    "Experienced" posters/posts didn't have that advantage....they had books magazines, fathers, grandfathers, neighbor., jobs military...and friends that actually went "Out on adventures"

    These posting are mostly past experiences, or first hand knowledge....and yeah, maybe 'enhanced" a bit over time....but mostly dead on.
    Those the do...will get that right off.

    The "reviews" back then were not a "You tube"....."I just bought this gonna review it, so....First we open the package"

    THe experienced.... in the past reviewed their stuff but what they could find, borrow, get for Christmas, use Dad's....whatever.

    All that is leading up to the hobby of "Let's sort the BS from reality" of these discussions.......even that gets boring as it doesn't take long to tell who been there and done that...and who in full of it.
    I does not take long to tell the difference.
    I post from experience, film reality from actual outings.. nothing is pre-planned (except for my kit I take )
    I grew up going to my grandfathers farm, learning to shoot and making and building stuff on the farm, did cubs and scouts..
    and now 3+ years survival..\
    I have a very small bunch of mates that also do survival.
    I dont see a point in doing any reviews... most the stuff available here is not the Same as overseas market, its mostly gifts or what I can afford.
    If I dont know about something I dont add to the conversation.

    I still trip out on just the concept of an unboxing video. Of anything. A video of someone unboxing something. Just way too exciting.

    I had to google that. (deleted now? Behind The Green Door?)

    Would still not care though to watch a vid of someone unboxing it. Watching the thing myself, maybe, but unboxing? The existence of unboxing vids is surely a chapter in a book somewhere on sociology or civilization...as an indication that we've really gone off the rails. Aliens in the future will be saying "and this is the stage when unboxing videos appeared; It was a dark omen for the human race indeed."

    They will visit every dwelling, and find a porcelain altar, and assume we were worshiping there.......

    Or a society of deep thinkers since there are probably a lot of magazine racks next to the porcelain alters.....we read a lot.

    O.o

    What, Hunter? Does it show excerpts?
    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.
