Daily Edge for Sun. Aug 11 – Prepped & Ready

GOOD TO KNOW.  Storms build in later today under cooler and cloudy conditions.  While you duck the rain, we’ve got some ideas for summer safety from errant fish hooks to fire starters to a cord that works just about everywhere.

MEDIC!  A fishhook in the thumb or hand can be an unpleasant experience, especially when it passes the barb.  Here are some tips from American Family Physician for four methods of hook removal, but if things are serious, it’s best to head to the ER for some professional help.


FIRE UP.  A quick addition to any tackle box, hunting pack or survival kit is a Firestarter like the 5-in-1 from Swiss Safe.  Having a spark source helps set kindling alight and gets things going when it’s cold.


PARAMOUR. Parachute cord, whether stashed in a sealed roll or as part of a survival bracelet can easily be used to lash together wood, tarps and other items for shelter in the wild.
