  3. My Current PSK

    LOL actually ther Coffee filters are for filtering water. Not making coffee, I carry coffee singles for that, and they burn well after being used.
  4. A New Firekit Knife

    Nice Brian and Bryan
  5. My Current PSK

    Holy Leaves Batman, I forgot the TP! LOL. Your right thou, I have some in my Bob, diaper wipes in a travel pack, but none in my kit! Would have been really crappy to need it and not have it, thanks for the suggestion. Never tried to burn one of my filters. I do have coffee singles in the food kit, the filters are strictly for the water purification, thou I boil the water too.
  6. My Current PSK

    Hi Kim, Thanks! It has been a long road getting it to the point it is today. Well when I started on my BOB/PSK, I didnt have a lot of what is in it today. Mine, like most peoples, changed over times as I saw a need for a different or new item. LOST and many others here have written excellent articles on their kits, which helped me a great deal. Take a few minutes, and list out all your items, and break them into groups, then post them here, I am sure everyone will be happy to help with suggestions and comments. Most of all, cover the basics, then add to as needed. No rush. MrC

    Sorry not on the list... but ya gooda figure being MrCoffee and allll.....
  8. My Current PSK

    Thanks guys. I do have 3 heavy duty contractor trash bags I carry in there. But a great suggestion. The patches are from Rat Cutlery, the ant is their Izula symbol for the Izula knife, and the ESEE patches is for the RC-5. I tend to like to switch the patches on the pack around or completely remove them if I am out on ARES/CERT, so they are all velcro.
  9. Ok, well it's been a while since I posted, and I wanted to get back into checking in now and again. Been kind of a strange year for me. Anyways, as I have posted before, I tend to have a kit on hand just about anywhere I go. I keep my main PSK in my truck, because I have a smaller one in my desk draw here at work. This isn't a BOB, but more of a Get home bag, that doubles as my ARES/CERT go kit. Suggestions and comment more then welcomed, I am always looking to improve my gear! Here goes: I looked at a number of carry all bags, and settled on the Maxpedition Typhoon, liking the monostrap style more then a backpack style. The Rat blades shown in the pictures stay out of sight unless I am off pavement. The izula is on my strap, and the RC-3p rides on the side.

The medical group tends to be a bit heavy. Winter I add sock liners, and thermals. While it looks like a lot, having carried it many miles, it rides very comfortably, and after the first half mile or so, I hardly notice its there.
  10. Survival Vest

    I posted an artcile from a guy who based his vest on a filson wool vest, and it was a very very complete setup, surprised me how well it wore. I have a photographers vest I could use, but I do not like the overall bulk of it... The orginial site I got it from is pretty much down, but the archive site is still operational. http://outdoors.magazine.free.fr/spip.php?article171&var_recherche=Vest&var_recherche=Vest http://outdoors.magazine.free.fr/spip.php?article172&var_recherche=Vest&var_recherche=Vest Good read, both parts one and two..

  14. 2009 H1N1

    Good info. Here is a worldmap of the outbreak so far, thou it isnt updated as often as it should be. But pretty accurate. http://healthmap.org/swineflu I actually saw someone wearing a N95 Mask driving to work today, which thru me for a loop (to say the least). She (i think) was a car with Mass plates that I passed. Have to go to a Family Support Conference this weekend, and I guess I am not the only one on edge about being around a large group of people because the state sent out a memo to us all that basically said "if you have flu like symptoms, stay home". I wouldnt go but it is part of Daniels funding for aid, so I really have no choice.

    Well this seems to be the real deal. Watching the reports carefully, reminding the kids about washing their hands, etc.
