I feel so dirty. So used, so cheap. My wife bribed me to go to Walmart and do some grocery shopping by telling me that I could pick up some "toys." Like the cheap whore that I am, I took the bait. Anyway, today, I picked up a Outdoor Products Vortex 8.0 Hiking Backpack. This pack comes with an aluminum water bottle, so sort of a 2 for 1. Holds lots of gear, and allowed me to build her her own BOB. I also picked up another 50' of paracord (you can never have enough, right?), and a Gerber Gator Jr. Machete. The machete seems really solid, didn't come very sharp, but I have become a fairly proficient sharpener with a stone. It has a great handle, and comes with a nylon sheath. Overall, pretty happy with today's shopping, even if I soiled my dignity.
