Forgot your sewing kit and need to make an emergency gear repair in the wild?
Look around you. If you’re in Arizona, Texas or somewhere the Agave americana (aka century plant) grows, you’re in luck.
Of course, Leave No Trace principles would tell us not to go around tearing leaves off plants. But in an emergency situation, your survival should be first priority.
If you need to say goodbye to that tear in your tent or hole in your backpack, say hello to the Agave americana plant.
