I've got a USGI large Alice pack (new pads), a 3-day pack, a USGI gore-tex bivy (repaired, leaks around the stitching if submerged in a bathtub).

Anyone have interest?

I'll be going through 5 bins of emergency/survival/camping gear in my garage next week, but the first thing that comes to mind is a set of new never worn winter flyers coveralls in 42R. This is to be worn as an out garment. Can post pics if anyone's willing to trade. PM me if anyone wants them. Now that winter's here, they may make a nice addition to someone's winter gear.

Hmmm, I wonder if that would fit me? What sort of knives/camping gear are you looking for?

Naw, you're too skinny Blast. wink

I, on the other hand am not.

So.....just what sort of knives/camping gear ARE you looking for TMK?



Perhaps a trip out to your local ski shop to try out one of their parkas would be a good idea, It's a really big & bulky coat.

Well lets see, I'm in the market for a camp stove ( Jetboil or Coleman dual-fuel) as for knives; I am looking for fixed blades. A good flashlight or a pair of polarized aviators would not be shunned.I'm open to what i trade for it, just let me know what ya got.

P.S. I also have a Benchmade Skirmish that i'm willing to trade as well.

Hey Y'all,
I have a Child's ARC'TERYX Climbing harness it would fit a child with a 7-8 to 10-12 size waist. If any of you have kids that want to rock climb or rappell this is perfect. It is an older model but still in great condition. I also have a 1.5 litre Camelbak(camelbak brand) Hydrobak. It is in pristine conditon I used it for 1 week in the back country. The only way you would know it was used is if you are reading this. It has a closeable big bite valve meaning it wont leak if you turn a switch. I also purchased a bite valve cover for it which I will throw in. PM me for pics and addresses. I am interested in a larger camelbak 2+ litres, preferably military, I don't care what color as long as it is not bright yellow red or green also a larger harness that would fit a 29-30 inch waist. any survival or military surplus gear. Good sunglasses and as always any Knife.

OK, so here's the photos I promised. All this stuff is surplus to me, and I'm willing to make trades:

First, we have fly fishing rods:



Closeup



One of these is promised to Nighthiker, if he wants it.

Next up, we have an external frame pack:



This is old, but in good condition. It was purchased by my dad in the 1970s, and has been in storage for most of the last 20 years!


I understand some people are interested in knives?



On the left we have a Glock Field Knife. On the Right, a Winchester Hunting Knife (from Walmart, made in China).

Next Up:



On the left, an UnderWater Kinetics Blue Tang dive knife. Blade is 316SS, made in the USA. It comes apart so that the entire thing can be cleaned and lubed to prevent corrosion. In very good shape. On the right is a "Survival Knife" with a hollow handle which contains a small survival kit, and a compas on the pommel. The small plastic pouch on the sheath which holds a sharpening stone is kind of falling apart, but the blade is in good shape. Blade says 420 Stainless, Taiwan.

Below is a photo of the dive knife taken apart for cleaning, and the other knife opened to display the small survival kit:



Finally, the MREs that got this whole thing started:



So, LETS MAKE A DEAL. . . \
