Re: OAUSA Net July 31, 2014 - Camping Repair Kit

BTW: Knowing a few good knots always helps. Rope and paracord management is very important because sometimes the wrong knot is just a tragedy waiting to happen. From my Ranger days: " MONGASSO Knot " Enough of the wrong knot in order for it to hold and meet the intended purpose (if you don't know th...

Re: OAUSA Net July 31, 2014 - Camping Repair Kit

I recommend (not in any order of priority): 1. 550 Paracord 2. Shrink Wrap 3. Bungees 4. Hockey Cloth Tape 5. Self-Adhesive Sport Wrap 6. Spray Cooking Spray/Petroleum Jelly (leaves an oily film but it works good on pine pitch) 7. Various Sized Snap Links 8. Waxed Dental Floss (in addition to the se...

Re: OAUSA Net - June 12, 2014 - Wilderness Communication Options

I am a real big fan of the Garmin Rino line. I have not yet got into the APRS system but for a one on one, one on many communication product, without a license, the Rino line transmits the location of one GPS/Radio to any of the other radios monitoring the same channel/CTCSS setting. Your specific r...

Been pretty busy over the past few weeks but I thought I would post a couple of moon pictures for sharing not necessarily for the banner.

Re: OAUSA Net - March 13, 2014 - Vehicle Maintenance

In case someone besides me needs some help picking the right glove. I am always confused about it because I may not be allergic, but there may be others who can't tolerate latex. I tend to buy a box and put them in various kits as personal protective equipment (go bag, medical kit, etc.). slide-1-10...

Re: OAUSA Net – February 20, 2014 – Vehicle Essentials

So, at the risk of breaking the sound vs. visual barrier, I'll take the first stab at this. 1. Full size spare properly inflated. 2. Old belt moved in from last change and kept as an emergency belt (depending on how bad you let your used belts get). 3. Jumper cables. 4. Proper "star" for lug nuts. I...

Re: OAUSA Net 12-19-13 - Christmas gifts for the outdoor Enthusi

The Hoppes bore snake can be washed. I've read that they can be machine washed but because it has the brush and the brush can be a little damaging to other items, I think a good hand wash should be fine. Soak in regular laundry detergent of your liking, hand wash, rinse well and you are back in busi...

Re: OAUSA Net – December 5, 2013 – More ammunition Handloading

Dave, I have found that cleaning solutions get the job done but I have not yet perfected any technique so I am okay with tumbling and I'm just getting started in the liquid and u-sonic cleaning method. I really like the "deep clean" of parts and mechanisms I would rather not take apart for fear of s...
