I'll second the digging but I've found a few other very handy uses for the bayonet, as well.

Not paste- more like elmer's glue.

Still, daylily flowers are good. Particularly if you get them as buds, and steam them.

Yeah, but in the civilian world some of that is frowned upon...

"... bending the barrel..."

That is why you need the H-Bar version. 'Course the plastic rifle now weighs as much as the M-1 Garand...

No direct knowledge of this, but I saw an ad a while back for a fighting knife that indicated that it was designed for use in using the 'hot coffee, no burned fingers technique'. This maneuver appeared to involve sticking the blade of this sharpened prybar into a hot place-wood fire, exhaust pipe, lava vent, whatever-heating the blade, and then quenching the blade in your coffee cup, thereby heating the coffee. Nasty thing to do to tempered steel, but the item did not appear to be good for much else. Ever use your bayonet so?
Blast, thanks for letting the rest of us benefit from your insomnia. Explains the breath-taking performance needed to obtain the PhD, but then, I would be afraid to go to sleep in Troy, anyway.

dweste,

Purslane is listed. Good tip on the Miner's Lettuce. I looked it up and around here it's know as dollar weed. It's running rampant in my neighbor's yards, so I'll get some good pictures of it. I've heard of yerna buena but I haven't found any around here.

I also added some of your suggested tools to my list. I can't believe I forgot a notebook and a ruler/tape measure.

Nursemike,

You know Troy?! You poor fellow! I spent seven years living right on 9th St. when it had the highest murder rate in the Capital District.

Nope. I like my coffee boiling hot, I doubt that a stubby little blade like an M-7 would get it that hot. I'm gonna need a bigger blade...

While you attended the rigorous, demanding and world-renowned grad progam at RPI, I attended the Russell Sage College Evening Division grad program, which is none of those things, but does exist in Troy. Yes, I know it's a non-coed women's college. I was in drag. I don't like to think about it.
