    BioLite FirePit

    So BioLite have a kickstarter for a FirePit/BBQ type deal with an electrical generator. I was sceptical of the little camp stove thing, but a recent NSFW review on YouTube might have eased my scepticism. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/biolite/biolite-firepit-see-fire-not-smoke Just a...

    Battery powered microwave oven...

    Just had an idea of using Jus Rol premade pastry in a dutch type oven. Freshly baked croissants, pan au chocolat, and cinnamon swirls for little effort sounds like a plan. So wondering if anyone has tried it? Someone surely must have?

    Agawa Canyon Folding 21" saw

    Just came across these browsing around, not seem them before. http://agawacanyoninc.com/ But they look pretty good. Like how everything stays connected in normal use. Only issue I can see possibly is they use a snap ring to hold the blade in.

    National Film Board of Canada videos

Only watched Survival in the Bush so far, http://www.nfb.ca/film/survival_in_the_bush Not sure what to make of it, bit skeptical, as there's no real indication of time, the making of a canoe feels like "Here's one we made...
