    Hi,

    Nows the time to prove that you havestillgotit and are not over the hill, impress the grandchildren even.

    Show them what life was like in the old days before computers when every boy scout was expected to be able to extact a little old lady from a horses hoof
    just using one of these survival kits.

    As a bonus, if you turn up at an SAS selection course with one of these on your belt then its an automatic pass.

    Hmmmmm. I reckon you would even be laughed out of the cubs with one of those!

    Far better off buying a Mora, brilliant knife and firesteel, and all you would need really.
    God bless Colonel Sanders. Marvellous man!

    I suppose it may help you build a fire, snare a Rabbit and skin it, eat the flesh and make yourself a pair of warm gloves, then use the compass to get yourself back to civilisation.

    Personally though, I would just ring a taxi to the nearest KFC.

    Our guides didn't do anything adventurous, the leader was an unmarried lady. I suppose her heart was in the right place, but , given her age at the time, and the time that has elapsed since I was a guide, she was brought up in an era when girls didn't do things like that, that was for boys. We did cooking sewing and homemaking.

    You are a bunch of cynics, where's your spirit of adventure ?

    It appears that your "get up and go" got up and went years ago. Sigh !!!

    Don't get me wrong Dezi, I'm not knocking it.

    Oops! Sorry. Actually I was.

    I've pretty much always got a torch and a leatherman on me. I don't normally go anywhere the I might need to try and start fire, so haven't really worried about how to start one. And, even with a mini blowtorch, it's actually quite hard to start a proper fire from random stuff you'll find in the woods. Never mind a sparky thing.

    The kit in OP might be worth throwing in the car glovebox for the blanket if nothing else...

    You have reminded me,

    The Cub Scout Promise:

    I promise that I will do my best
    To do my duty to God and to the Queen
    To help other people
    And to keep the Cub Scout Law.

    The Cub Scout Law:

    Cub Scouts always do their best
    Think of others before themselves
    And do a good turn every day.

    The Cub Scout Motto:

    Be Prepared
