OK, so it's more a marker than a pen. Slightly different mental images. <br><br>The real challange- can you get a fire going and survive for 24 hours with just that pen, the clothes on your back, and (if you carry one) the knife you have every day? Do it in good weather first. If you can't do it, then scrap or revise the kit. If you can't do it in bad weather, than it's really time to think about moving up to a tin, and maybe even a small belt pack.<br><br>Microminimalists drive me crazy, becuase so few of them ever both to find out if what they have (which MUST be better becuase it's little) is even close to be the equal of the gear and people they are sniping at. To many people get the gear, and never really learn how to use it. And learning if you can really use it happens at night, without light (unless you are carryingone), in the rain, with a good wind, not in your garage. Your nice, warm, concrete pad with it's roof and four walls and convenient lights is where you learn how, but not how you test yourself.
