Re: Research Notes

I really like the technical writing style and can see how these "Cicadia" auditory distraction devices could be an interesting addition to a larger story. But for this short vignette, it would have been more interesting if one of the test cases, while generating useful data, ended tragically when o...

Re: Homemade Laundry Detergent and HE machine

The recipe with the borax, fels naptha, and washing soda is designed not to suds. You actually don't need to cook it and mix it with water. I sliced the fels naptha with a wire cheese cutter and put the chunks in a blender where it made tiny fine balls smaller than bb's, mixed it with the other two...

Ruff Wear Approach™ Dog Pack

Regularly $99 from Dick's, on sale for $59.99. When checking out, use coupon code "ent15" to take another 15% off the price, bringing the total to $57.98 shipped (before taxes). This is a great deal, as even the cheapest places online usually sell these for $75+.

I used Federal 325 boxes of match-grade ammo (I'd heard the 550 boxes had the occasional dud), didn't have one FTF/FTE, every round shot beautifully. I ended ...

Re: Non-conventional wisdom: Please add what you know

If man's best friend is part of your family and you keep a first aid kit for them (you should!), make sure you keep a small bag of cornstarch and some Q-tips handy. This can be used to stop small bleeding wounds if you're out on the trail somewhere and they get hurt. I imagine the concept is similar...

I actually like this bag, do you happen to know specifically the name/manufacturer?

edit: nevermind, I think some Google-fu image-search cross-referencing has discovered this is a Mobil Medic Peak Series First Responder bag, is that right?

Nothing wrong w/Maxped at all, I've got a Condor II right now and will be migrating that to the wife's bag in favor of a Vulture II shortly. Had the bag for almost two years now, put it through hell and back and it just asks for more. You'll get your money's worth.

The guys at one of the local shops here are pretty big Stag fans, they once told me that Stag and LMT are owned by the same parent company or their parts are machined in the same parent factory or something to that effect (I never looked into it to verify).
