I'm betting the velveteen gift box cost more to make than the trinkets inside. It would be a great gift though, for the advanced spelunker...lol

Oh, not me! It's "true professional equipment" and I'm, of course, just an amateur.

Not to mention, it goes for 30 euros... $40 USD.

"advanced spelunker" :rofl:

I guess it would be for the advanced spelunker who wants to accessorize.

Yes, I got that one too a couple years ago, probably the same Christmas you did. The next time my life depends on a miniature tootsie roll and a piece of Big Red chewing gum, I'll be ready!

Probaly to hide the bad breath you'll have from not eating anything in a while, or to avoid boredom while you're waiting to be rescued (make tiny sculptures with the gum) lol

Alright people, let's not dis the "survival kit in a sardine can."

The technical term for the "tootsie roll" is "energy nugget."

LMAO :rofl: since I won a CASE of these on ebay a few years back for about twenty bucks. They were fun to give away to folks!

The best kit on the market is Doug Ritter's "Adventure Medical Kit" produced item. I only say that because he quoted me on his page.
Ha!

Thank the Gods of chewing gum and tootsy rolls

Postby Squirrel Bait » Mar 28, 2007 9:35 pm

Chewing Gum is a MUST for any survival kit. I rebuilt the worn down Rotor in my car using the conductive properties of the wrapper held in place by a small piece of gum. (Ran for two years like that) The kit has a fishing hook. And with little balls of toots can fish for over a week (esp if the ground is frozen). Not to mention the possible chemical engineering with the component parts of those two Items together. If is has a small piece of hard soap in the kit You can accomplish almost any needed feat with the proper know-how.

Ok, so here's a challange for all the MacGyver / survivalist types. Just what oddball things (beyond the obvious) could you do with the survival kit in a can?
