    into the wild

    I stumbled onto this film and became very intrigued by the story. I guess it is only fascinating because it is a bit of a mystery. but my instinct tells my the reality of the story is much more mundane and much of the romance is just in the imagination of the writer. or am I just a cynic

    Czech Army sleeping bag/bedroll, myths and legends

    I don't want to hijack the thread but to answer your question I was surprised that you say an infantry soldier does not carry much. My experience was of quite heavy loads with body armour, radios, radio batteries, ammo, metal detection equipment, other electronic equipment, water and it all...
