This article is by Cameron Green, of Green Academy of Personal Protection (GAPP). In 2003, the northeast of the United States (as well as parts of the midwest and Canada) suffered a severe power outage. Traffic lights were not working so gridlock was rampant…. the subways and other mass transit were not working so peoples […]

As far as I am concerned, this project has been well overdue. Especially in the wakes of both hurricanes Irene and Sandy. With hurricane season just barely upon us, and the loss of power, etc. last year, I thought it was time to prepare a bit for what might be to come. In hindsight, this […]

Well, summer is officially upon us. When it came it came with heat and humidity. With that there are supposed to be severe thunder storms all week here in NJ. I’m getting used to the rain, and am going to start calling New Jersey, “New Seattle” shortly. Heck, I’ve only been camping twice all season, […]

I almost forgot about them. I did. I had a couple of them as a kid, that sadly were misplaced. I’m talking about the Swiss Army Knife. With multi-tools being so popular for various reasons I literally have not given the Swiss Army Knife a look in several years. I have two or three multi-tools. […]
