Flip-flops.

Even if you are told you're going to be stuck in the field for weeks on end, there may be a couple of snivel runs to clean up.  May as well be prepared.

Even if there isn't, they're great for airing your feet out when the situation permits....

Really you believe that? Don't you watch mythbusters?

From what I understand, C4 requires a blasting cap for detonation, correct? A combination of heat and pressure that can not be generated by the force of a boot stomping on it?

Correct me if i'm wrong!

I meant the boot stomping as a joke :)

C4 burns too hot & fast to stomp out....the C ration cans we used would be red hot in about 10-15 seconds.....

Just a thought - have we mentioned a weapon and ammo?  ;D

They are already playing with C4, and other fun things, now you want to give them weapons...?  ;D

Well, there was already talk about bringing a big 'ol knife with which to take out sentries. I suggest a garrote might be better.  It's not as messy and can double as a snare if you get lost in the woods and need to find food.  ;)

:facepalm: A Tomahawk is too big to pack in a ruck, plus its smarter than most soldiers. They know where Iraq is..the missiles that is.  ;)

If God really IS this guy's spotter, he wouldn't need the scope....

Is the Vatican getting that serious?

I'm not Catholic.

Should I be worried?

That dude is so fake. I can barely pull my tomahawk out on the fly- it's impossible to put it away without asking the dude behind me for help.  ;)


Years later I still find myself still toying with kit layouts. For me the must haves are;

Thermal top
snugpak softie jacket
gore text stealth suit
headlamp
LARGE RAMBO LIKE FIGHTING KNIFE
softie sleeping bag4Bivy Bag
ranger blanket
shemagh

right behind  must have;
MSR pocket rocket-butane fuel-canteen cup-cup a soup/mr noodles/hot chocolate
field pillow
SOG tomahawk

Big Rambo knife and tomahawk ? Really? ::) do you bring a compound bow and explosive tipped arrows for taking out bunkers like Rambo also or do you prefer a cross bow with oak shafts so they shatter better when they hit the sentries necks, ala Wild Geese, oh wait that was what the Rambo knife was for.

I remember when it came 6 Tabs on a white card with big black letters POISON or was that POISSON?

There was an old army urban legend about the military training assistance program student from a Francophone 3rd world country who ended up in hospital after eating some of the tablets. His excuse was he thought the tablets were fish and Canadians had misspelt POISSON.

:facepalm:
