Big Day

Today my number one hiking buddy starts Kindergarten. In about 90 minutes she'll climb on that school bus and head off to start a 17-year (at least) adventure. How'd five years fly by so quickly?

No time to be overly sentimental. She's growing up.

In addition, I wanted to share a few links with you that I've found on the Internet recently:

Doug Ritter's Blog--Doug is the Equipped to Survive guy and he writes about equipment, skills, and articles from a more survival-based view than I do. He's also got sections on his website about building kits from EDC to 72-hours and beyond.

Neanderpundit's article on knives--a good read that brought back a lot of memories. I was probably 10 and I still have that first knife. My first bad cut came from the large blade snapping shut on my right index finger. Ouch.

Thanks for reading,
