Makes you wonder how people got by without all this fancy electronic crap.
There was a report in the Wall Street Journal a while back saying that the average soldier in Afgahn carried 7 lbs of batteries for a 72 hour operation.
I'm no different, I was checking my pack yesterday in preperation for the up coming hunting season.
I have to get extra batteries for my GPS, LRF, Wind Meter, Heck I'm getting as battery crazy as everyone else.
I think I'll toss all that crap and go back to doing things the old fashion way.
