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.
Rothco Military MOLLE Foldable Solar Charger
As technology advances, so does the need for energy to power all of that cool gear. Obviously having some spare batteries handy can make all the difference, but what if we’re talking about a cell phone and or a tablet, things that use rechargeable batteries.

The Kephart Knife by Condor Knife and Tool
I unwittingly was using a Kephart blade for years. My 'go to' blade of choice was a Swiss army knife in one of its many variations but I almost always found the most used tool on the knife for me was the knife blade. The spear point just worked for me with whatever I needed to do. I always wished someone would make a spear point fixed blade for use it the woods.
Rothco Vintage Messenger Bag
Today I'm reviewing the Rothco Vintage Messenger Bag. The first thing I noticed about it was that it was something that had multiple uses. It's called a Messenger Bag and it certainly fits the bill there with its wide, comfortable and sturdy shoulder strap and flap style closure. It also has uses that include day trip bag, school bag, airplane carry on, and even daddy diaper bag. Yes, you read that right. I'm sure it isn't something most Monkey's might think about, but let’s face it, we're at the age where we are having kids and we either a) give up our outdoor hobbies or 2) find a way to include the munchkins, keep them safe and haul all the necessary gear about for you and them. The Rothco Messenger Bag fits that need as well.
