Q: With my family, camping up north can be bitter and harsh, I hate to think of the misery that would come from having to live this way long term. Using heating “indoors” in our tent or cooking can cause CO2. Other than the obvious, how can we prevent this?
A: Good question. Here are a couple of good resources for casual campers and survivalists alike, but the quick answer? Grab a plug in AND battery powered CO2 monitor and alarm. Use with generator or on batteries alone! $30.00 bucks on Amazon!
Q: I’ve been collecting altoid/mint tins for the better part of a year. I intend to build most of my B.O.B. with them. Any suggestions on what I can put in them?
