JEEP ENHANCEMENTS - UNDER HOOD LIGHT

JEEP ENHANCEMENTS - UNDER HOOD LIGHT

September 26, 2016

A few months back a good friend who is MUCH more mechanically orientated than I am was showing me this great modification he had completed on his jeep. He's one of those guys who has a jeep like Batman's utility belt with all the innovations and mods. Im a big fan of not only seeing what people come up with but what he told me next gave me a huge smile!

So what was the mod you ask? We he had a hood light that was LED, hooked into the underside of his hood, had a nice long retractable cord, and the last finally awesome feature the light had a magnetic base. So not only can you take the light all the way to the back end of the jeep you can stick it to the underside while you work so you don't have to hold the light in your teeth or screw with where you last saw your headlamp. Now the immediate follow up question was of course...Where can I get one of those? His epic response was ebay because it was a feature on older model suburbans. Following that it was off to ebay for me and I found a virtually new light just as he told me. Now at the time of the install I was still waiting on the LED replacement bulb but have since gotten it all working with great results. 

Thats right folks innovation from twenty something years ago.

So if you're a fan of great mods with minimal install if you can even call it that check out this mod. That being said the install consisted of screwing the box into my hood and then connecting the wires. I think it took me longer to figure out which LED light to get for it than it did for him to have it in and running.

HDT had a huge impact on me when I was younger and still at times whispers in my ear when I'm looking for that solution that seems untenable at best and precarious more often than not.  His writing when I first encountered it was sophisticated yet obviously simple.  I longed to rebel and move to a cabin on a pond to stand against the encroachment of law to the wilds of man.  Long lasting echos of simplification still encroach on my life some twenty-two years past when I enlisted for the most conforming process possible for a seventeen year old boy.

The Survival Tree
The Survival Tree

April 12, 2018

A lot of people have asked me about how they could increase their survivability in an active shooter situation. The reality is sometimes you can’t win and that’s something you should be training for. Train for the worst day of your life and hopefully when it happens it’s nowhere near the level you trained for. If you’re lucky, your preparations will have paid off. However, the reality that you should always keep in the worst case scenario box is that you will not win. Get comfortable with that monster and snuggle up. You’re going to be spending a lot of time together. When you understand and embrace the fear, it allows you to rationally respond. In some fortunate moments, you will recognize the monster you’ve become comfortable with.

Self Over Brand

March 15, 2018

I read somewhere recently that people put their faith in brands now over more traditional things.  Looking at my social media feeds and several news outlets this becomes very clear.  Not only do people get upset when they find out their favorite brands don’t fit their social expectations but they pay homage to brands for their personal successes.  Somewhere along the way we lost sight of the fact that brands are there for business but without the customer there is no brand.  Examining the idea of such things can be taboo but I like taboo so lets do this.
