Sweedish Firesteel
Orange bag with survival/emergency kit
Mini Prybar
Emergency Cash
Spare 1xAAA LED flashlight (Fenix LD01 Clone )

Life looks good Ferfal, you and Mini Me enjoy that sweet sunshine while you can. Nice kit too.

One piece of kit I would add - one of those plug in water coil heaters. Clamps to edge of cup or pot, heats your liquid to pretty warm, easy way to heat items in your hotel room without a stove or cooktop.

FerFAL said...

Thanks guyd.
Yes, those heaters are nice. I have a good one and two cheaper "spares". I should add one to the bag.

Nice Sippy Cup you have there?

FerFAL said...

Yes, that's for the baby. He didn't want to sit there with daddy for the picture. :-)

hey, just so you know, Smoky Mountain Knife Works has a sale going on with CS knives, bought the 29C X large Clip blade for $40, not bad at all.

Nice! Hope you're enjoying yourself.

Uruguay always intrigued me as an alternative. How badly do they hate Yanks?

My bare minimum kit would be a 1 quart stainless steel water bottle or hard plastic bottle in a tin can, chlorine dioxide water purification tablets, Blast match ferocium rod, 1 trioxane fuel tab or wet fire tab, small pill bottle or container with cotton balls smeared with petroleum jelly, 4 to 7" knife, extra large bandana, long nose pliers, 25' 550 cord, tube of Neosporin, (1) 55 gallon contractors trash bag, emergency mylar blanket, button compass, toilet paper, and gorilla tape wrapped around a Bic lighter or led flashlight. All this fits into a fanny or butt pack and there are duplicate sets. a

Glad that you and your family enjoyed some time at the beach.

Looks like a good kit for where you are traveling. I hope you and La Familia enjoyed the vacation.

Kind of surprised to see you carry an IMCO lighter. I've had one on me since about 1968 but I'm kind of of old fashioned about some things. I figured you you more for the high tech, piezoelectric, stormproof butane lighters. Is it because of availablity of butane versus lighter fluid in Argentina?

FerFAL said...

Not really, lighter fluid is easy to find, and so is butane. I just find the IMCO to be the most rugged liquid fuel lighter, even more so than zippos, and they last twice as much when full so when I'm traveling I'll usually take an IMCO with me.
