  • What items/skills do you have 'double uses' for?

    I like multipurpose skills and items. For example, an obvious one would be:
    Heating water on a woodstove, or a hot water tank in the chimney (forgot what that is called). Warmth AND hot water.

    Other uses:
    Using Solar yard lights to recharge AA batteries

    Saving shower or bath water to flush a toilet or wash clothes

    Using a compost bin to produce heat (it can get up to 140 degrees!)



    THats just a few..

      This is a hard one........

      I have a ram pump that can pump water up the hill and then flow back in to the stream above the pump. Does this count? :p

        Camelbak Hydration Bladder, use as a pillow, flotation device, air splint, shower bag...

        Bandana, use as a sweat rag, a sponge to gather water from a hole you can't get a cup in or collect dew from the ground for drinking water, sun shield to protect exposed skin, torniquet, bandage, sling, to help build a water filter, etc.

        Good post :)

        Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
        beat you to death with it because it is empty.

        The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.

          I wear a tiger striped thong. Provides comfort, can distract an enemy, and can be used as a sling shot.

                  Blacksmithing forge for heat and to cook with (I only use natural hardwood lump charcoal, so it's safe for cooking). Anvil for shaping metal, as well as heating to fry a fillet of meat on. Blacksmith hammer can be used as a counter weight on a spring trap.
