The Chounaird Sewing Kit is back on the market at Patagonia and, with the addition of a spool of fine wire as Clearwater suggested, could accomplish the temporary reattachment of a sole better than duct tape. https://www.patagonia.com/product/expedi

With the very welcome change in the rules, I'll state my personal opinion. Laws against carrying knives simply don't work for any public safety purpose. Even if they did work, I'd be against them. My right to own, use, and carry the knife of my ch

Drug overdose is something I’ve fortunately never had to consider in my travels. I can’t say I would feel comfortable administering narcan or any such thing unless I had the proper training. Even then carrying some just in case seems like overkill.

In my experience (as an ambulance paramedic for many years), the one single hazard that causes more deaths is ......... alcohol! Actually, it is not the sole cause, but is a contributing factor in many many deaths when mixed with a variety of other
