I was just thinking of this on my last trip. A lightsaber can be used to start fires, cut fire wood, free yourself from an avalanche, build an ice cave, and even fight off bears.Dec 21, 2011 at 12:12 pm #1814700

Your light saber is longer than a grizzly bear's reach, right?Dec 21, 2011 at 12:51 pm #1814708

This can certainly handle the fire starting.
It wouldn't do much to snow or ice, but would probably scare the crap out of bear.Dec 21, 2011 at 12:55 pm #1814709

@davidinkenaiLocale: North Woods. Far North.
So you could forego: axe, saw, Bic lighter, knife, snow shovel, avalanche beacon, and bear spray.
Also, I think, headlamp, hardwarmer, signal mirror, stove, and fuel. And very handy if you're surprised by Imperial Stormtroopers asking for your wilderness permit.
It would also be excellent for MYOG – you could cut aluminum tubing, titanium sheet metal and it would heat seal the edges of nylon fabric very nicely.
But you should go ultralight:Dec 24, 2011 at 12:37 am #1815520
apparently force is strong with this one, who needs real lightsaber :pDec 24, 2011 at 10:33 pm #1815690
Does anyone know someone in North America that can repair one? I dropped mine in the creek last weekend when I was using it as a giant steripen. The shipping costs to a galaxy far, far away is crazy expensive. Thanks.Dec 25, 2011 at 9:13 am #1815731

So on the tauntaun sleeping bags, is that EN tested or just advertising? I heard you get chilly at around -400. I fixed my lightsaber. Turns out I had one of the 16 CR123 batteries in backwards after I took them out to dry it.Dec 29, 2011 at 8:17 pm #1817305

Hahahaha! You guys are killing me! Jack, that picture of Vader at the campfire litterally made me laugh out loud. Not much can do that. ;-) And the one C123 battery out of 16 in backwards also got me. I'm a Star Wars geek, but you guys deserve a medal.Feb 18, 2012 at 4:07 pm #1841359
