It would take about seven months to travel this distance in a spaceship. Better be some good in-flight entertainment. In case you're wondering, you'd need about 2000 feature-length movies to occupy that many waking hours. Sit back and relax. Jupiter is more than 3 times as far as we just ...

Here is a video of a training session that EJ Snyder and I did for Eagle Med, LLC last month.  We took air safety crews out for an intense, hands on survival class.

Story
Tagline
A technology creator and adopter, wilderness survivalist, and a polymath looking for more. I was lucky to be a Dude from Discovery Channel's Dude You're Screwed Season 2. Follow along as I have some cool projects in the works.
Introduction
Thanks for stopping by.  Hopefully you will find something interesting here.  We tend to cover a lot of topics ranging from outdoors, technology, BBQ, fine pipe tobaccos, and random shenanigans.  Stick around and have a good time.  

He who sits still in a house all the time may be the greatest vagrant of all, but the Saunterer, in the good sense, is no more vagrant than the meandering river, which is all the while sedulously seeking the shortest course to the sea.  - Thoreau's Walking.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. - So sayeth Robert Heinlein's character Lazarus Long in Time Enough for Love


Bragging rights
I am lucky enough to have been given opportunities in life, and have seized everyone of them. I cannot say I have been successful in each one, but trying is the hardest part. Failure is the greatest teacher.
