    Spare tire = signal fire. Let insurance cover the rest. Who needs a buck when you'll get a new truck?

    The box that beer comes in is a good fire starter.

    But it also makes an excellent jousting helmet. I'd hate to be stuck in a survival situation trying to decide between having a fire and drunken broomstick jousting.....

    If you can't have drunken broomstick jousting... can you really call it 'surviving'? Would you even want to ?

    OR..you could just use a little bit of the rubbing/isopropyl alcohol works wonder. If you've got a First Aid kit packed up, you should have some in there.
    That stuff will set water on fire. [technically, float on the top of water, melted snow, a hunk of ice, etc].

    Nice thing about Vaseline and cotton balls (or pads) is that they also provide a backup first aid treatment for burns and scrapes, chapped lips, friction spots, and things like that.
