Aluminum Foil – The best thing about foil is you can wrap meat and veggies in it, throw it in a fire, and a few minutes later have a hot meal. It can also be molded into a bowl, cup, funnel, or a pot for boiling water. In addition, it can be used to enhance an antenna, to sharpen scissors, to make sun boxes for small plants, to collect dew from trees, and in the summer it can be put in windows to keep the heat out. But the most important usage: Tin foil hats!

keep chiggars and ticks from reaching your legs. There are many reasons pany hose
can help you:

- filter water;
- keep your soap clean and dry;
- act as a dust mask;
- improvise a fishing net or other cordage;
- collect berries or otherwise a vessel to help you forage in the wild (generally,
- it's a great carryall, such as for gathering tinder);

- use also to improvise a mosquito net;
- make a tourniquet or secure a bandage
