- Ha! Yep. Nice shelter. Crazy goat. Fortunately, I have raised sheep, so
I knew that as soon as he reared I needed to push (kick) him backwards.
I hate a ram that thinks he owns the world - they can hurt if they get
forward momentum! He gave up after two tries. Was the goat there all
summer? I was there in June of (probably) 2004.

- Yep, a copious amount of clean water used to flush a wound (at
pressure if possible) is really all you need. some studies suggest
it's even potentially more destructive to the injured tissue to use
peroxide or other anit-bacterial cleaning agents.
Huh, good old mother nature provided H2O, how about that.
Another thing I find really interesting is that according to the
rescue peeps I've talked to most rescues occur within a 72 hour
period. That has changed the way I look at my "survival" kit.

clorox as a water treatment is that I remember reading in one of the
outdoor magazines or survival shows that overdosing iodine can be
potentially deadly where as the clorox has a bit more of a higher
fudge factor. another thing I thought of is that since I carry the
alcohol couldn't I dilute a bit of the gel in a bit of water and come
up with an applicalble antiseptic if needed? For the most part I guess
I always figured that I would just use my treated water as a flush if
I needed one.
