Casey did an update on Oprah last night.  And showed us why you shouldn't invite Brutus to dinner.

I usually don't like these gimmicky survival do-dads, but I do like the concept and inventiveness.

+Brian Fahrlander Sorry to hear that.  

Growing up in NC, country ham is a popular staple food (salt cured ham) and it VERY high in sodium.  I had a friend of mine and his grandfather had multiple strokes over his lifetime and joked that it was country ham that did it.  And he said he didn't regret it one bit.

Got out for a couple of hours (between rain showers) to take a walk and to see if I could grab a few morels.

+Turner Knife & Tool Sorta... I found a good mess of ticks and brought them all home.  As for morels, only 7 big ones.  Have a feeling this week coming up will be pretty good, and our last week.

+Josh Mann I'd hit the woods since you tend to burn up the fish.... you need to give them a chance to repopulate.

And this is why +Jack Mountain Bushcraft School kicks serious butt.  Kudos +Tim Smith!

In Aroostook County, recent war veterans converge on the Jack Mountain wilderness school. Can they find what they’re looking for in the Maine North Woods?

Ted is my absolute favorite YouTuber...

First, he is fun to watch, educational and I love how he composes his videos.  Next, if you have even a remote interest in shooting, airguns and now drones, you will enjoy this.

Anyone here using Slack? We just started today at the office and I can see some potential if folks use it.

Yeah, just may be counter productive if I spend too much time geeking out writing services for it.

Just a Dude from Discovery Channel's Dude You're Screwed. A technology creator and adopter, wilderness survivalist, and a polymath looking for more.
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.
