Japan is reportedly sending destroyers and other warships to join up with American military ships that are heading towards North and South Korea. Trump has also called for a full Senate security North Korea briefing at the White House which is extremely rare.

Dryer lint and vaseline one of the best fire starters. Been using this combo for starting firepits for years.

I’ve found I have an infatuation with power packs – almost as bad as with flashlights. I have numerous backup power packs of different sizes. Mostly these are used for cell phone and tablet charging. Once in a while, I plug in one of my rechargeable flashlights to one of them.

I’ve had good luck with this battery power bank. I have two of them and they have stood up to a lot of use.

These things are great for charging cell phones while hiking or on vacation where access to a power outlet is limited.
