    Survival Medicine: Don’t Fall For Immersion Foot - 0

    Frostbite is a scary, injury that can cause permanent damage and is a constant threat in sub-freezing winter conditions. But did you know that moisture combined with cool temperatures can give you similar damage to frostbite—at temperatures above freezing?

    This condition is commonly known as immersion foot, and it is a chronic issue for cold-weather outdoorsmen and many homeless people. If the skin on your feet (or other extremities) is subject to days of uninterrupted moisture and cold temperatures between 32 and 50  degrees, the tissue can swell and shrivel; and some of the tissue can even die. This damage is similar to frostbite injuries, though immersion foot tends to sneak up on its victims, as opposed to the rapid harm and obvious surface symptoms of frostbite. The tissue does not freeze with immersion foot, but the circulatory, nerve, and skin damage can still be significant. [ Read Full Post ]

    Considering the wintery weather we are already encountering in late fall this year, you better be ready to do some fire building in the event you get into trouble over the next few months.

When it comes to fuel, it’s hard to beat the good old cotton ball soaked in petroleum jelly, but Grate Chef FireStarter packets make a great back up. [ Read Full Post ]

    Survival Skills: How to Identify and Treat Hypothermia - 2

    Every outdoor enthusiast has probably had a touch of hypothermia at one point or another, and perhaps you’ve had more than just a touch. This dangerous cooling of the body occurs when a person’s body core temperature drops below 95  degrees Fahrenheit.

    Survival Gear Review: The Streamlight Microstream Flashlight - 0

    LED flashlights have come a long way over the past few years, and shrunk in both size and price. I recently received the Streamlight Microstream as a gift (thanks, Wes!) and here’s what I thought of it. Spoiler alert: great stocking stuffer, if you’re planning that far ahead already.

    From the size of the light and the AAA battery enclosed in the package, I was expecting the Microstream to perform like a typical keychain light: Handy, but for short-range use only. But when I installed the battery and clicked it on, I realized that this little sucker is bright. [ Read Full Post ]
