The week that was…

Well, that was another busy week and weekend! NZ's 1st Beard and Moustache Competition, followed by 2 days of crawling in the mud on a Tracking Course.

It’s here. The Nightster.

So, I thought I would get another bike, potentially equally ridiculous for daily riding - a Harley Davidson 1200N Nightster.

Out of hibernation

I have been on a bit of a hiatus recently - call it winter hibernation if you want.

Gear Evaluation

It a fit of knife buying I decided I wanted a big heavy blade and a bigger, even heavier blade. So I went out and got myself a Svord Golok.

Guest post from James Brown: Why should I keep a logbook?

Shooting

Firearms & Marksmanship

Hunting

How does Hunters Element's new Veil Camo system work?

Urban

Gastronomy

I seem to be getting slightly addicted to the cask strength Whiskeys. Arrans 12 Year Old.

People & Places

I realise I am probably behind the eight ball when it comes to Carbon Garage.

Spent the day changing over the handlebars to drag bars and pulling off the sprocket cover.
