Added some additional programming cables for HT's, and nagoya telescopic antennas, awesome little antennas, installed on on a 2w HT, was able to hit repeater 20+ miles away no problem...

Like the way is compacts down, very well built and functional...

I bought a new GHB. My old American Eagle of 27 years finally gave out. So now I have 5.11 Tactical called a Rush12. Its about the same size that my Am Eagle was. No belt so I went down to the mil Surplus and bought one to match the color. It's covered with the molle stuff that I don't need. Lots of pockets - I'm use to two. I just finished spraying it with Scotchgard. I'll put it thru the paces and see how it holds up.

Got two EZ-Pour spouts for my 5 gallon, plastic, gas cans. These are much easier to use than the government approved spouts.

I went with two Scepter Spout Kits, because they fit Ameri-Cans, which I have the most of. Hope these work! If so I'll grab some more. Thanks for mentioning, it made me realize I needed these.

Vintage heavyweight brass flintlock (looking) pistol lighter
Well made in Japan probably in the late 50's or early 60's
Pull trigger, hammer cocks back, spark wheel turns & lights wick.
Release trigger, hammer drops back down over the wick.

Very functional (for what it is).
Going to refurbish (better wire reinforced longer wick, etc) & mount next to the BOL woodstove, for igniting tinder.

A recent heavy rain brought water into the basement, I suspect a high water table during wet years, this happens every few years - thankfully not a frequently reoccurring thing. This was enough to remind me to set things up a bit better for future events. Nothing was damaged this last time, but the setup down there can be better. Have been going through things, donating items not used in eons, making more room. Have been wiping down everything that has a layer of dust. Putting in heavy duty shelving with locking wheels along the wall, easier to move to mop and wet vac. Going to add a row of shelves in front of those, will use these for items in nondescript containers and totes and the back row for items easily identifiable. Should make it a bit less interesting when contractors, utility meter readers have to access the area. I also have a number of old sheets I intentend to sew "dust covers" to slip over the shelving units to keep a bit of the maintenance down and more obscured contents.

Spent 2 hours in basement sorting and moving cases of canned goods to organize in new metal shelving. Arranging by expire date with all green beans together etc. Still have about 15 cases to go but in time will get done. This does not include the home canned foods yet. I have about 8 other shelving units to organize At 78 I work slow but cheap.

Pulled my flight jacket out of mothballs and grabbed a ski mask from the winter gear. Never know... May have to sneak through enemy Antifa lines to escape.

My adult son called me early this morning & said a business near his shop went broke, was evicted & they had a bunch of big like new large heavy duty locking lateral file cabinets that had to be out of the building today.

Price $25 each if he took them all & there were 10 of them ($250 total). These things cost around $500 bucks each brand new .

I told him they would be "perfect" as personal gear, clothing, ammo/sidearm, etc., storage lockers in the BOL bunkhouse & DO THE DEAL.

Rounded up an able bodied helper, took 2 P/U trucks & went and got them.
Decided to keep one at home & will transport the other 9 to the BOL ASAP

Started the well-house rebuild project at the property. I'm not much of a carpenter. Hope to get it finished this weekend.

Vintage (NIB unused) HUGE Zippo (type) lighter for in the BOL cookhouse to light tinder/kindling in the wood burning cook stove. LOL, pretty hard to misplace a lighter this size.

This is what I came up with. Effective, durable & inexpensive

I'll be adding that to my kits too.

I got to test out my car FAK yesterday. A biker took a low speed spill and got a few good cuts. Another motorist was helping him right the hog while I got my kit out. Took 10 minutes to get him patched up and back on the road.
