    I'm looking for constructive criticism and opinions on what I have for a set up. Basically I live in a small town in pretty much the middle of nowhere and if something happened where I had to leave it would be pretty easy to disappear in the woods. The woods around me have essentially an endless...

    Amongst my reading in survival kits and other things. I've seen Chicken, or Beef Bouillon cubes in some kits. I know their for cooking never used them personally. Was wondering why some people put them in kits especially the military.

    An interesting concept or design and after looking at it and thinking on it, this would actually be a quite useable kit or the box used for the kit. Anyone here seen this and what's your take, I think the idea is ideal especially being able to recharge a AA battery and also having a small light...
