Contest coming in April!

Hey guys. Sorry for the light content this week; things will be back in full swing this next week. But, not to disappoint, I wanted to give you something exciting to wrap up your week--a contest announcement! Woohoo!

Next month, we're going to be running our 3rd Photo Contest, and this time we want to see your pocket survival kits! I'm a pocket survival kit nerd, and I'm curious to see what's out there. I think we're going to restrict sizing to altoid tins or similar, to keep the playing field level.

Full rules and details will be coming, and we're finalizing the lineup of prizes over the next week or so. Randy Church is hammerin' on some custom pocket survival kit tools in his forge. Dr. Bones & Nurse Amy have provided us with a copy of The Doom and Bloom Survival Medicine Handbook. We've got a gift certificate from the folks at Paladin Press. I'm going to gather some books from the T-Blog Survival Library. And we're pulling together some other great stuff from friends of TEOTWAWKI Blog...there's going to be some great, unique stuff in the prize mix, that's for sure!

If you don't have a pocket survival kit, put one together! I'm tentatively planning on opening things up for submission a week from today, if we can get everything finalized at that point.

Full rules and details to come next week!

  1. Ouch! Biggest problem I have with this is UN-packing my little kit for photos and then repacking it! When I built it, it took 2 weeks in my pocket to stay closed!

    3. This was exactly my main issue! I just finished getting everything all back in there, but still feel that it wasn't exactly how it was before I unpacked it. Oh well, everything is back in and I managed to get the lid closed. lol

  3. Great contest Alex! Really can't wait to see the entries after seeing all the great knife collections last go round.

    Maybe 2 categories? Altoid sized and cargo pocket sized. The cargo pocket sized otter box has become my ultimate pocket kit.

    1. Randy my dumb phone just went dead and I had the joy of going into Verizon and asking for a replacement basic phone, I may as well have asked for an abacus...I was told that in 2 years when I renew my contract that basic service would no longer be available. I'm still not paying data rates till I absolutely must as I have wi-fi access almost everywhere and the Ipod touch keeps me up to date with the latest apps....sorry off topic ramble!

  5. The Otter box 2000 is the size I mentioned, but they also have an Altoids tin size, the 1000 model. They are very tough and waterproof.

  6. I did not know there was a bigger tin for altoids, the one I have is only about three and a half by two and a half or something like that and it holds a lot of stuff. don't know how many altoids it holds though...

  7. Neat! I've been working on an extensive list of everything that I've ever read that's been included in an Altoids tin (EDC/Survival related). My EDC is always changing but I'm starting to get an idea of what I must always have on my person, and trying to keep it at a minimal via Altoids tin is great (especially for girl pockets...)
