I got my knife!!!

Well… Cheryl got my knife… I’m up in Sacramento hanging out with one of my good buddies from high school, but she took a picture of my knife for me!

Santa Barbara Wedding Photographer Knife

Such a brut!! (i’ll get a better picture later)

Can’t wait til next week! My good friend Taylor Abeel, who I hiked the John Muir Trail with a few years back, and I are headed to the Sierras on Sunday to do a little Man vs. Wild inspired surviving. I’d say Survivor Man, but he’s just not as exciting to watch… and hopefully the video footage from our trip will be a bit more fun to watch!

Today I made it to REI and to the Tin Soldier to buy the last few supplies we’ll be carrying with us. (pretty much a canteen, a tin for cooking in, some small little survival bits and pieces – ie: wire and string to trap animals with – and this knife) I’ll post a picture of the gear before we take off!

  • I've always wanted the knife Rambo had in his movies.
    Don't mess with John Rambo!!!

    you might want to watch the movie (into the wild) before going. what ultralight camera will you be toting along with the knife?

    I sincerely hope you are ready for this! At least you don't have a staff infection this time:)

    I'm actually the opposite, I prefer Les Stroud on Survivorman. Especially ever since it came to light that a lot of Man Vs. Wild is a fraud. Boo!


    Looking forward to seeing all your gear!

    Are you saying your lovely wife photographer didn't provide a quality picture for you?

  • I can't believe you're putting down her pic. I thought it was good! The knife is cool, Tim! I hope the fish cooperate! :-)

    BTW I think Bear Grylls is freaking awesome! I've seen him in person, and he's a stand-up guy. I will agree with the quote from the above-mentioned link:

    'If you really believe everything happens the way it is shown on TV, you are being a little bit naive,' Mr Weinert told the Sunday Times.
