12 throwing knives with case for $16+$5 shipping.

No info on the steel type, and I haven't done business with this place before, so caveat emptor.

Greetings from Northern VA. Whereabouts are you located, geographically? You'll get more local responses if you include that.

There are a few new/newer developments in wind turbines that are becoming available and are increasing the efficiency and thus, the viability of wind power.

Re: Buying Land?

Man, I wish I could find some decent land out here without breaking the bank. In Colorado, if you want anything that has water on/near it you pay premium.

Re: sandbags under fire?

If you feel confident of your ability to get all those pesky air bubbles out, the here are a few options for the laminate: DIY ...

Re: Cub scout altoids tin

First, good on ya for getting involved and staying involved!

I'd say forget the paracord, use dental floss. I've found something like a FlossCard fits perfectly into a BOAT.
