comment How can you navigate / determine your location in thick fog?
@Roddy -- It depends on the persons mental state. It is quite often that stopping and relaxing is actually more important than stopping and thinking. Lost, in the wrong mental state, thinking is a downward panic spiral.

comment What essential items should go in a small first aid kit?
@Roddy -- Good point I updated it for others. Though if they are allergic to latex, one would presume they know not to pack latex gloves ;)

comment How to choose a fire steel and use it most effectively?
I concur with berry120 and would add that part of the angle is the angle of the device. I have a rod which comes with a striker that has a slight burr (sharp curl) all along one side. That burr makes sparking very easy due to the angle it creates.

comment Is there a way to light a fire in the wild using rocks?
@Mr.Wizard -- Quite possibly. My comment was more concerning the nearness of duplication, which jmusser has resolved with new wording.

comment How do I extend the life of waterproof leather boots?
Leather vs. Synthetic is pretty critical. The care for both is different. Any way you can help determine which it is? Take a picture and post it?
