I take it you would probably not feel comfortable in environments which fit me like a glove, and vice versa.

Remove that and I either need to adopt a new identity or I would be miserable. "Small town girl" isn't who I am, never will be.

Upgraded my sewage disposal equipment for the camper.

Purchased more emergency rations for the BoB's and GHB's.

Finished putting 4 survival themed geocaches together. We will deploy 1 during each of the next 4 camping trips that we make with the camper.

got a new LED flasher for my PFD.very bright flashes every second.
only problem so far is where to attach it to my new PFD.
i remember seeing those sew on patches with the loops on them
for hiking packs so i'll look for one of those.

My vest has a Firefly PRO SOLAS attached. It works fine in testing; fortunately, I've never used it for real.
