    Firelighting failure

    In a life or death situation? Fine. Otherwise I'd have hoped that people who enjoy nature and the outdoors might have a bit more respect for the environment! I guess not!

    CASIO G-SHOCK watch strap?

    Buy from tiktox instead of ebay. Put your model number in the search box to ensure you get the right strap.

    Firelighting failure

    I have found that even with cooking/heating devices specifically designed to burn well in windy conditions, that getting them lit in windy conditions is sometimes another matter. To that end I usually carry a foldable aluminium plate wind-break and have used it many times to help get the fire...

    Has anyone modded a Hennessy Hammock?

    Are you confusing the rings in the video with something else? These are aluminium rappel rings. Needle sports are listing them as 0.045kg (Noticed that is packed weight. 30g on their own.).

    Have you seen this quick hang method? I can confirm it makes life very easy for a little extra weight.

    Measuring 3 inches (non-locking); law and practice?

    Survival Skills without camping?

    Camping in the height of summer has it's own challenges in terms of enjoyment. Heat, early sunrises/late sunsets, insects, etc, though it is probably easier to survive with less kit and experience than the darkest depths of winter.

    Worrying news article.

    Well it's just an anecdote as they both like me! I will qualify that by saying that I've regularly been in the outdoors my whole life and hadn't suffered from any tick bites until this year, when I've had 2. This is with taking all the usual precautions. I guess permethrin impregnated clothes is...
