NEWS – Could you make a fire if you had to? Even if you had a lighter or a Ferro rod, it might be difficult to make a fire in an emergency situation due to weather conditions like wind and rain. PYRO Putty is a non-toxic fire starter that is both waterproof and weather resistant. A quarter-sized blob of PYRO Putty will burn for up to 15 minutes. The putty comes in .5 and 2 oz cans and is available in different colors for different uses. They also sell a rechargeable arc lighter that has a built-in storage compartment for the putty. If you want some PYRO Putty and the lighter for your go bag, head over to Amazon or pyroputty.com where the lighter is $29.99 and the putty starts at $5.99.

  2. Back in my younger (stupider?) days, we used to go snow camping fairly often. One year we camped near a small (or so we thought) creek that was mostly frozen over to have ready access to water, we trenched around our tent and setup camp, but in the middle of the night we woke up to some very loud cracks, a few minutes later we were all freezing and sloshing around in a couple inches of ice cold water. The creek we were camped by was not as small as we thought, and was being held back from our camp spot by an ice damn, one that gave out in middle of the night. We were not able get a fire started initially because everything we had got soaked, eventually we did using a road flare. After that road flares became part of my emergency camping bag, however this would have been much safer/smaller. Now I’m too old for that kind of crazyness, I’ll take looking at snow though a window thank you very much.

    1. Great (scary) story Andrew! I’ve never been camping in my life. I’d still like to do it sometime (maybe) but my idea of camping now would be inside a tricked out camper. I’m thinking one of those big ones that have a hydraulic room that slides out. I’d also need a mobile satellite for internet and media streaming and the most important of all, a real bathroom with a shower. 😉

      1. Camping up to age 16 involved a backpack and sleeping bag, MAYBE a tent, Then I moved to MUST have tent, around 20 I required a GOOD quality air mattress, by 30 a Air mattress and solid cot was needed, I’m in my 40’s now, and I’m with you on the tricked out camper.
