    I need to learn more about these. Things like...how to use them in winter, using them hours on end for roasts and such, principles behind them, etc.

    You need to buy a solar oven cookbook. My sister in Maine just bought a great book on making bread and sent me one too, here is a link:

    Completed two bucket water filter project. Reviewed the filters and purifiers on hand and bought lithium batteries for the steripens.

    Continued shedding possessions. Had a client come and haul away stuff for sale at shows. (A significant part of preparations is getting rid of stuff that no longer works or is not needed).

    Bought:

    Two bags of betadine wipes
    Two wound management kits
    Two QuikClot Blood Clotting Sponge (50 gram)
    One Black Diamond Orbit LED Lantern (10-45 lumen)
    One Sawyer "1 million gallon" gravity water filter

    Used my 20% off members coupon @ REI so the water filter was only $80.

  7. I got a Colt LE6920CA.

    That should keep the zombies at bay for a while.

    You're funny.


    In an illogical, "let's ignore history in favor of regurgitated platitudes" kind of way; but funny. :wavey:

    Nice week! :thumbsup:



    Started my week this afternoon by giving basic semi-auto defensive pistol & knife training to my niece..a RN.

    Was very pleased with her weapons handling, presentation & marksmanship with the G19! :supergrin:

    Presented her with a Benchmade/HK Vex for EDC!


    Considering replacing/supplementing the G19s with a couple of CZ P07 Duty (threaded version) as primary suppressed platform

    http://www.cz-usa.com/products/view/cz-p07-duty/







    Got a chance to T&E + run a belt thru a new Shrike on Friday..

    ..lots of fun & very nice for the price!

    LG1- You fired it?!?! Holy crap! I didn't even think they brought them to market yet. How much was it?

    Thanks

    IIRC, the WTC was a smoking twisted pile of rubble when the deposit was made on this new concept! It has been a LOOONG wait!




    The price was lower for those very early adopters & is confidential!
     
  13. ordered a shockwave tech. raptor grip for my shotgun - it shipped today.
    got 100 rounds for my glock 35. still need to get dies and components to reload for 40.

    applied for a different job that is in line with my current degree - i'm in my senior year of college now. should make prepping a bit easier again and make up for my wife losing her job this last week.

    forgot to add:
    went to land between the lakes for a hike with my GHB. did 10 miles in hilly terrain in 3 hours. decided that at 25lbs, my GHB is a bit much for a GHB and not enough for a BOB. time to rethink some stuff. wanted to test out a new filter and cook on my pocket stove but the trails i chose werent as close to the water as i thought, and i decided a hot lunch was a waste while hot in the sun anyway.
    i do plan to make an overnight trip in the next month if i can. will test a bit more and be able to spend some more time out in the woods.

    Those seem very interesting.

    Living in the cloudy pacific NW, I'd prefer a 15w version as I probably would only get ~50% efficiency out of it 3/4 of the year.

    I was reading how a different technology, the sort used in the PowerFilm charger (copper induim gallium selenide? amorphous? CIGS panel?), was superior for overcast/low light. The GZ item I bought (monocrystalline) is best for bright, direct sun.

    You can't deny the PowerFilm's coolness factor, rollable and all.
