    Pretty sure US uses NTSC formatting and Aus uses PAL, DVD might not be compatible......

    Wouldn't it just play the video upside down?


    Thanks for that info. I never would have imagined that DVD formats would vary by country.

    Damn Yes the DVD wouldn't work with any of my gear as it has "protection circuitry" but many thanx for the offer. I am actually surprised that our schools don't offer a program like this; but they don't. Too concerned with the "Stranger Danger" aspects of life in the city I guess

    Small world is right @reppans , first I heard of the Palmer Furnace was from you when you made a comment on Whiteblaze.net. concerning Hypothermia. You directed me here and since then I've been reading more and more threads. Today, this one popped up and recognized the title. Cool how things work out :dblthumb:

    Yeah I was suprised you hadn't heard of it here before. I don't get it, other than here where it's a viable emergency technique (and heck, I enjoy it sometimes just for luxury), other camping, backpacking, and even survivalist forums tend to be so closed minded and nay-sayers about it.

    I sat our for 30 minutes in 25* temps wearing jeans and a flannel shirt using a cheap wool blanket and a Palmer Furnace made from a soup can. I was comfortable. 20190110_114829.jpg

    There are links to DL printed materials as well as a hi-def version of the video...

    Another spin on the Palmer Furnace... it was ~20F with wind chill and we were toasty - almost fell asleep (but safely). Also solves the problem of my dog freezing from inactivity when I stop for lunch breaks.

    Note,

    If you do this (break down c4 from a mine or demo kit) at an FTX and aren't near death; you will be later from the paperwork and a senior NCOs boot up your posterior. Not from the safety perspective, but from the spoldey thing accountability side.
