I don't see 'whistle'.  I wear a small brass policeman's whistle on a bracelet. I've seen it worn on a neck chain. If I am trapped anywhere, just breathing will activate the whistle so folks can find me.  (Also comes in handy ladies, if you are out alone and don't feel safe!)

Two other things:
A good attitude
A sense of humor

You'd be surprised how far these alone can get you!

Attitude is everything ....
You have been telling people that this is the 11th hour.

Now you must go back & tell people  this  is  "The Hour" .

I found an interesting new item,  I've definitely put it on my wish list.  It's a little pricey at $129, available for pre-order only now, but what a neat gadget!  A camp stove, fueled by wood (small sticks), that powers all usb-chargeable devices (converts heat from the fire into usable electricity!), folds up and weighs only about 2 lbs!   http://biolitestove.com/CampStove.html

Saw a video of the bio lite stove wow  very ingenious little thing isn't it now all they need to do is figure out how to put a standard outlet on it
oh geeze !! i think i know or have learned something then i find that what i know is really nothing at all and that what i was taught all my life was a lie so hear i go on a self deprogramming mission to cleanse my mind of all the mess that was crammed in that 10% that i use
