Was camped deep in the Pike National Forest this spring, at the edge of a small frog infested meadow, when this black helicopter landed no further than 100-yards from my camping site. It then proceeded to take off and fly right over my site. The action was repeated at least 25 times throughout the night (lost count) and it didn't stop until around 2:00am.
It happened again this summer in a different location, also in the Pike National Forest, this time there was nowhere to land so they just flew over me numerous times.
While odd, I camp out all the time and see many weird things, so guess this isn't so unusual. Kinda obnoxious though. Enjoy the frogs!
UK: Ok I could not find the 21watt panel but I did find a 30watt panel, https://amzn.to/2YscOpk if you would rather have the 21watt panel I am sure that Renogy will ship to the UK, just use the USA link.
I found this product at Walmart while I was supplying for a recent trip. I was intrigued by its design and decided to give it a try. This UCO Switch Spork is very handy and light and I really like it. In this video, I am lightly comparing it to my Morspel Spork that I got off of Kickstarter. The thing I like about the UCO is the ability to break it down into a smaller footprint in my backpack. Don't get me wrong I still like the Morsel, but there are some advantages to this spork that the Morsel does not have.
Measurements: 7 inches nested, 10.3 inches extended Weighs: 0.9 oz or 27 grams Includes 1 reusable tether, 1 fork, and 1 spoon/knife combination utensil. Made from ultra-durable food grade BPA-free glass-filled nylon. Use the spoon and fork separately or connect them together end to end for extra length. Attachment points and reusable tether work together to affix the spork to a pack or hang it up to dry. Dishwasher and microwave safe

I like to get away at least a few times a year on our wild camping / bushcraft trips. Last years camp was such a great time so I was really looking forward to this years camp.
This year (2018) our bushcraft survival camp is in a new location. All we knew about the new wild camping location were the GPS coordinates. Unlike our previous bushcraft camps, this location had no facilities at all. No water, no toilet, no nothing. I took along my Aquaroll water carrier which can carry 40 litres of fresh water. It is designed in a way so that you can roll the water carrier along, even on rough ground. Other than the Aquaroll (and some filming equipment), our rules are that whatever we’re taking, we’re carrying, so everything else must fit into our backpacks. This already poses a challenge. Last year we had a 4 mile hike too so weight is always a concern when it comes to pack load-out choices.

We had another video in the cue, but recent events pushed this one up. In the USA we are really lucky to have such abundant water, but what if it wasn't there? Have a water plan, here are some of the things we do.
Let's be honest, this summer has been a scorcher. It has kept a lot of us from getting out there and doing things outside. In my quest to find a solution for truck camping in the heat, I came across a couple of fans that might be useful for using with a battery system to keep the air moving in the back of the truck at night. In this video, I discuss several factors that went into my decision to create my current system. I am not an expert on batteries or electrical calculations and have very little experience with both. I think this system will work out pretty well for me. As always, please do more research for your own system.
While testing the Odepro KL52 Plus Flashlight I found it to be very versatile and reliable. No matter what LED module you use the lumen output is quite impressive and powerful. The light output is consistent with no flicker or drop offs through out the run times of the battery. The precision zoom dial makes for a very precise flood or point of light, the zoom is very smooth when adjusting the amount of light you want. Changing the light modules is quick and easy and the threads are nicely machined so there is no rough spots at all, just a buttery smooth thread pattern that you will appreciate. The remote switch has the perfect amount of sensitivity so when you press and hold the button(s) you do not need a lot of pressure to operate, it is very robust and will definitely last a long time. You can feel confident when using this flashlight in the rain or snow since it has a IP68 waterproof rating. If you want a quality hunting flashlight at a great price get the Odepro KL52 Plus Hunting Flashlight!

This is the first in a series of videos featuring the Ouachita Trail. Starting at the Talimena state park and hiking to Deadman's Gap at mile 8. We then jump off the Ouachita Trail and loop back to Talimena State park on a series of other trails. This hike took place in March of 2016 and I have section hiked the trail most of the year. Please stay tuned as more videos' will follow!!
Technically this is not the Ouachita Trail but the continuation of the Boardstand/Old Military Road Loop. We hiked to the 8-mile mark at Deadman's Gap and then took the Boardstand Trail and set up camp for the night. In the morning we continued down the Boardstand Trail and then took the Old Military Road Trail back to Ouachita Trail and finally back to Talimena State Park. This a 22-mile loop and is a great way to kick off your adventure on the Ouachita Trail because you can circle back to your car.
Now I did not find this on Amazon UK and the only one I found on Ebay UK was from the US (New Jersey) but they do ship to the UK, maybe there are other US sellers that will ship to the UK. Here is the link I found on Ebay UK.....
My review of the TFCFL LED Flashlight, it uses 4 18650 rechargeable batteries rated at 3800mAh and yes they are included, you also get a battery charger as well. In this video I do show you how bright it is but just remember it is actually brighter than what the camera shows, for the money I definately think it is worth getting.
In this video I show and test the AUKEY Jump Starter. Not only can you give your vehicle a boost but you can charge two devices at the same time, there is even a built in flashlight to help you boost your car in the dark.
The OUTAD waterproof LED lamp is perfect for hiking, camping hunting or even to have around the house in case of a poweroutage. In this video I give you the specs and place it in water to see if it really is waterproof! You can even use this lamp to charge your phone with the built in 2600mAh battery.
