Learn about getting food and supplement samples from your local shops at NO COST.  I visit health food stores such as GNC, and ask the cashier for freebies, or take items from their basket of product trials.  These individual servings will be stored properly in Ziploc bags, and placed in various emergency preparedness kits, plus my Everyday Carry backpack.  I have saved tons of money using this method of urban scavenging.  You can make your own freebie haul like this with little effort.

Check out the vintage bike frame I was given for FREE.  I’ve always wanted an old school Specialized Rockhopper, so I had to fix it up, and ride.  The bicycle needed some TLC.  I bought new handlebars for $1, rubber grips, a back tube and tire, plus located a matching racing seat and post.  It must be a 1989, or 1990 Specialized, featuring Shimano Deore LX components.  The original matching wheels came with.  

Survival Bros also pressure washed everything, to get the road grim off.  Just had to share the photos with the fans.  I haven’t seen this bike, this nice, anywhere online in my searching.  I sold the restored project for $150.  Funny part was, the buyer showed up in a classic Volkswagen Vanagon like mine, so we had lots to talk about, and share.  This bike was just too small for me, with a 17 inch frame, it’s best suited for a teen.  It went to a good home, and freed up space inside my van.  More cycling projects being blogged about soon.

In this HD video clip I relieve pressure on my foot.  These big blisters were the result of an 18 mile hike on The Ramona Falls Loop and The Pacific Crest Trail.  I should have busted out the Moleskin as soon as it started hurting, but I didn’t think they would develop so quickly, and puff up like this.  If your blisters are huge, there’s nothing wrong with poking into them with a sterile knife or needle.  You can sterilize your tools by cleaning them with alcohol, a lighter, or boiling them in hot water.  It’s also a good idea to soak the wound in Epsom salts for up to 30 minutes.  Plus, apply an antibacterial cream like Neosporin before covering with a bandage.  Clean the area twice daily if possible too.  Prevention is key.  Wear thick socks, and break in your hiking boots long before you hit the trail.
