What's new?

      Even insects, display the use of simple stick and stone tools. However, the ability to make and use sophisticated tools, distinguishes humans from the rest of Earth's animal kingdom. It has taken us a long time to get here, so let's make the most of it and acquire worthy tools.

I monitor the quality of my promoted products and continue to seek out proven gear and skill sets. Most of my allocated time is applied to sourcing, researching and testing the material. Roughly once per week, I will add a new tactic, technique, skill, tip or tool. The updates are listed below. Click on the green link to visit the relevant page.
