    Dang... Never thought of using a pencil sharpener. Good idea. I'm going to have to start carrying one of those in the camping bag.

    Just to clarify I use it on pencil sized twigs. I have been looking for one of those pencil sharpeners for those huge novelty pencils though because I think it might be more useful.

    Also I never thought about it as odd until yesterday when I was mentioning it to a someone but I keep several of those elastic wrist braces (just a long piece of elastic about 3" wide with Velcro on the ends) in my kit. They are in the kit to help compress stuff like my down puffer jacket, and hold together pieces of kit like tins of stuff. When I get where I am going I use them for everything from cozies for my stainless steel water bottle to holding wooden sticks together for taller tarp poles. I originally kept them because I have issues with my knees, and if I walk on rocky terrain for more than a few miles I appreciate one wrapped under my knee. Over the years they have been used for rolled ankles(my wifes and mine) and they would be very useful for a splint if it came to it. I would guess that I have 3-6 in my kit at all times.
    You can never make anyting idiot-proof, whenever you get close they just build a better idiot.

    small tea candles - much easier to make a fire once lit

    double yes on the yo-yo's


    The rat trap is excellent. No kidding, never even gave that a thought. And, works both ways, dinner, or varmint control.

    Did you make the piston or buy it? I have seen them on eBay, and have been thinking about trying one out. They do look interesting.
