I go from zero to hangry faster then almost anyone I know, so I've learned the value of keeping protein bars on hand. I tend to lose my self in a project, telling myself that I'll eat after I finish that one last thing that then goes on for two hours, and by that time I need to get something my belly immediately or I won't have the wherewithal to properly cook.
The sawhorse is a familiar sight in on construction sites, or in the bed of a contractor's pickup. There, the use for those banged up concrete and paint encrusted beams is obvious: they're portable workstands, designed to be moved around from task to task and job to job. But at home, they're often forgotten for dedicated surfaces such as benches or worktables. And for good reason: traditional sawhorses, those that were big and sturdy enough to take on real work, take a lot of room to store; valuable space that could be filled work much more exciting things like table saws and drill presses and raw materials to make awesome stuff.
With a bit of technique and pre-planning, it's pretty amazing how much stuff you can actually carry, safely and non-exhaustingly, in a backpack. On the other side of the coin, it's also true that you need almost as much stuff for a single night in the backcountry as you do for a weekend trip. The gear doesn't change much for one night or seven... just add some more food, first aid supplies, and you're off.
Truce is a handmade design company that creates all-weather backpacks and duffels from recycled sailcloth and drysuit nylon (used for cold water SCUBA diving). Each bag is created upon order from the reclaimed sailing and sporting materials, giving each piece a unique look and overall color scheme.
Truce's founder, Luke Mathers, "learned to sew industrial-grade fabrics while repairing sails and making boat covers at North Sails Oregon. He took a shining to experimenting with the loft’s scrap bin, which became his first source of materials for after-hours projects: making messenger bags, tote bags and accessories for friends and family."
If you grew up with a father figure in your life, odds are he had a favorite chair or place to sit. My dad certainly has one, and even my friends growing up knew where to find him in the evenings after work. This man from Instructables.com inherited this homemade rocking chair from his grandfather (who in fact inherited the woven patterns from his mother's chair) and decided to recreate one of his very own.

A few months ago, we bought a huge bag of chia seed and have been adding it to just about everything for a great protein boost. The small seeds pack a big chunk of energy, so mixing up this drink is a great way to keep up with the day minus the over-caffeinated jitters.
