    Sorry about the derail Tokwan.

    To answer your original question. I practice things like primitive snares, shelters, and fire starting when I'm camping or exploring. My main gear is my survival kit. I do have a mini kit but I don't get in it often.
    I had a compass, but without a map, it's just a cool toy to show you where oceans and ice are.

    Hey, Winter. Any idea why the no-see-ums are less vicious that close to the shore? Last time I tried to camp on the beach was on Dania beach 29 years ago and they were vicious. I grew up on skin-so-soft and no-see-um nets on the tents. We'd get lit up at Jonathan Dickinson and Sebastian Inlet.

    Not sure. I'm sure wind has something to do with it. Maybe the salt air?

    You and I may have different species of tiny flying gnats with varied habitat preferences.

    I tend to try out things while out for a hike or while camping. I've also tried new toys or techniques at home. I'd hate to "test" something for the first time when I need it the most.

    No SAR was needed.
