I found out recently, I looked at the city statute, which states, “No overnight camping or sleeping in vehicles on public roadways is permitted…” That sleeping in a vehicle within city limits is prohibited, as a blanket rule, is absurd!
A while back, I reviewed a high quality hollow handled survival knife… Kizlyar Supreme’s Survivalist X. In the video accompanying the article, I went into some depth concerning the MOLLE panel on the front of its sheath, which I added a 50? hank of paracord to. I have since replaced the paracord with Kizlyar Supreme’s MOLLE Survival Kit SMP1… it attaches to a belt or anything MOLLE-compatible.
After having reviewed Kizlyar Supreme’s Survivalist X in the D2 tool steel, I chose to review another of Kizlyar Supreme’s knives… the Urban! The Urban is small full tang knife with a 3.5” blade. It is available in D2 or AUS8, both good choices for different applications/environments.
A while back, I wrote an article based on a video I made taking a nostalgic look at “The Survivor”… the cheapo hollow handled survival knife inspired by the film First Blood. After making fun of that piece of crap knife that so many of us naive 10 year old “survivalists” got from Santa Claus in the early 1980’s… I went on to recommend a few that my research revealed as viable survival knives.
Hollow handled survival knives appeal to minimalist survivalists who like a complete survival kit in one item… and to those who like essential survival item redundancy.
Hollywood and its depictions of what is practical in the real world are more often than not… waaaay off. But when when it comes to what size knife Rambo thinks makes a good survival knife… Hollywood got it right… bigger is better! Sorry MacGyver, but that Swiss Army knife is not enough for the real world, you’ll need a big knife as well.
TV show survivalists pay close attention. This is the story of a man who loved the wilderness so much that he built his own cabin with only hand tools. His craftsmanship is remarkable… and he filmed the entire process! What is even more remarkable is that after he built his cabin, he lived in it… alone in the wilderness for over 30 years! Richard Proenneke’s life and legacy are one of the greatest examples of the American spirit of independence and self-reliance we have to learn from.
