Yes, but with the Moon in Aquarius and the Sun Opposing Mars, not to mention Venus waning Jupiter, Is now the right time to be constructing a shelter like this anyway? <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

ref: wine bottle - after tiring yourself out searching for a corkscrew, you could always push the cork into the bottle..... and if you are too sophisticated to leave the cork in then get some string of a reasonable diameter, tie a knot in the end, push it into the bottle, get the string under the cork and when you pull the string make sure the knot is behind the cork. Pull the string hard til the cork is pulled out of the bottle. If you are not sure how this is done, please feel free to bring any unopened bottles to my house and i shall demonstrate how it is done. Then you can practice until you have mastered this technique OR until we cannot focus on the bottles due to the imbibing of the contents.
Garlic press??? In the absence of this implement use a homemade pestle & mortar from the surrounding rocks & stones in the mentioned desert (unless you happen to be in a rock free desert, in which case just flatten the garlic bulbs with the flat of your trusty blade)
If anyone else has any problems, please feel free to ask. Now that I watch daytime TV, I can probably find a fix for just about anything............ Oh god someone help me...where's the off button, Good Morning is just starting.....goodbye cruel world

I have carried a SAK with a corkscrew for years.

While the best use is to get the cork out of a wine bottle, it is also handy for getting knots out of paracord, small rope or fishing line.

I have a Gerber, a Buck and an older Leatherman PST.

I still like the old Leatherman PST better than any of the "improved" versions.

I think the point for Leatherman, Gerber, et al is to keep coming out with new models so folks like us will keep buying "upgrades".

I own an old Wave and I like it, but, there is something I miss a lot and is an awl. Instead of so many flat screwdrivers, they could have one less and incorporate an awl.

That's my only beef with the Wave and Charge; it needs an awl! <img src="/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

Now see, you're missing the Leatherman's point _again_. Time is just a construct, a figment if you will. Now? Ooops. Now passed. See?

A Leatherman isn't just a survival tool.

I don't drink wine often either, but I wanted a multitool with a corkscrew because if I ever did go camping with wine-drinking people, it'd kill me to take a multitool and a corkscrew as well. It'd be like taking a multitool and a set of screwdrivers.

By the way, the Juice range are a bit flimsy. I have the Xe6 and the Cs4; I found the former a bit too big for casual carry. The Cs4 has a good selection of tools and a better size and weight, but it definitely feels like a compromise compared to real tools (or even a bigger multitool such as the Swiss Tool).

Thats why there is a Leatherman on my belt, but a Victorinox in my back of tricks.
