The thread has become too long and unmanageable for its intended purpose. I'm duplicating the thread and trimming one down to just the details and the list.

I'm working two reviews up right now, so that'll be another couple weeks covered.

I know this is off topic (well maybe not), but I'd like to see a piece on something like the proper way to have an old fashioned rat killin'. Maybe some memories of guns as a child. Or maybe some hunting tales, or using some type of specific ammo for hunting without ruining the meat.

Would something like that work?

How about 10 ways the scouts prepared me for the real world.

Or how to successfully diagnose anything

Or the diy mre and you

Or a reality check on your prep level

Or bov choice 101

Or snowshoeing and skiing, a primer in winter motion

Or food canning, a traditionalist way of reaping what you sow

Or ....


OTOH another format that I've been exposed to was flying magazines " I learned about flying from that".
In a nutshell it was a 2-3 paragraph, entertaining short story with a real life lesson some where in the mix. Those kinda stuck with me
