I've queried AMK on this. Since they do sell portions of their product line into Canada, I'm assuming they understand what's required and how to deal with it.

Good and interesting suggestions. We cannot add another piece to the package, but may be possible to incorporate some sort of simplified exploding diagram for the PSP on the Bonus page, will definitely look into that possibility.

OK, thanks. The Spark-Lite is a "system" and works best with the provided tinder. Like most everything, it represents a compromise, providing one-handed operation and compactness, but a less robust spark than other larger or two-hand required "flint & steel" fire starters.

What? Did I mention some "upcoming project?" <img src="/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> I can't imagine I would do that. That would just be a tease and why would I tease? Oh, right; now I remember, from Marketing 101. That would be called a "teaser." And, your point was? <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Fact is, as you might suspect having taken the step to develop some commercial products and them being reasonably successful to date, I am looking at or working on a number of possible projects that may or may not bear fruit and given my experience bring the knives and PSP to market, may or may not come to market in our lifetime. <~> Unfortunately, it is the nature of these sorts of things that one cannot, or at least should not, reveal what's up before the "proper time," and they are all a long way from the proper time.

However, to make it interesting, if forum members want to take some guesses as to what I'm working on and when they'll come to market, I'll present a free item or whatever it is once it is available to the person who guesses most nearly correctly and comes closest to the announcement date. In case of identical guesses, first one wins. I reserve the righto be the one, only and final judge. My ball, my rules. Those who actually know what's going on, keep yer trap shut or else, <img src="/images/graemlins/ooo.gif" alt="" /> you're not eligible anyway. <img src="/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" /> Insert the usual disclaimers here... <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Obviously you're going to be working on a larger survival kit. Most likely one that you bring with in a light aircraft. It might even be designed to complement Doc Blue's mega first aid kit.

Or, some sort of survival training tape.

Actually, I wonder if you're really trolling for more ideas?

I too was thinking that you may be working on a larger kit for the car, boat, or plane. Or maybe specific kits for each? I would like to see those anyway.

Maybe an everyday carry kit, with whistle, lighter, flashlight/Microlight, knife, etc...

How about your own survival manual.. ie Wiseman, et al...

How about your own product website, selling the products that you use/reccommend. A one stop shop for the latest/greatest...

A Doug Ritter PLB?

A DR BOB Bag?

I would guess that you would want this to go to market asap(duh), but how about before the end of the year?.. before Thanksgiving <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Thats all the guesses I have now...

Andy

Hi Doug

I'd have to agree with the others the "teaser" item would be a larger PSP kit something along the lines of the Pro Survival kit which includes a light and a knife ( maybe including the mini PSK). I'd hazard a guess that a demo mock-up model will be ready to display at the SHOT 2005 show.

Just a guess.

The current list of "ideas" is over two pages long, with an even dozen in various stages of serious consideration or active development for the relatively near term. If somebody comes up with an idea we haven't thought of, great, but that thought hadn't crossed my mind when I made this proposition.

No dates, no eligibility for the prize.

Good thing I don't drink my OJ at the keyboard or it would be a mess. Thanks for the laugh this morning, I needed that...
