Joe took a little time to put together a video on how to make Cowboy Coffee while you're out on the trail. Joe spends a lot of time outdoors, so you can bet that he's tried and done everything he shows us in his videos. There were a couple of audio issues, so you may have to crank up your volume just a bit to hear Joe give his lesson, but it's well worth hearing!!
Two different sharpening systems to help maintain that keen edge!
Keeping knives sharp seems to be something of an art form. Some folks are naturally good at it, while others struggle with it. A good sharpening set up helps regardless of your personal skill level. For some folks, that includes a belt sander, leather belts, and buffing wheels. Other folks are more traditional and stick to bench stones and strops.
If you talk to any of my buddies, you’ll soon find out that it’s no secret that I’m a fan of Fenix flashlights. I started using them about 2 year ago at work and I’m up to about six of them now. The one I’d like to focus on today is the Fenix EO1. The EO1 is a very compact AAA light. I was drawn to the EO1 for a number of reasons. First, it’s a very compact light. Well suited to keychain use, attaching to neck cord or other lanyard, or for just dropping in your pocket. Next, it uses a common, readily available battery, unlike many keychain lights. That’s nice if you’re off the beaten path camping somewhere and need to pick up spares at the local gas station or convenience store. It’s also nice to know you can scrounge batteries from your TV remotes and kids toys if you need batteries before heading out on a trip too! The basic on/off operation was a bonus for me too. I know multi-mode lights and strobes are in now but I like to keep things simple. Lastly, I was familiar with Fenix’s AA lights and had been suitably impressed with those to want to try out one of their smaller models. Let’s take a quick look at the factory specs on the EO1:
As mentioned previously, we will be traveling to the 2009 SHOT Show in Orlando, Florida in January. SHOT stands for Shooting Hunting Outdoors Trade Show. This is where the big boys play when it comes to outdoors gear. It's one of the largest trade shows held in the world and we'll be there providing coverage not only on a daily basis, but throughout each day as well. As you can see at the top of our main menu, we have a tab that will take you to our dedicated SHOT page where we will post information for you about the event. We are setting up the page now to bring you early news and to test out a couple of methods we're going to use to fill up the page. Not only will we be posting a recap at the end of each day with articles and other content, we will also be posting quick feeds from the floor as we get the news. Those quick feeds will be delivered in the box on the right hand side of our SHOT Show page and they will be updated throughout the day as we find things that are newsworthy.
Every year as the seasons change and the weather goes from cold to hot, and hot to cold, my mind wanders to thoughts of exposure, and the needless deaths and injuries that come from it. Many people every year are treated for exposure related sickness and injury, most of which could have been avoided with preventative measures. One of the most important considerations when venturing into the outdoors is minimizing your risk of exposure. Understanding how the body thermoregulates itself is key in preventing these injuries before they happen.
