Some years, I look forward to winter, and all the snow (or maybe just Christmas!). And other times, I find myself seeing winter as being nothing more than a downright depressing time. I mean, the sky is grey and overcast, and the snow is a blinding white while the bitter bite of cold seems never ending and harsh. Therefore, I am stranded inside, unable to explore Nature, unable to find my happy place among the forest as I do through all other seasons. There are just some years that I find myself struggling to keep my head up through the doom and gloom. But this winter, I’ve made a conscious decision to tough out the cold and the snow, and to do my best to fight off that blah feeling.
When it comes to knives, designs can range from kitchen cutlery to zombie apocalypse machetes, and in between those, you will find a wide variety of fixed and folding knives and survivalist blades, yet finding the right one will be as unique as finding one’s own style of clothing. It can take time to find the right fit. But if you are indeed searching for that right blade, it’s important to consider what uses are required of the knife, and what you demand of it.
Do you suffer from motion sickness as I do? I don’t know about how bad it is for other, but motion sickness can really drag down a fun time. I avoid roller coasters and tilt-a-whirls like the plague, and I have to be that guy who insists on sitting in the front passenger seat of any car, because the backseat feels so floaty, especially when driving on back mountain roads, that I can’t even withstand a mere car ride at times. If you know what I mean, then keep reading, because there may be a way to live a better life less affected by the dreaded motion sickness…
Every so often, I have an opportunity to test a new product that is unique, a game changer. And today, I’ve had the immense pleasure of trying out the t402v customizable headphones by the fine folks at Torque Audio. Torque Audio is known for its high quality earbuds, but it is their headphones that I bring to your attention today, and for good reason…
What is the worst thing about camping? Was your answer: the bugs or the bears? the dirt or lack of creature comforts? Or was it the hassle of setting up a tent or starting a fire?
When I first started camping, I felt a little dread or fear for all of those aspects of camping. But once you’ve been outdoors awhile, the bugs and the bears, and the dirt rarely become a second thought. Nor do the creature comforts. Outdoor stores and gear companies have made sure that glamping (glamorous camping) can be a thing, and that all of the perks and creature comforts of modern life at home can be enjoyed in some way or another while in the wilderness. And while I disagree with a lot of the modern gear (power tools, generators, and chainsaws, to name a few) being used in the wild, I believe there are some very cool and exciting inventions coming out that are completely changing how traditional camping has always been.
Victorinox Swiss Army released a new line of fine luggage recently and today, I am going to take a deeper look at the 100% polycarbonate series known as Etherius.
From my experience, Victorinox has been a name atop the mountain of producing some of the world’s best luggage. They may not be the most inexpensive travel option, but the reason being is everything they produce is of high quality, and typically cutting edge. And the Etherius collection is no exception.
