anybody try the bag of pee to light a fire?
i believe they did it on Dual Survival..?

I may bring an extra baggie with me my next outing...
but with that idea, couldn't you just use a bag of water?? granted if you're in the dessert that does you no good

yes, they did that on dual survival and ran into a problem....

the urine was too dark in color due to dehydration.


Save your pee for cooling off your head :)

No Bear says to Drink your pee, And bear knows best!  I mean the guy is always drinking his pee. 

Bottom of a clear bottle, a filled water bottle, glasses, lots of things can be used to start a fire if you have good direct sun light.  But I still think you should all drink your pee! :D

No me

Wow, that's did he hold on to a block of ice that long?  I suspect he has no cold-sensing nerve endings!!
