This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com I got this heart tin as a wedding party favor. Originally it contained mints but after they were gone, I kept the container.

Recently, I saw a link on Survival Blog on the same topic with Jim Rawles saying if you’re going to do this, you must cover the entire match with nail polish. Being a type personality I still had some questions in my mind: – Does it have to be wooden matches, or can you use paper matches that you get for free in […]

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com I purchased a copy of The Amazing 2000-Hour Flashlight by Ron Brown. It’s a manual that shows you how to add a 30-cent resistor to a $5 flashlight, to create a light that will run for 2000 hours on the same battery.
