    i think it would be the epic-est roadtrip of a lifetime. my 2006 Toyota Tacoma is still solid and reliable.  i would need a few modifications, but i kinda want to keep it relatively stock. up thru the Yukon Territory and then on the infamous Dempster Highway. if i had a friend with a second...

    man. I?ve been trending towards smaller folding knives. I even started gutting a few animals with folders. They need not be huge. I also wanted something less well known. Off the beaten path so to speak. Thin slicy blades, less than 3? long. I found one that ticks all my buttons (for now...

    Check out my flooded gas station.

    Biblical rains in my area. I?ve been in San Diego all week for work. Worried sick for my wife. All?s well.  But my area took a beating again. First we had a drought so the place burned to a crisp. Now, ? oh you want some rain??  Kaplush!  The heavens opened.

    time to get reaquainted with archery.

    i admit.  the luster of bowhunting tarnished for me.  couple of reason. 1. swapping over to a left hand bow.  granted my left eye is awesome compared to my janky right eye.2. my mtn-bike crash last summer really hurt me badly.  my shoulders and elbows ache constantly.  PT lady said i need to...

    I?m making my brother crazy. :)

    somehow, he got a free all access pass to Shot Show. I keep texting him to check out various booths. He apparently scored me a MR cap. Now he won?t answer my calls. Haha. Anyone ever been? My head would explode!

    My mtn biking helmet saved me!
