Re: Change of pace in life, have to upgrade EDC habits.

One idea I had for you was connect your paracord bracelet to your key ring or to the leatherman. I have a short paracord thing on my keys and it helps me pull them out of my pocket.

My excuse: I work Tues-Friday evenings and nights, then I work Saturday all day. I then teach Sunday School at church Sunday morning, and have a regular D&D on Monday night.

Re: Basic Carpenter's Tools for the Beginner - A Guide

Also, you need to know the difference between construction carpentry, finish carpentry, and fine woodwork carpentry. People think that working with wood in any form is carpentry, and it is, but there is defiantly a difference in the three and you need to see things in each field with a different min...

Re: CRKT m16 worth the money?

I had one for a while until the pocket clip got bent out of place and I lost it. If the clip used a normal head (ie screws or allen heads) instead of torx, I could have fixed it and might still have it. It sharpened up really well and with a bit of practice I could even close it one handed with the ...

Re: Closest to a PAW situation you've ever been in!

I got stuck at work last week for three hours when a flash flood rose the steams around my area and it wasn't safe to cross. Other than that, there was a microburst that hit my town as a kid and power and stores were out for a few days.

Just because you are being approached don't mean you have to drink the koolaid the first meeting. Maybe meet them, see how they roll. If it doesn't feel right, keep in touch with those friends, and if a SHTF happens, then you at least know other groups you might be able to barter, trade with or work...

Hi guys, I made a video of my 'summer kitchen' that can be used for a prep situation too. I'd appreciate it if you all would take a look.

The 15 gal drums will weight about 100 lbs when filled and can be rolled, kicked, bounced, fall off a truck, etc. They are pretty tough compared to the unmovable 55 gal drums.

Re: Any application for used fire hose?

We use them as rope protection. No idea what the real term is, as that wasn't taught when I learned the trade. Really useful though, you don't have to worry about the rope getting frayed on a cliff, and it should also extend the life of the rope. They are called rope condoms. At least that is what ...
