For my ham friends, did you know about this sprint? RaDAR is cool and challenging, but this outdoor sprint event is a little more laid back for those who enjoy the "radioing" more than the moving. Haha. I'm building a new portable station with a QRPGUYS key and may just do a random wire fed directly to the KX1. I plan to operate from a park near my home (I've never been to the park), which, similar to my home, is the highest point in the surrounding counties. I am really looking forward to this event. There is a link in this "Second Saturday Sprint proclamation" for details on getting your sprint number (I am #102).  Good luck. Join the QRP Field Ops community for more info and conversation. 73

I got an email that said if you enter "AdventureOn" as the promo code at checkout, you can save 20%, making this wallet about $12 - Today and tomorrow only.

I've had two of these wallets in the last ten years.  My first lasted about four years, but I was a little more active back then and wore it out.  The current wallet is about five or six years old and still is in great condition.  No "Costanza" wallet for me.  My doctor actually recommended a thin wallet and front-pocket carry years ago.   Mine holds about ten cards, but I could cram a few more in there if I had to do it.   A larger version holds more cards.  This thing doesn't sweat, it's unnoticeable in my front pocket, and there is no compromise - it's just like a leather wallet, just lighter and slimmer (especially since you can't Costanza it).  I carry some ID cards, medical IDs, and a couple credit cards.  It holds some cash when I have cash, but I can go months without carrying folding money.  This is a no-brainer at $12 on sale for this wallet.  Comes in black.  +Allett +Allett Wallets 
Cover your bases. Carry the essentials. The feather light SoftTech Nylon Sport Wallet just might be the most practical wallet ever made. Flat and nearly weightless, this wallet excels in any outdoor application from trail running to kayaking. Don’t be shy, plan on carrying this little buddy on a daily basis.

Look what Angie and Emmye made for me for my birthday.  These are ceramic tiles with "beer carton art" impressed on the tiles in some artsy craftsy way as coasters.  I have now figured out they were buying craft beer for the art work on cartons.  The big coasters work best for those times when you have two or three beers.  You don't have to be so precise in your beer placement.   haha.  Cool, eh?  A nice, appropriate present.  Thanks you guys!

Life is pretty good when your biggest concern of the day is that you only have Irish-style beer to drink with your Mexican-style dinner.  I'll make the best of this situation.

How many of you remember Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom?  That describes my back yard as three Turkey Vultures guard a dead raccoon from a cat.  Another cat was chowing down on it earlier in the morning, but at the time we didn't know what she was doing.  The vultures dragged it into the middle of the yard from the woods.  Ahhh...Nature!

This is Moose Drool, an American brown ale from Big Sky Brewing Company of Missoula, MT.  

My initial impression was disappointment.  If large foam heads and extensive lacing on the glass define a good beer, then Moose Drool falls short.  But, with a pleasant aroma (that good beer smell), a malty taste, and somewhat nutty after taste, I've changed my mind.  I like it.  I am going to enjoy a second.

This is Cutthroat Porter from Odell Brewing Company, Fort Collins, CO. A bit hoppy for a dark beer, but tasty nonetheless. Nice job +Odell Brewing Company
