How do I get a summer job on a fire watch?
What are some of the skills I need?
Anyone have any stories?

How did ancient people around the world survive with stone tools? What about before that? I'm really interested in survival and ancient, primitive stuff.

Let's take a moment to discuss the venerable Bundeswehr winter parka.

Pros:
- Nigh-indestructible cotton twill outer
- Removable liner
- Available everywhere, especially in the NATOsphere
- Loden is the best camouflage color on the planet. If you set this thing down on a stump, you'd better remember which one.

Cons:
- Can't wear in public in Europe without being mistaken for either a left- or right-wing terrorist
- Can't wear in public in USA without being mistaken for a homeless cannibal
- Heavy as shit and 10x heavier when wet
- Waterproofing consists of two fragile slips of plastic under the shoulders
- Zipper doesn't extend all the way down
- Two slash pockets instead of voluminous pouches like everyone else's armed forces
- Poorly fitted. You get winded just trying to hike with it. Arms too short to fit anyone but a Chernobyl child.

My girlfriend lost my edc flashlight, so now I'm in the market for another one. It was a protac 1L-1aa, which I really liked, except for the shitty clip. I'm looking for something that's around $40, uses lithium batteries and puts out at least 350 lumens. Any recommendations?
