Sure you guys and gals will rip this one.
Anyways, not only will the tin hold your first aid the tin can double as a small pot or you can make char cloth in it. The straw holds antibiotic and the listerine pack holds meds.

That's cool. I never thought about re-using the Listerine packs like that.

The calendar is overkill unless there are maps on the back or you use it for TP.

Just a bunch of old-timers entertaining themselves. A few of us are involved in Scouting and this would a good project. Are you in Scouting as well?

No not at all, just making small kits for day hikes or mountain biking. My son is always getting tore up so we have these small kits everywhere.

You can do the same with the old band-aids tin cans.

Another thing you can put in these tins is fire starting materials.

Matches, sand paper, small flint and steel, small plastic magnifying glass, tender rope, cotton balls, steel wool, small candle etc.

Yep, cotton balls with vasiline work killer for fire starter.

That was back when most of the wounds were created with sharpened stones, right?

Nothing better than a moss poultice.

You can tell someone is old if they know how to spell poultice correctly.

Shit. I meant "poltess".

Leeches and maggots have both been proven to work. Superman's advocation of 'bleeding' not so much.

Leeches are used in surgery in countless hospitals in the U.S. to fight post surgical swelling.

...and maggots just eat the bad stuff and thus avoid or remove gangrene.

There's a leech and a maggot in any lawyer.
