Wow. If I ever go on a long backpacking trip, I'm taking Brian.

A general comment, Brian, is that us non-Marines don't have 1/100th the survival training you do, and it's a lot easier to shell out money for trips we may only take once a year. We'll be doing good to just get our tent up before dark without a strained ankle.

I was wondering, and this is getting a little off topic, what kind of knife do you bring on such a trip? For example, the fish. Do you just gut 'em and eat 'em, or would you fillet and skin them? Also, with the supplies you described, how long could you comfortably go (in other words, no eating bugs)?

And I like your signature. Must be why my life has been harder than it had to be.
