    I'm a huge fan of your videos, especially when you bring in your buddy, Dr Joe. Always entertaining and informative. The link that you provide for when we're ready to buy gear, is that your amazon store? Because I'll be picking up the Becker BK-2 with the new sheath and the 5.11 Tactical Rush 72 backpack very soon, along with other gear and I'd like to use your store.

    I laughed when he said "go to Campmor and search 'stuff' "1, because it was funny. 2, I was amazed a person who lives in the Carolinas knew about our little NJ outdoor store.

    Speaking of cargo pants, I seen a cartoon in the newspaper "Frank and Ernest" where one complains that he liked cargo pants but they made him feel like a hardware store (pockets crammed full).

    Would you recommend cargo pants in a survival situation or another option?
