Cutlery on the go. – Hale Baby’s Kakalu 3 Piece Stainless Steel Flatware Set.

Standard

utensil-set-4

Working on the road can be tough. Fast food ends up being your daily food intake, for the most part. Even if you prefer fast food, if you order something through the drive thru, half the time they forget your cutlery you need to it. But not only that, even if you take food with you on the road, you will still need cutlery. I, in the past, have lost many a utensil to on the road, food needs. It got to the point, where I said, no more, buy disposable utensils. Disposable utensils are convenient, only if you remember to buy them, lol. They, however, are not eco-friendly, or durable.

A set like this, from Hale Baby is very convenient. But not just for you on the road eaters, but for prepping, camping, road trips, and picnicking, to mention a few. I love how this set includes its’ own zippered storage case. The case is simple, and works perfectly. It is made out of backpack material, and has a zippered closure, which works very well. Also included in the set, which is just a perk, is a nice measuring tape, which is very convenient to own and have. It’s good to keep one in your car. I can’t tell you how many times we have been in a home improvement store, and needed to measure s piece to see if it would work. That, and with the ever changing clothing sizes, it’s good to know a measurement. My mom, last year, went clothes shopping for my bday. She bought me 4 pairs of shorts, and they were all different sizes. Same brand and model too, lol. She took a tape measure, and measured across the waist line. So, it’s very convenient to keep one in your glove compartment.

utensil-set-5

In this set you get 1 zippered case, 1 tape measure tape, 1 teaspoon, 1 fork, and 1 demitasse spoon. They are labeled and made out of stainless steel. And, they are not bendy either. I always do the bendy test. If I can bend it in my hands, then it wouldn’t last at all with my strong guys! So, they would be worthless, then. The teaspoon measures 6.69″ in length, dinner fork size is 6.77″ in length, and the demitasse spoon size is 4.8″ in length. The small spoon is great for little kids, your coffee, or as a backup spoon if you haven’t washed your regular spoon. The utensils themselves are comfortable to hold and use. It’s a great basic set, and really comes in handy. When you have a safe room for Tornados, etc., with food in it, don’t forget your utensils. A set per person, of these would be great to store. Overall, this is a well-made set. Mine arrived with no imperfections, and I think it s a very handy set to own.

A great way to be prepared. – BHBody’s Keychain USB Rechargeable Mini Necklace LED Flashlight.

Standard

My family is big into being prepared. It amazes me how many people do not have the basic items in their home, that can help them and their families in an emergency. From my past experience as a nurse, and in life in general, I can say that a lot of emergencies involve the lights going out, or occurring at night. I believe that you should have at least one flashlight per person, in your home, and extras for company, or flashlight failure. We have several different types per person, in our home. This particular flashlight necklace from BHBody is so unique. I love how it has entered the preparedness arena. People wear neck knives, and tools, and now we can add a stunning looking necklace flashlight. My guys love the look. I, as a female, absolutely love the look. It is a great size at 1 ¾”, it’s an easy size to wear. The chain and flashlight are made out of titanium alloy materials. I think the chain is stainless, but I’m not positive. The chain is a 26” chain, and slips right over my head. That is my personal measurement. So, there’s a great chance you won’t have to undo it to put it on and off. That is highly convenient. The length of the chain, also allows you to use the light, without removing it from your neck. Obviously, that won’t be convenient for everything, but it’s a great option. This is a twist on light to, which is quick and silent, in case you need to be silent. Just twist it clockwise to turn it on, and counter clockwise to turn it off. When the light starts to get weak, just plug it into your micro USB, and let it be. It will not overcharge, and there is an LED light that goes from red to green, once it’s fully charged. It took about 30 minutes for my light to charge. You need to supply your own micro USB. Now, the charging port is located under the top of the flashlight. Unscrew it like you are turning it off, but keep on turning until it comes off completely. You will see the micro USB port on the side of the light. This is pretty bright for a tiny light. It puts off 130 lumens of a bright, white light. I love LEDs. They are so much more user friendly. No poisonous chemicals to deal with. They do not break easily when you drop the light, and they last soooo much longer than regular bulbs as well. This LED is a CREE-XP-G2 LED, and is rated for up to 50,000 hours. No matter how many times I see a lifespan of a LED, it always impresses me. I am a bit of a LED nut, lol. What I also find impressive, is that this tiny light is also a dual mode light. It actually has low and high. High is the 130 lumens. When you start to turn the cap to turn it on, it will first reach low mode, and when you keep turning, you will reach the high mode. You can’t miss it. It has an IPX8 waterproof rating, which means that it is water resistant up to 2M, and has an impact resistance rating of 1.5m. So, this means you can use this light in the rain, and if you drop it from standing, it will be fine and dandy. The internal rechargeable battery is an 10180 Li battery. They state that you can change out the battery when it finally goes. The LED will last longer than the battery. I have dropped the light and ran the light under the faucet. I have had no issues with it. I absolutely love it. It would make a great gift, as it even comes in a fancy gift box, that looks just like a jewelry gift box. You do have the option of putting it on your key ring as well, so it’s not stuck as a necklace only. It’s quite the handy and usable flashlight. I really love it.

This makes it easy to be prepared. – Western Frontiers’ Ultimate MRE, Case of 12.

Standard

I cannot count how many MREs that have come through my home, lol. Between having Military and outdoor enthusiasts in the home, we have had our share. I personally think every home should have some in case of emergency. Ignore the sign of not for resale. That is because the military cannot resale them. MREs are released after a year in surplus, and then companies are allowed to sell them. These have a varied life span from 2017 and up to 4 years. They are clearly labeled with an expiration date. The expiration dates will vary. You receive 12 MRE’s in this case. There is a mixed variety of meals as well. Each package is clearly labeled and tightly sealed. It’s really easy to pack out with these, and very easy to store for preparedness too. You want to store them in a clean, cool, dry place. Each meal contains a water activated flameless ration heater in it. This way you can eat in the field if you need to. It’s also a great way to get hot food when there is no power or readily available fire. The meals received in my box are as follows:

1.       Pork Sausage Patty, Maple Flavored

2.       Chicken Breast Fillet, Seasoned Garlic and Herb

3.       Beef Ravioli in Meat Sauce

4.       Chicken Pesto Pasta

5.       Beef Patty, Jalapeno Pepper Jack

6.       Southwest Beef & Black Beans

7.       Cheese Tortellini in Tomato Sauce (vegetarian)

8.       Pork Sausage in Cream Gravy

9.       Ratatouille – Mixed Vegetable and Pasta (vegetarian)

10.   Rib Shaped Barbecue Flavor Pork Patty

11.   Mexican Style Chicken Stew

12.   Asian Style Beef Strips with Vegetables

Now, do not expect gourmet taste in an MRE, lol. That’s never going to happen. This is food that can keep you alive in dire situations. Some of them can be tasty. My son and husband really like some, and hate others. That really is a personal decision. These are easy to store, and take along with you. They are great to take with you on a trip in case your car breaks down, and you’re stranded. These are definitely the choice to make for a camping trip, especially when you pack out. Every home should be stocked with meals like this in case of an emergency, so your family can still eat. I love that MREs are available to the public. It’s definitely something every home should take advantage of. You need to still provide your own fluids, and water to activate the heater bags. My husband states that some MRE’s will include the water. He says it’s always hit or miss in this department. I love how you get such a mixture of foods in an MRE, including chicklets. I think that is hilarious for some reason. These really make being prepared easy.

A great knife for your car. – Outdoor Games’ WHX Outdoor Camping Survival Folding Knife.

Standard

I live in a house with a lot of guys, and guys like knives. Well, mine do anyhow. I have been converted, and get just as excited about them. Not only are they great tools to have, but the can help you save your life in an emergency. This knife from Outdoor Games can do just that too. It is a great tool to keep in your vehicle. This folding knife has a built in seatbelt cutter as well as a glass breaker on it. It does not come with a sheath, but it does have a metal pocket clip on it. It’s a long metal pocket clip, and sturdy. The blade is a Tanto blade and was made out of 440C Stainless Steel. Overall this knife measures out at 8 ¼” long when opened. The blade measures out at 3.5” to the tip. They state 2.9”, so I would check my state laws before ordering it. We can have up to a 4” blade on us, here in NC. This is a heaver blade with the built in car safety features. It weighs out at 7.3oz with my scale. My knife arrived in perfect condition. It arrived with the usual factory edge, and in my opinion needs to be sharpened. If I want my knife to be able to be fully utilized, it needs to have a sharp edge on it, capable of shaving those hairs, lol. The blade test we always do. Even though it’s a larger knife for me, I can still do the one handed open and close. I’m not great at flicking it open yet, since it’s larger. It is also a little tight when it first arrives, which is normal. There is no play in the blade. When it is opened, it is well locked in. To close it, you just need to press your thumb against the liner lock and push the blade shut with your other fingers. The blade has a camo like finish done on it. It’s pretty sharp looking. The handle is metal with a black, plastic insert which has ridges on it. It helps with the grip, and the aesthetics. There is a lanyard whole already there for you as well. This is a great tool to keep in a vehicle. It would be great camping or hiking as well. In a pinch you can cut your Paracord, or anything else you need. It’s thick and solid, and a great price for such a useful tool.
