|13" Machete for hunting, fishing, wood cutting,|
and taking down zombies...
I went shopping today and I have a new machete. Ironically I got to test the machete today because I am cooking a lamb's leg and had to chop it in half in order for it to fit in our pot. Since it is a full-size lamb leg with thick bone, I put it on our cutting board and with only one simple swipe of my new machete it cut through it like a hot knife does through butter.
Wow! I guess I have my zombie apocalypse weapon.. No ammo required(!??!?!) < evil laugh!!!>
I picked up the machete at the local hunting and fishing store. I also picked up my MSR XGK II stove with the pump. The stove and the pump were being check for faults by an authorised MSR repair centre nearby. I'm really glad I got a check because the jet burner was broken/ very faulty, and they said if I would've turned it on it might have exploded on me. They replace some O-rings on the pump, and gave it a good clean. So even though my XGK stove is about 10 years old, it's now running like new! I have another stove in my van already and it's the MSR Whisperlite Interational. Both of the stoves serve specific purposes for me:
XGK II - is the ultimate mountaineering and cold weather portable stove. It boils 2L water in about 1.5 minutes
Whisperlite International - is a globally recognised reliable stove that is for cooking, boiling and simmering. While I could use it for boiling, I prefer to use my XGK as it is faster. This way I can boil water for coffee or tea using the XGK, while cooking on the other Whisperlite International.
Tomorrow afternoon I get back my van from G Guy Motors with four new shocks, new custom springs, my lower step bumper removed and my newly replaced 400watt LED bar for my bull bar. I'm getting quite excited here!!! Eight days from now,I depart on my 30 day/ 4WD trip to New Zealand's south Island....
