Practicing starting fires with my ferro rod, and NO, I'm not the guy you've been hearing about in Los Angeles who's been starting all the fires. (He didn't use a ferro rod, he used automobiles to start his fires.)

Also distilled water with a solar still and got some ideas on how to improve the still.

Discovered how to find north from constellations OTHER than the big dipper.

Created an in-the-wallet, always-on-me set of flat tools: fresnel lens, razor blade, morse code cheat sheet, duct tape, and single towlette. In THEORY I can start a fire, cut food, communicate, clean, and bandage with what's in my wallet.

Reading abt the adventures of extreme ocean rafter William Willis. (You can survive on sea water? Really??!?)

Reading GT S/P forum religiously.
