Re: Re: Dear Vision
I can tell you, with some certainty, that the footwear choice least likely to result in twisting an ankle are minimalist shoes or straight barefoot. Preconception is very undervalued. I suspect...

Re: Plastic bottle
Micheal, I have not done it but I have seen the method used many times on youtube or survival shows. As long as it has water in it, it will not melt. The water bottle will stretch and lose it's...
