Useful things on a keyring
A fox pea less whistle. Very loud and was once used in an actual life threatening rescue situation. Heard miles away far far better than a human voice and will not go hoarse. Bright coloured too.
Fenix torch. Very small bright and light. Used every day.
Fire steel. When I need fire I use a fire steel I have been doing this for about 7 months now. Hones the skills nicely and it is fun to light the children's birthday candles with it.
Nite light. Glows in the dark. Enough said.
Led light. A very handy thing if your torch runs out which it has. Cheap too.
I often work alone and away from civilisation. I need to attract attention when I enevitabbly fall down a big hole in the middle of the woods.
I also carry other gear with me which I will show shortly but this lives in my pocket.
Its not thw best way to think but I often add gear after a bad thing nearly or does happen.
A good example is when I put one foot through a hidden pane of glass and litterally unzipped my trousers from ankle to knee. How my leg escaped being unzipped too I do not know. Thank god because i may not have walked away having been 4 miles Anyway from the car and help in a deep forest. Something like that would probably bleed you out pretty quick if you didnt do something productive quickly. Ï realised a very easily accessible wound dressing or two and duct tape were probably good ideas.
