Fire Instructor, please share your expertise and give us a list like Herk so we can pick & choose from them both. I would imagine they are both pretty similar and it is always good to get info from all knowledgeable sources. Especially for us "Poor dumb civilians" with no training.

On my last outing I was at a McD's using the free Internet drinking my beloved soda when something on their TV got my attention. The lady said to apply Elmore type glue to the area of the splinter and allow to dry. Then peel the glue off and the splinter will come with it.

Sorry but I didn't have a splinter to put this method to the test.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

There is one item that has not been mentioned yet; it is a tick remover.
Anyone who has ever removed a tick using tweezers knows how hard this is to accomplish while still keeping the tick intact (ie. head still on), it is a real PITA. I forget the brand name of the one I have, but it looks like a miniature hammer claw. One brand that showed up google is 'Ticked Off' ---> TICKED OFF™ the world’s simplest tick remover
