My avatar is the view through a retroreflective mesh signal mirror aimer showing the "fireball" the aimer produces in the direction of the reflected column of light.

(That bright white spot in the avatar is not the sun itself - the sun is "offscreen" to the right. The bright spot is the aimer "fireball").

I chose this avatar image to:
  • represent my "Equipped to Survive" main interest - signal mirrors.
  • show folks who haven't used a real retroreflective mesh aimer (perhaps they have only used the look-alikes that Doug Ritter calls "Phony Glass Signal Mirrors") what they should see through the aimer.

My signature is a disclaimer to temper my usual "signal mirror enthusiast" message by pointing out that PLBs are usually much more effective than a signal mirror.

Of course, there is only so much message you can squeeze into an avatar - here's a photo with more detail and description:

Edit Reason: Clarify "fireball"
_________________________
A signal mirror should backup a radio distress signal, like a 406 MHz PLB (ACR PLB) (Ocean Signal PLB)

My avatar is a hunter symbol from some southwest rock art by native Americans.

My signature refers to the Man vs. Wild character who stays in hotels rather than the created shelters during his "survival" shows.

This is embarrassing. There has been a big misunderstanding. Fan fiction author Kiskaloo has been using images of Fumi Manjoume from Aoi Hana for his depiction of Fleda as an adult.

I did not read the small print where he says: Character graphics are Fumi Manjoume from the anime Aoi Hana.

I will be switching back to my previous avatar for the time being. I apologize for the drama.

It's OK. Just repent by watching classic Osamu Tezuka anime.
