Strange tool

We found this at a campsite.

Our last hurrah camping trip was this past weekend. (It was far too cold, Heather and I both woke up with aching bodies — but Jay had fun celebrating his seventeenth birthday with some of his buddies in the mountains.)

So what might this be? A dental tool for backpacking oral surgeons?

And as you might have guessed, this went straight into our bin where we collect stuff to give to the charity shop.

  1. Hard to tell from the photo, but the bright bit at the end of the tool is a mirror, John.

    Shane, you may be right — though it would take a miracle for anyone “down below” to see any reflection from that tiny mirror. My guess is that it’s one of those things backpacking books say you need — but that “need” is completely untrue.
