I found a really unique item a couple days ago. It’s a steel straw. I found it at Marshalls department store. How do these play into a survival situation? Let me give you a couple of ideas.
A survival straw can help you with your thirst. If you are in an area that has a limited Water Supplies but maybe has a few Springs, these straws can be carried with you and help suck the water out of a spring and placed into a container to boil.Or , if you are adventurous I have no other choice , drink yourself.
You’re thinking that drinking water from a non pure source may be dangerous Well chances are you could get sick. However, you could die of thirst a lot quicker. It’s an expedient measure in order to soak up water in areas that are difficult to reach. Areas such as Hollows in rocks, ledges where water seeps into from a steep cliff, Gathering water from very very shallow pools. Your uses are only limited by your imagination.
A straw can be used in fire starting. How you ask?
Well once you’ve gathered your tender and your fluff and your rest of your fire itemd needed to make the fire, go for the rest of the night, a straw can be used as a bellows to fan the flames of your tender bundle. The bundle can either be in your hand or can already be in place in your fire pit. the steel straw can be used to supply a regulated air flow in order to get those charcoals to burst into a glorious Flame.
Another situation a straw could be used would be to splint a broken finger. It’s expedient and strong.
This unique tool has a lot of uses if you think about it.
If anybody else has any ideas please forward them to me and I’ll post them on this post or you can add it in the comment section.
Until next time be safe practice your rules at 3 I remember when you get in a bad situation to use stop.
