

I see this has a flood-to-spot option. Much better than the LD02 flood (I preferred the LD01). Wonder if it's compatible with the clips from the previous versions? Could be great for hands-free use. Darn you anyway, hikermor, now I need to go shopp

On the other hand,there were media reports of requests for rescue from people who stayed behind in low lying areas that were immediately flooded. It is a matter of probabilities and there is no way, yet, to be extremely precise about when and where

I have two Pocket Rockets, and they are the greatest - lightweight and hot! I actually prefer the original model, which I have used for about eighteen years, to the newer version. both get the tea brewing in splendid fashion...

Looks like the winds have mostly subsided to around a max of 80 mph - which can still cause damage. Lots of social media vocalizing that the hurricane did live up to the big hype and are questioning the call to evac as many areas received very littl

An update on this light after a couple of month's usage. It has a useful feature i did not recognize immediately. In order to turn on the light, it is necessary to press and hold the switch for about a second a mere tap will not turn on the light.

In hurricanes, most fatalities occur from the flooding and storm surge, not from damage due to high winds. After all, cat 2 is a mere 100 mph, something I have never experienced. I know it is hard to keep my footing in a 55mph "breeze."
