    Default Anyone try Sport Smoke Signal Grenades?

    I can see these coming into use when you can't get a signal fire going.

    I like the idea of those. I was also going to get one of those flare launcher kits at Wal-Mart. They're like $35.

    Yeah, I think the aerial flare is your best bet, esp if theres air recon looking for you... Even if not, a red flare is "supposed" to mean SOS... *IF* the one that sees it, knows that or not is off the table.

    The big plus with the Orion flare launcher kit is that it's available locally and there's no hazmat fees.

    I'll probably put one of the kits on February's shopping list since they're relatively cheap.

    That orion set from WM looks good but I have never used one of those to signal or start an emergency fire.
    If there is a boating supply store near you (independent or West Marine etc) the people there may have recommendations as well (may be able to special order). Here is one of many online sources but the hazmat shipping is a issue. Landfall Navigation

    Even though the flare launcher can double as an ignition source I already have a couple of sources for getting a fire started.
