Wazoo Survival Gear Launches Cache Belt On Kickstarter

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

Pretty much everyone wears a belt, so it’s a good platform to integrate survival items. Wazoo Survival Gear gave us a preview of their Cache Belt during OR and now it’s available on Kickstarter. It has a hidden pocket which can be used to carry a wide variety of items as simple as currency or as complex as a SERE kit. Although, the most useful thing for many of us may be the integral bottle opener.

The Cache Belt is available in three comfigurations; Minimlaist, Essentials and Adventure, each packed with additional survival items. Although the Cache Belt was funded within two hours of launching, there are still some Early Bird pricing options to be had.

Please Support The Abel Loredos Medical Fund

Friday, September 16th, 2016

It’s not often that I make a personal appeal but a tragedy befell the family of one of my friends last weekend and they need our help.

Abel is the victim of a senseless hit-and-run road rage attack which resulted in the amputation of his foot.  Fortunately, the attacker is in custody.  While we all can take solace in the great work of the Washington State Patrol and Tacoma Police Department for getting this creep off the street, it isn’t going to heal Abel or take care of his bills.  Those, are up to him and us.  

I have known Abel for many years. He is a Marine Corps Veteran and a former employee of Tactical Tailor. He currently works at Anytime Fitness in Tacoma, WA. If none of that makes a connection, he is also the son of GW Ayers, Vice President of Grey Ghost and GW is one of the most straight up, honest guys in this industry who raised Abel from a tyke to be the man he is today.  I look at GW as a brother from another mother. We both served on the IGB (that’s Inter-German Border for those of you who didn’t have the honor of serving in the Cold War) and I am constantly amazed at GW’s demeanor.  He still conducts himself like a Platoon Sergeant; praise when it’s warranted and a kick in the ass, when it’s not. Fortunately, Abel is a chip off the old block. He’s going to lick this and that’s why we need to help him out. 

One of Abel’s co-workers has created a GoFundMe Page and we encourage everyone to help out if you can.  Our family contributed and we hope you will too.
