my experiance of living in deserts for a few weeks up mountains suggests that athletes foot/trench foor etc is probably the least of your problems

I'd be concerned that the first aiders intend on using tar and leeches to remedy any injury or illness.
Your choice - boiling tar or 14 hungry leeches applied to your genitals.

(Naturally I, as one of said first aiders, will
a)keep my cock clean
and b)apply neither of the above to myself, as RM will clearly need it all after living in a bag for 1 month

Don't use wet wipes; use the liquid/gel hygiene stuff which cleans your hands instantly - you can possibly use it on your third leg if you must.

Should be available from outdoor pursuits/bushcraft suppliers - or from your Tesco chemist dept


Not sure about this chris - we had it in the pit toilets in alaska last year - I wondered why after a week my hands were becoming red/dry/cracked. I realised eventually that the stuff in the loo was basically 98% alcohol in a gel form - hence the dry and cracked skin. No way Im putting that stuff near my knob.

Still - knowing SUSS - they'd have drunk the stuff after the first few days.  :lol:

Yer, and it sounds pretty expensive. Much better just using the cheap homegown raki. Probably similar in percentage n all!  :twisted:

The version I've got claims to be 90% ethanol. I'm surprised they let you take it on planes.

alcohol gell was invented for lazy people who couldn't be bothered to wash their hands. Its not good for your skin if you use it often.
