Tarp Shelter with a Carbon Fiber Chimney

There were lots of discussions on some of the forums about having a stove in a tent, how safe it was and how portable it was. I rarely use a tent and I had a hanging grill that I wanted to use in an inclosed tarp during cold or wet weather. I had tossed around several designs but came up blank until I found out about Flexible Carbon Fiber blankets. Carbon Fiber blanket was .23. Stainless steel strapping was .50. It was very very hard to assemble this, I needed six hands. After this initial test I can tell this is going to be fantastic for in shelter cold weather trips.

Neck Knife Survival Kit

Another survival kit option. This one is slightly less comprehensive than the altoid’s tin, but still offers: fire, water, signalling, navigation, and some cordage for shelter building. It should be able to help substantially in your fight for survival if you were to become lost or stranded in the outdoors. The kit is based on the Condor Fidelis neck knife.

Forest Rain Shelter Revisited

A downed tree discovered creekside during a rainy day bushwhack in April 2011 provided the materials for making the rain shelter. I will return to rebuild it one day soon. The site creekside is too pleasant to abandon.

BEST Mini Survival Kit – Part 2

Part 2 of 2: I took a hard look at what people really want during an emergency situation, and came up with the “BEST” (Best Emotional Survival Tin) emergency kit that also addresses ones pyschological needs. You’ll see the standard stuff, but also a few new items you may not have thought of. If stuck in the wilderness or in a bathtub after an earthquake, this is what I would want to have on my person.
