Re: Homemade Instant Oatmeal

Thread resurrection: Anyone have any idea how well do these keep? Shelf life? We've never had a problem and I know we've eaten some that were in the pantry for well over a year. i would guess the oats will keep pretty much indefinitely, if you add stuff it probably varies according to what it is / ...

I have a blue light made by Streamlight I got years ago - it looks like the one i have isn't made anymore, but they have this one.

Re: Sugar...how do I reduce my intake?

I'm not a big juice drinker, but my wife is. She buys the concentrate and uses 50% more water than the instructions call for (i.e., if the can says to mix with one quart of water, she uses a quart and a half). Lasts longer that way too.

Hey all - Midway is having a pretty good sale on the Aimpoint 9000L - I've been shopping for an optic for my flattop AR, and this caught my interest. I know this is one of their "hunting"-style scopes, but would there be any major disadvantage to using this optic on an AR? I did a little research, a...

Re: Career choices for an outdoorsman?

The problem with the marine biology/wildlife biologist/environmental biologist route is that there are VERY few "hands on" jobs available. Most of the jobs are teaching jobs or "be a lackey to a REAL biologist for $9.00 an hour". Honestly, I'd say Forestry is your best bet. There are plenty of priva...

Camouflage: How to hide an aircraft factory

"During World War II the Army Corps of Engineers needed to hide the Lockheed Burbank Aircraft Plant to protect it from a Japanese air attack. They covered it with camouflage netting and trompe l’oeil to make it look like a rural subdivision from the air."

Just an FYI, mink oil will soften leather - not that this is a bad thing (I love mink oil for bringing back old, mistreated leather jackets), but I've heard of people using it on holsters or gunbelts, then they wonder why the item loses its stiffness or stretches.
