    Leave no trace doesn't apply to putting out a booby trap to throw zombies off my trail. You'd never know it was there.

    That sounds like a stellar adventure.

    Yikes, been awhile since I posted anything. Life's been busy, and so have I. Always training, always prepping.

    The past week: Hiked the Grand Canyon south rim, in the snow and ice. Tracked some mule deer. Crampons would have made it easier/safer. Hiked the desert at lower elevation. Hot and dry. Worked on plant ID, land nav and finding small holes of water.

    Worked out 3 times: weights, running, heavy bag, stairs etc.

    Hit the range: Worked w G19, J frame and AK. Decent session.

    Most know I moved to a new house. Looking at my fire extinguishers, all are 16+ (youngest) years old. All indicate a full charge. I annually check then the 1st of the year. I have never recharged them. I can rememember my parents doing this, but I never had...is the technology better, am I lucky, or run man run!?

    I was told by the company that serviced ours at the factory to flip them over and smack them a couple times with a rubber hammer.

    Unless you are talking about CO2 or water extinguishers.

    As far as life span, I know places will rotate them out once to a certain age. I figured it was like the best by dates on canned goods tho. Gauge reads good on all of mine still.

    Guess I will wait for a knowledgeable person to chime in tho.

    Picked up a couple of backpacks at Goodwill to use as new go bags for the kids.
    If I had a gun for every ace I have drawn, I could arm a town the size of Abilene.

    The terrorists are getting big enough to have personal go bags. Good thinking. Now the search begins.

    Fire extinguishers are one of those things that I put in the same category as a sump pump. There's a time and a place to run something till the wheels fall off, and then there's a time and place to thank your lucky stars that you got however many good years of service out of something and replace it before it's too late. I definitely agree for the most part they don't build anything like they used to, and I'm not saying to throw those old gems away, but maybe adding a fresh new one every decade or so isn't the worst use of $50 we ever had.


    On the bag ideas for little kids, I've been a really big fan of the "packable backpacks" for my munckins and even for my own day hike use. They generally weigh less than a pound, and durable enough for what most people are going to actually use them for and they're pretty cheap.
    Check these out:
    We used this is a day pack when we took the kids to disney. Water bottles, snacks, diapers, battery backup for phones etc and this pack was perfect for it. It's a good size for a kid/small person.

    This is probably my favorite packable backpack, but it may be a little long for a kid/small person. This pack is less than one pound, holds 40L of stuff, has a hip belt with pouches. I liked my first one so much I lent it to family and when they couldn't find it I bought a second. Of course as soon as I bought a second, they found it and now I have two. 40L is a lot of space, and it's held up well to some solid use.

    In addition to these I have a maxpedition rolly polly backpack, but it's not very comfortable at all. I do use it but more to for rugged utility duty. If I'm going to put pointy sticks or something similar into a bag or need something where I'm excited to trade comfort for durability then I grab this beater. By far the most durable and least comfortable. I couldn't find a link to one, but I paid $35 for it a couple years back.
