LOL... "wrapping your lips around the communal water “schlong” and sucking out a
sip of water mixed with some bits and pieces of nachos and churros." Beer shot through my nose, good thing that it was cheap beer.

Awesome... the pic too. Surfing is hard enough as it is, hard to imagine doing it with any form of loadout but leave it to you Frogmen to find a way. I laugh thinking about me trying to surf with my AR strapped to my butt, but hey man, let that froggy flag fly!
I completely agree with you though about how an "enabling" device dedicated to any "art form" can be both liberating and yet restrictive. Like you said, and I paraphrase: If you're new to the sport and want to "get in" then its better that you snag a board(a used one is best for beginners as it allows you to change your mind without a huge financial investment) and get some lessons from a reputable and capable instructor.
You write really well, Eric. All you cats do(including the commentors) really well at conveying what you're thinking and the intent is always clear. I love the site, keep it up!

That is a very neat trick. Thanks for the simple "How-To" there, Paul!

I agree about the French press. Not at all helpful. That's why I like this idea here that you mentioned. The irony here is that I don't drink coffee but my wife and friends all love so I make it when we go out camping. Makes me popular and useful. :-)

Excellent opinion piece, I agree completely. I am guilty however of not practicing for long periods of time. I can see the deterioration everytime too.

Not trying to be contrarian at all but I love using my JetBoil. This looks like it'd be pretty cool too.

Pretty sure that leaded under garments will come into fashion about the time "X-ray" capabilities become common place.

That is an awesome article. It should also be mentioned that perhaps one of the reasons why Lukashenko is not so worried about his firearm-owning constituency, is that those particular folks are most likely pro-Russian, Lukashenko supporters... Just sayin'. :-)

Holy crap. This is it. This is the day when things I thought were too sci-fi actually enter the main stream. Put it this way: x-ray vision is now so much closer than I think anyone could have expected. Ladies; you've been warned. :-)
You know man, there is not a 'silver bullet' board maker to me. Paddle boards are paddle boards, IMHO. The one I have, I purchased second hand. The brand name has long since worn off. I have been looking at this one though: http://www.towerpaddleboards.com/Inflatable-Stand-Up-Paddle-Boards-p/bd-twr-bnc-6.htm
Not trying to influence anybody or endorse any brands, it just caught my eye the other day because the raft patches on mine are looking like they're going to hold me hostage next season! :-)

Holy shit that looks awesome! I wouldn't ever get the clearance that would permit me to carry on a plane but the convenience of being able to throw suits and street clothes into my carry-on rather than have to check a bag? Sheeeeiiiit...

I especially like the inflatable paddle boards as they're obviously lightweight and much easier to transport. Of course, this type is limited in use but I always keep it in my truck during summer in case the urge hits.
Gotta say though Eric, that pic of the cat going out in the snow? Damn that guy is committed... or needs to be.
Absolutely the most useful item ever discussed in TLR. :-)

I bet that if they can source the funds, then Radom could produce a lightweight version that emphasizes a lot on polymers and aluminum (where applicable) there by creating a more reliable action. I think that this is definitely a worthwhile concept and therefore, a very worthwhile venture. Besides, I wouldn't mind dreaming of owning a .308 chambered "PKM".

Never have liked the look, feel or function of bullpups. Only thing that I found novel was the "reduced" profile of the rifle. Nice write up, Bartek. How about a write up on the Radom Beryl? Tak?

Really not a fan of serrated blades though, straight edge is optimal IMHO.

SOG is a super brand in my view as they make a durable, easy-to-hone blade and the cost to the consumer is on par with CRKT and Gerber. $300 knives are great! Emerson, Zero Tolerance and the like have established excellent reputations but for common joes with a few bucks left over after the mortgage and day care, I like SOG, Kershaw and CRKT. Excellent write up and background, thank you!
It actually makes me think of counter-surveillance more than anything else. I don't want to go too far into the dark but I wonder what folks with less-than-admirable qualities will do with that nifty bit of tech. I'd probably make a list of what I would do to counter being surveyed by that device. Corporate espionage is a very real risk in many industries, even mine...
