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.

SOG SEAL Pup vs Cold Steel SRK

Which is the best survival knife? Watch this video and find out. I’ve had this SOG SEAL Pup for over a year now and I’ve put it through some hard use. Even when I bought it brand new though it was never sharp enough. My Pup isn’t the Elite, it’s the M37 aus-6 stainless version. The kydex sheath is excellent, but the blade was terrible. Then I traded a wool blanket for this Cold Steel SRK carbon version. I learned what a medium sized knife should deliver in terms of capabilities and edge retention. It’s way easier to sharpen and it holds an edge like a knife ought to. The drawback with carbon is that it will rust, or stain, especially with a leather sheath. Even with an inferior leather sheath the SRK carbon won the challenge. The edge retention is superior and the straight edge is preferred for camping related tasks like processing wood, making traps and cleaning game. The aus-8 version of the SRK looks promising, and I’ll be putting one head-to-head, a rematch of sorts, against the newer version of the SOG, the SEAL Pup Elite. SAR (Search and Rescue) Operations personnel require specialized tools to perform their tasks. The gear they use takes the most abuse, and none more than their knife. That’s why the Cold Steel SRK (Survival Rescue Knife) is standard issue to Navy Seals-it can take the punishment. The blade is AUS-8A stainless steel finished in a flat black teflon coating. The clip point is “prybar” strong and fine enough for delicate work. There’s plenty of belly
