Cool Page: Pig-Monkey.com

During some insomnia-induced web wandering, I came across the page of a gent by the pseudonym Pig Monkey. Not the most flattering of names to go by, but his page has some good tutorials and tips for the survival minded.

My favorite tutorial is this one, where he turns a US Priority Mail envelope into a stuff sack. Pretty cool--turns out the envelopes are made of Tyvek, a fairly durable, lightweight material that ultralightweight backpackers often use. Basically a free project if you have one of the envelopes kicking around.

Pig Monkey's focus is on backpacking/wilderness survival vs. end of the world survival, but there's still some good stuff and things that I had not seen before. He's got great pictures, too! Thought I would pass this on.
