Emergency Supplies

As you drift to sleep, you feel a bit lightheaded as a wave of movement shoots across the bed. Your body stiffens, trying to see if you had just imagined the tremor. Nothing. As you try to relax back to falling asleep, another tremor sweeps across the room, stronger this time. It shakes your dresser,...

Resqme Car Escape Tool

Another tool in your toolbox. That’s more of a figurative saying than literal in most cases. If you decide to pick up a Resqme Keychain Car Escape Tool then that will certainly be the case.  The creators of said tool call it a “Must-Have for all motorists.” Clearly they want to sell as many as they...

heat those sheets

A while back I admitted to being on a “survival kick” as I was posting up a lot of camping, prepping and survival gear. Since then it’s been more of a gradual constant and the need to be prepared and plan ahead is also constant. I’m not predicting any crazy apocalypse and I’m starting to...

smell ya later

A little humor to start off an otherwise serious and potentially stinky subject – personal hygiene. Even with modern conveniences, some folks tend to have questionable hygiene practices. Do you shower everyday? Before bed or when you wake up? I’d like to think I know when I stink but you know what they say, you...

So I went to the list I mentioned yesterday. Couldn’t help it. Limited time today and a strong urge for a nap are both nagging at me. This is more of an intro of the brand with a little sample of a product (maybe two) that fall sunder their net of products. I use the...

not for turkey

This entry was posted in Camping Gear, Knives, Survival Gear and tagged on by . Comments Closed
Caught some brief chatter from a History Channel program recently regarding the first settlers and documentation of the first Thanksgiving. Evidently there’s really no evidence indicating the turkey was even served. Still, it remains a staple of the holiday and I must admit there’s on in our fridge right now. My previous turkey carving observation...

novel or novelty?

This entry was posted in Knives, Survival Gear and tagged , on by . Comments Closed
I’m leaning towards the latter but it will ultimately be up to you to decide. At the very least, the product that is the topic for today’s post would make a rather unique gift idea that won’t break the bank. The Dog Tag Survival Knife is a multi-functional tool perfect for the outdoor enthusiast. You...

Here we are at Monday again. Had to be at work earlier than usual Friday so that day’s post was written on Thursday. As such it feels like I’ve been away from the blog for a while. With an everyday, no days off sort of schedule Monday isn’t all that big a deal. Still it...

I don’t imagine MaxP is an official or preferred way to refer to the Maxpedition brand but when you’re writing about their gear, typing Maxpedition over and over becomes a task of its own. The first step is adding it to the “Dictionary” of whatever program you’re using so you’ll actually know when you’ve spelled...

mean, green canteen

Olive Green or OD Green. Ok got it. But how is it mean? Well it isn’t scary or intimidating unless you’re a microscopic virus or bacteria floating around in some water. That’s when it gets mean. When you’re travelling in areas where water quality is suspect, the unique, NDuR 38oz Pull Top Canteen water filtration bottle makes...
