Ferrocerium rod, not magnesium. magnesium fire starters have a ferrocerium rod embedded in a small block of magnesium. The user shaves off small flakes of magnesium with a knife, then strikes the rod to produce a spark and ignite the flakes. The flakes burn extremely hot, allowing larger tinder to be readily ignited.

OP's doesn't have the magnesium bar. The user would need finer tinder to catch the spark from the ferrocerium rod.

CONTEST CLOSED: Random roll winners: GreatCatch, Bellainara, chobette

We all know how much of a pain in the...anus...add-ons are. You're browsing Amazon, see something you like, say to yourself "Ooooo I NEED this in my life, but...I don't feel like spending that $25 minimum...and now I'm pissed, so I'm gonna throw my computer at the wall."

So for those of you that have add-ons, this is for you!

RULES

1.) Must have an [Intro] before today.

2.) Must be active in the sub in areas other than contests.

3.) Leave a comment and include raffle phrase: "HADOUKEN"

[Closed] So today the motor in our car blew on a major mountain highway about 3 hours from home. After getting one tow to the first town with a shop then another to the town we live in and spending about 5 hours with a tow truck driver, we are finally home. Instead of dwelling on the bad though, the good is that we got to have lunch with my family, we learned how to play dominos that we found in the trunk, and we are both safe. Also, I am still able to gift and make someone else smile! Winner will be choosen tomorrow or Tuesday depending on how the days go.

The rules are simple. 1) Tell us something you think everyone should have in their car in case of road side problems. 2) Link something survival or car related on your wishlist. (Perferably around $10 or less) 3) Check your oil regularly! (I'll just take your word on this one)

Happy Sunday!

Alright guys, going through all the entries now then picking a random winner. Sorry for the delay, ithas been a crazy few days!

Always always ALWAYS have a spare tire in your car + know how to change a tire + have the tools necessary to do so. You will never believe how helpful it is to know how to manage something like this yourself, especially if you travel a lot, run into trouble at night, or somewhere you don't feel safe.

Most survival related thing on my wishlist is this Magnesium Fire Starter Tool which would be a great tool to have whenever I go camping/hiking or just whenever you NEED a fire asap <3

Just had my oil changed recently + an inspection! all good to go!

I am placing an order this evening for some camping gear that I need pretty badly. I want to get a few folks some add on items, as well.

Most of you probably have heard me say this 100 times, but I am taking an ambitious beach camping trip this summer with a 9 year old girl who is addicted to tablet apps, a 13 year old girl who loves to watch television and 15 year old boy who is rarely seen not playing Wii games. I really want to instill a love for the outdoors in these (my brother's) children before it is too late. I am close to all of them and they usually have fun with me, but asking them to leave behind their devices and completely unplug for seven days is a whole other story! But THE BEACH! I hope it is a trip that they will remember for years to come and I wouldn't miss this time of their lives for anything at all. So, as I prepare (and overplan) for this important trip, I want to include you guys at RAoA.

  1. Tell me about camping trips past and plans for trips in the future.

  2. Show me some add ons (and under fives) that you might want to help you enjoy some outdoor fun this spring and summer - and I will be lenient with what I will accept as long as it was added before today.

  3. But mostly just promise to get outdoors + love your family + be kind to animals or i will kill you.

See, here's the most important key item to having fun, which is also in my list.

This little firestarter holds the secret ingrediant to that campfire confection we call s'mores. Sure, you can make a smore at home, shove everything on a plate in a microwave for a few seconds or if you have a BBQ, just turn that sucker on and go for gold.

But it's not the same. It's the smoke. It instills in the marshmallow as you turn it //just// so, so that you can have a perfectly golden cylinder of sugar that is immediately slid between graham and chocolate wherein the heat from the marshmallow makes the chocolate just soft enough.

It holds the secret to a well burned hot dog on a stick, kept a little too close to the coals. Boils water for hot cocoa. Eggs and bacon if you are so brave, or to help fry up a fresh caught fish.

It's essential for sitting on logs and chairs around the fire with blankets on your shoulder as you tell stories and laugh.

It's an essential part of a cub scouts camping gear which I will soon have to start gathering to prep him for overnight camping, and to attempt to camp somewhere other than our own yard for the first time as a family.

:fist bumps for your major camping trip: You go, you have fantastic family fun time! Make sure you bring your camera's :D

So here we go again.

Pick something off your list, under $5 (I have prime) that engages one of the five senses. Let me know which sense you pick. I will pick an item for each sense, so five prizes!

If you don't know what I'm taking about, the five sense are: -Sight -Hearing -Smell -Taste -Touch

Also, you must have an intro, cause I want to know all about ya!

Contest ends sometime before the weekend.

This fire starter for several reasons:
First reason (sight), I can build a fire with it at night so that I can see by fire or candle.
Second reason (sound), I can sit and listen to the unique and comforting sounds only a crackling fire can make. Even when the fire is out, the snap of the cooling coal is just as unique.
Third reason (smell), the only thing that smells better than a campfire, is the food you cook over it.
Fourth reason (taste), see third reason to understand how taste is now involved.
Fifth reason (touch), the warmth a fire gives the soul and the heat it gives the body necessary for life.
Sixth reason, look at that price drop! It's 99% off!

This contest is closed. Going to read through, raffle one or two and choose one or two. Might take awhile but will gift by 11:59 tomorrow night.

I don't actually know what bonanza means.

What I do know is that there are a few things I need and I'm going to choose a few add-ons for you, no earlier than tonight but maybe tomorrow.

If there's something you want, tell me. Edit for clarification (bc I'm pretty unsure myself) - this contest is for add-on items. No price range specifically but I have a larger contest going, so I'm thinking to do several smaller things. If the item is a prime item, and not add-on, I might consider it, if I just happen to love it. But your best bet is to post an add-on. Or two.

Clear as mud? Good!

Raffle phrase (may or may not be used. Probably not. But maybe. ) :

[CONTEST] Women have it too easy, help me find cheap items for my WL! [R]

Jan. 3, 2014

You women don't have any idea how easy you have it! There are so many little trinkets etc that are so cheap on Amazon for women, but there are few (that I can think of) small useful things for men. You can get all the makeup you want but I'm stuck with a hand full of seeds!

Your challenge is as follows, find me items to put on MY wishlist, that are under 5, or $10 max. Books are discouraged since I have a long list that I'm trying to read through as it is.

A little about me, I like most nerdy things (Never watched Dr. Who), outdoors, engineering thingies, desk stuff, planting/gardening, camping, fishing, cooking, guns and games (board and pc/ps3). Any other questions feel free to ask!

I don't intend on using reddit raffle as I want you guys to try! Pick as many items as you want and even add them to your list if you want! Winner will get one item off their list under $10 w/ shipping (I have prime).

Let's see some ideas!

EDIT: This contest will end sometime over the weekend since there are so many good ideas floating around here, feel free to update yours until the contest is over!

EDIT2: CLOSED Thank you all so much for your submissions, this gave me some great new additions to my wishlist!

Winner is SuperExtraSpicy

I'd bring this with me. Without the ability to make fire, you're fucked. And I'd head south, towards the NYC suburbs where my relatives live. I'm surrounded by woods here (and I'm useless in wooded areas), but if nothing else, I think I could survive close to the ocean. Maybe.

Dec. 20, 2013

I think many of you lads and lass' know about my love of the outdoors. I'm contemplating a campout over winter break. There are two caveats. It's cold, and money is tight. I still want to spread some holiday cheer though. So, list one unusual (not a wool cap or gloves type thing) item under $10.00 ($15.00 if the item is Prime Eligible) that you would take one a winter camping trip and why it would be useful or make the trip more enjoyable (Make sure to add it to your wish list as well).

The contest will end tonight at midnight (EST) and the winner will receive the exact same item that I will be purchasing.

One winner will be selected. Have fun!

This is my first contest, so if I need to do anything additional or change anything, please let me know!

Show me your add on Christmas wishes people! I love doing add on contests because it lets me gift a bunch of people at once. So here's the rules:

  • link me an add on item wish under $5
  • have an intro post and have gifted at least once
  • say "pretty please"!
  • I will raffle and gift around 5pm PST today.

Love and love and be excellent to each other.

Dec. 6, 2013

As I sit here, unable to go anywhere or do anything due to the current snowpocalypse and the fact that I'm still a few hours away from being able to post a new thread in /r/gameswap, weird ideas go through my head.

NOT THOSE KIND OF WEIRD IDEAS YOU FREAKING PERVERT.

The weird idea of when I should reveal the horrifying new contest I have devised. So, whist I am bored out of my freaking skull, I figured "Why the heck not?" So this is the new contest. Here's how it works: you enter here, with your item. At an undetermined time (that may or may not coincide with when Amazon pays me for the books I sold) sometime between now and next Friday at 10 PM CST, I raffle the winner. Pretty simple, right? Wrong! When the contest is over, I will post another [Contest] thread (and I have /u/Sp3cia1K's permission to do this) stating the name of the winner within. That winner has five minutes to reply. If they do, they win the item. If they don't, I raffle again. The cycle repeats until we have a winner. Additional rules are below.

  • The item must be $5 or under including shipping; I have Prime.

  • As my good friend /u/purebredginger's good friend /u/l337chica would say, no linky no winny.

  • Please no NSFW or illegal drug/alcohol items; prescription drug things are fine.

  • No add-ons.

  • No raffle phrase. Your comment is your entry!

Best of luck and stay safe out there,

MMAPhreak21

  • Water purification tablets
  • Gun + ammo
  • Knife
  • Rubbing alcohol / hydrogen peroxide / antibiotic ointment
  • Bic Lighters in my cars, as well as protein + granola bars

I was thinking of getting some individually packed first aid type items to stash not only in the vehicles but in bug out bags and also my general survival cache. What are your guys' thoughts on how I should spend the last $26? (On Amazon.com only)

I would get a flint and magnesium stick. I have the firesteel and it works but I feel like the magnesium with flint and steel works consistently for me. With the fire steel I have a hard time getting the sparks to last long enough to ignite the tinder whereas with the magnesium I can get it to light almost immediately. You could also get a backpacking stove I have that one and it works really well and is super light and tiny. It just screws onto a butane can. I would also recommend something other than those mylar blankets. A wool blanket is a good alternative, much better than mylar, though I have heard that mylar in conjunction with wool works very well. Good luck!

My dream vacation is here, in Finland.

I would want my boyfriend of 13 years and nobody else with me, unless my dogs could go. We would do nothing other than lie in bed and stare at the sky, taking in every ounce of beauty the world has to offer.

I want to go there because life is so hectic, even a vacation can be hectic. I just want to relax. Slow down a little bit. I think this place would be perfect for that.

Thanks for the contest, it was fun, and made me want a vacation lol.

This fire starter would make a nice edition to my emergency bag.

I had registration today. Apparently I was confused about class times so two of the ones I wanted conflicted, plus another one was full. I'm going to have to take a j-term. :(

Help me feel better by gifting you! Write/link to something funny and have/link to an item on your wishlist under that is $5 or less (I have prime) as I am a poor college student.

Include the phrase "classes are dumb" for reddit raffle purposes. Contest ends at 8:30 EST today. Thanks!

EDIT: Contest closed, guys. Thanks for your help in cheering me up!

I had the bug to buy something cheap on Amazon, and I haven't posted on this sub in a very long time, so I'm getting back in the swing of things. So why not turn it into a contest. The rules are easy, just post something you really want under $15 and I will buy us both the winning item. I am male, but you can still pick female related items, I'll buy it for my girlfriend. I'll be picking a winner in just under 6 hours (4pm EST). Good luck!

Ok so I just had a wonderful Labor Day camping and fishing (fly and normal) and hiking. I'm stuck in California around people who have never fished, couldn't imagine sleeping on the ground, and have only gotten blisters from heels. So many indoorsy people, which is great for them, but don't look at me in disgust when you ask about my weekend and I tell you about the rivers/lakes we fished. To each his own, right? So there has to be a few of you that enjoy being outside, right?! This contest is to find you!

(A) Tell me your favorite outdoor activity (rock climbing, hiking, fishing, hunting, backpacking, etc.)

(B) If you have had a crazy experience, tell me about it!

(C) Link me an item on your gift list that has to do with outdoorsy stuff.

I will choose one winner and raffle a second winner. I may buy the item you post, but may buy something else random off your list. Contest Ends Friday and 5pm because that is when my brother gets in town. :) Raffle phrase is: "Every blister is a memory".

Keep it under $5 with tax, digital is acceptable too. Also, tell me a story about something work related. You best experience or funniest customer... Anything really. Go!

Canteen Knife Compass Firesteel

6 years agoa_very_stupid_guy posted on Bushcraft.
Aug. 14, 2013

My thoughts are this: A full tang knife will be more durable and more apt towards any bushcrafting (Becker BK2 is, Moras are 3/4 tang). Don't think that a knife is an axe. Nor a machete. There's "halfway" blades, but they're jacks of all trades. IE: Kukri [knife/machete].

Granted, I'm just a goof who tinkers with his stuff when I go out in the woods.

Those two knives blow the MORA lineup away, as they should at their pricepoint. I think they'd be great, just the value of the Mora and the extent I'd need them for is just fine for me.

edit: Just to mention, I'm a cheapo. My firesteel is this from amazon lol. Works well enough for me.

June 20, 2013

So, you ever find something you really want or need, get all excited because it's uber-cheap, but then realize it's an Add-on Item, so unless you order $25 worth of other stuff, you won't be able to get it?

Well, this contest is for you!

My boys are turning 5 and 7 in a couple weeks, so I'll be ordering their gift on Amazon (probably a couple Playmobil sets- yay for imaginative play!) Since the total will be around $20, I thought I would squeeze in a little gifting!

To enter:

  • Link me to an Add-on Item on your WL that is under $5.
  • Briefly describe how you would use the aforementioned item to help you survive on a deserted island. Be as creative and silly as you want to be! ;)
  • Include the phrase turtles are awesome, as the raffle phrase.

Winning:

  • Winner will be randomly selected using RedditRaffle on 6/29.
  • If someone really impresses me with their creative survival skills, a bonus gift may be chosen at my discretion.

I'm a Girl Scout volunteer who teaches fire safety and stuff, so obviously, I've wanted this for a while.

It's difficult to find a more creative way it would help me survive than to start fire, but I could also use it as a mini-surfboard to surf on while I fish, and also to swim with the turtles because turtles are awesome.

I thought it would be fun to have for camping and just messing around. Never did I know a few days after when a contest on reddit would the world be overrun by zombies. We all thought it was just for tv and movies. No one was prepared for what was about to happen...except for, of course, the stars of American Preppers. But we'll save their story for another time.

I am up in a tree write now waiting for a group of walkers to stumble on by me. My all of my belonging are in a pack about a 100 yards away, laying on the ground. All of my belongings except one. A random internet stranger bought me a magnesium fire starter just for fun. Now it never leaves my side, it is what will keep me warm in the coming winter.

I hope they are surviving.
