    I only shoot something when I plan to eat it. So if I am not hunting I'd rather deter an animal than kill it.
    When I worked in the Mackenzie River Delta for the GSC when I was in University, there...

    Lots of good opinions here, and it's all personal preference. Many good reasons for both, but whatever makes you comfortable is most important.

    Why do you want to keep the water from freezing for the whole trip? I'd just bring a big cooler filled with ice strapped to the rear bumper and leave it frozen. (I am guessing you are camping...

    As the guys in the OJ offices can testify, I have long wished to see someone do a long Overland journey in a Volvo Station Wagon.

    Totally agree. That's what I use on the Fire Truck as well, a Pelican 1550 set up with pretty much everything I need for 1-2 patients in most situations. You can even slip a spinal collar in a 1550...

    If anyone sees one online, please PM me a link. I think the rules state that we are not supposed to post any firearms for sale links in the actual forums. I've been unsuccessful searching so far.

    I honestly don't fire more than 6 shells a year with any of our hunting rifles. Maybe 3 or 4 shots before a trip to ensure the scope is still properly sighted in and most years 1 moose means 1 bullet...

    Surprisingly, my kids think that is normal. They are used to spending 8-10 hours per day for weeks at a time in a hot smelly noisy 200 tdi defender... They were born into this lifestyle.
