Quote: " The apocalypse is coming, do you have the right tools? No I’m not some doomsayer or conspiracy nut but it’s good to be prepared for everything I think. I always tell my kids you need the right tool for the job, whether it’s removing a screw or bolt or cutting of a zombies head, you need to have the right tool for the job. One tool is good, but I prefer multi-tools, or tools that do can more than one thing or those that can cut down on your carry weight. If you’re going camping, hiking or hunting you want to be as light as possible and that’s where multi-tools come in handy. Who would want to carry an axe, a saw and a shovel when you can carry one thing that does all three, or one thing that does those three and more!?

To day for review I have the SportsTek Xplorer 10 in 1 Tactical Shovel and it’s more simple that it sounds really, it’s a multi-tool that can come in handy in many situations. The Xplorer is a shovel at its heart but it’s meant to be portable and can fold up for storage and travel for hiking and camping. The Xplorer is very well made, the handle is a hollow tube that can be used for storage while the shovel part is also an axe and a saw, but it can do so much more. Read on…"

Snow… gack


So we people here in Pittsburgh got hammered with snow. In one day we got over 21 inches of snow. My power went out from 9am Saturday until 2:30am Sunday.. No Power of course equals no heat, no fun at all. I’m thinking I need to buy a generator, not to power the house, but at least to power the furnace for such occasions…

And the best part about all of this is that someone stole my snow shovel…. and no one has any for sale.. I’ve spent hours digging my way out with a little flat shovel… grrrrr.. I hate people sometimes..
