You can bring just about anything with you on a plane as long as you declare it and check it under the plane. But if you aren't checking a bag and don't want to go through the hassle, this kit is something you can have in your carry-on to help you be a little bit more prepared.

But one of my favorites is History’s Alone, in which 10 contestants (14 in Season 4) are dropped off in the wilderness and compete to see who can survive the longest while isolated. The show is now in its eighth season, which you can watch on Netflix or Hulu. In the mold of Survivorman’s Les Stroud, contestants operate their own camera equipment. And they are allowed only 10 items to help them survive as l
In our recent blog post on how to make char cloth, we cover a number of the downsides of char cloth as a fire starting material: it’s fragile, and it’s useless if it gets wet. Luckily, there’s a handy device for carrying char cloth that addresses both those problems: the trench lighter (aka a “rope lighter” or a “sailor’s lighter”). A trench lighter works by catching a spark in a charred portion of a rope. The burnt rope then works just like char cloth, turning that spark
