Gerber Myth Fixed Blade & Folder Initial Review
It’s approximately 4 kilometers to walk into town and to the post office from our location, the walk is spent in eager anticipation of what might come. Most times we are met with disappointment as the mail is really slow getting to this ghost town on the Ugandan border. Today was not so, today I got a package and I knew exactly what it was. GEAR! My heart raced as I opened it and found 2 knives inside.
Journeys in East Africa: Episode 2 “The Gear I Brought”
When I think about gear planning my mind immediately goes to small weekend camping trips or day hikes. I remember some of the fondest memories growing up were with my father when we would go camping. I remember loading up the truck with gear and heading out to the wilderness. I love gear, I’m sort of a gear nut and any of my friends, including my wife would more than agree. Does this mean I know everything about gear? Nope, not even close. My motto is I want something that will work and work for a long time.
Life Is Better In a Hammock
“Life is better in a hammock.” is the motto of Trek Light Gear and I must agree with every word.
My first camping trip was a weekend outing in the winter of 1961. Since it was one of the most miserable times of my life, I remember it well. After just a week in the Boy Scouts, I found myself sitting in the woods cold, dirty, and wet. By the end of that weekend I had a choice to make. I could either give up on the whole concept of outdoor living, or get stubborn and learn how to be comfortable in the wilderness.
31 Days to Survival. A Complete Plan for Emergency Preparedness
I like learning new things. Things that ultimately help me become more self sufficient and independent. Not that I don't love to push the “man work” on to my husband, but there are things I need to be able to do. Like start a fire(Check out an article describing my first failure here), change a tire and tie a functional knot. What if I didn't have my handy-hubby and disaster struck?
Journeys in East Africa: Episode 1
When you think of Africa, especially East Africa many things come to mind. Some people think of Safaris, others the rich history which includes British occupation not long ago. Some think of Teddy Roosevelt and his hunting trips. My whole life I’ve dreamed of Africa. I grew up just like a normal kid, watching Indiana Jones and movies like that, reading “How I found Livingston” a book about David Livingston. Needless to say, my fascination with this continent started early.
