Re: Re: 'It's still better than golf!' Mount Rainier survivor describes 50 hours alone
I would assume he burned the socks, scarf, and money as tinder to get a wood fire going. He was in snow after all, and without proper tinder or knowledge of how to acquire some, the items he burned...

Re: under armour heat gear
Another vote vote for under armor compression shorts. These are my favorite to wear under my judo gi. However, I like the under armor boxer briefs for hiking. The legs are pretty snug on the boxer ...

Re: Re: Paint your pot black and add fins. It works!
I like that pot idea in the video! I wonder how much weight it adds though, and how it compares to say a caldera cone. P.S. If anyone knows how to embed images from the internet on this forum, I...
