When they found him, his breath was minty fresh...


Recently a group of North Carolina college students ventured into the Linville Gorge for a bit of a hike only to get lost and have to spend a cold night in the woods. They were on an afternoon hike but were unprepared for the cold weather.

A good rule is to never go into the woods without the means to stay over night with some measure of comfort. I bet those students would have given their greek letters for one these Altoid tin survival kits.

This kit is designed to be a 72-hour kit. It is designed to be small and portable, but also to be effective in providing for the Survival "Rule of Threes."


A person can live for:Three minutes without air.
Three hours without shelter.
Three days without water.
Three weeks without food.
Three months without love.

Three what without fly fishing?

Now that is a good question!

Three seconds without wishing I were fly fishing instead of working!
