      The best wilderness survival gear on the market!

Backyard campers and Rambo wannabe's... go buy a Bear Grylls kit. When you get serious about your wilderness activities... come see my gear. Hikers, mountain bikers, cross country skiers, ATV'ers, off-roaders, and others whose activities carry them far and wide... discriminating outdoorsmen opt for quality gear.

Over time, I've made and/or modified a LOT of gear. The DIY (Do It Yourself) approach serves many purposes. First, you can save a ton of money if you can make/modify gear to serve your purposes. You can also have gear that is unique and possibly better than any on the market. This page was created to post various notes and articles for gear junkies and DIY projects.

Things I've Learned when Making or Modifying Gear:

SPRAY PAINTING TIPS - Most people really do NOT know what they are doing. Here are some tips/tricks I've learned over the years.

SEWING - A skill not normally associated with woodsmen, but really a critical skill to have (both by hand and machine).
