More stuff, and promised pictures

Links: Maxpedition makes some cool bags. Not sure if I'll get any, because Sportsman's Guide has a pile of cheap stuff (as always), but hey, seems like a decent company to plug.

The community seems interesting.

Other stuff: So, Liz doesn't seem to have a problem with the survivalist stuff. This is good. It means I don't have to feel guilty or hide anything from her, and she'll keep me in line if I get a little too nutty. For example: I realize that I don't NEED an East German AK-47 bayonet. This is not a survival thing, but merely a toy. I don't need a WWI trench knife either, it's just badass.

However, I realize that these things are silly. Bouncing ideas off of Liz, however, makes me realize that the ones that I think are good ideas might be silly.

I dug out my compass today. Why do I have one? Because everyone should. Why did I dig it out? Well, we're talking about going hiking in the woods. Noting the bearing which you head out makes it easier to get back.

We've also talked about maybe getting some lightweight aluminum snowshoes. I found some cheap ones for less than $75. Might do that. Not sure. We'll have to see.
