    UPDATE! winner has been chosen. jrtaylor155. thanks to all who entered,





    been getting some good advice from this site so its about time I paid some of it back. So Im gearing up to do a giveaway. this will run for a couple of weeks while I put the full kit together.

    whats in it? for starters,

    gerber folding saw with new blades

    UST survival saw

    100' of paracord.

    the red pack mentioned in this vid
    Winter Bushcraft part 1 - YouTube

    a fire kit of some kind. likely a firesteel and some tinder.

    brunton compass

    will add to it some.

    and of course the rules. open to all though if you've won one of these in the past, I encourage you to share the wealth and let others try.
    just say Im in and maybe add your favorite piece of advice you'd like to pass on.
    Mine would be prepare for everything. have backups for your backups.

    My advice would be to just get outside! You can only learn so much from a forum, so you need to get out, and test all the knowledge you've picked up here.
