    I have had better luck with the loc-tite brand in the gel type if you want it to last. Get it in the hard plastic container, not the foil tube. Think of it more of a disposable cold pack if you like. One and done, but really nice for the one. Light weight and doesn’t take much room.

    I'm glad I stumbled across this thread. Your post reminded me of using this and I will be putting some of these in my bag. Thanks

    being a woods guy, i have all the standard stuff to keep you alive.

    But i carry packets of salad dressing. So smothering meat while cooking animals/meat i have gathered. Any thing will taste good loaded with Italian dressing on it. And works with all meats and fish. I replace every 6 moths or so.

    Another good fire starter:

    Cut cardboard egg carton into individual cups. Fill with dryer lint and then melt wax over it.

    A little bulky but they will burn longer than the Vaseline and cotton balls.

    While it's not paracord, I put a pack of waxed dental floss in with my stuff. Handy when needing to lash little things together and handy for small repairs. Can be used as thread also. It's pretty strong.
