The other day, on Twitter/Facebook I saw this “Retweet/Like” us and you can win thing. Great. Is it a iPad? Nope, it’s from this online magazine called Benosh. They are giving away some Bear Grylls stuff from Gerber. Right, so I know two out of Three. I quickly like/RT/Follow as directed. No harm.
I start in looking at Benosh’s website and it’s pretty good with the outdoor reviews. While I am not a gear junkie for all the things written up there, I do appreciate Gerber, Keens, Osprey and other items that I would use. What I do like is some of the articles. Did you know that JUNE is GET OUT DOORS MONTH? I didn’t until I read that article.
So, while I was reading all this, the next day or so, I realized that I had won! Whoo hoo! This is now my fourth time winning something off the Internet. First, it was a Cubscout t-Shirt from Classb.com, then a mini-shovel from The Bechtel Summit and then a Gift Card via PTCMEDIA to get a Scouting book that I picked out with it. Pretty sweet!
Now, the thing that I like about this, besides the great knife, is how the kit is laid out.
While it’s not the 10 essentials, it’s a great kit to have. It will be with my 10 essentials and any day hike that I go on. What I really like about the packaging is that on the back of the bag, there is a communication item that shows how to communicate with searchers from above. Very simple and effective.
So, well done on the designing of this kit. I have a similar knife from Gerber already, but this one is nice and lightweight. While my son is soon to be a Webelos I, he will get this someday. It will be tucked away in my kit as well.
Overall, a great magazine, knife and Ultimate Survival Kit. I did not think that I would get both, so I am very happy. The person who I took my info via email sent a great note too! The box came from Jackson, Wy. A place that I really like. I spent a summer in the Teton National Park and two others in Yellowstone National Park and I wen to Jackson a lot. A wonderful place to go spent time in.
