Field Notes & Hinderer

Just grabbed a pack of Field notes to go with my Hinderer pen.

Taking notes is an important tool that is hit home hard throughout military training. “Always have your notebook and pen”

This has continued in my day to day life especially with Search & Rescue.

Field Notes make great EDC notebooks, and the Hinderer pen is excellent.

Stay safe,

VDMH

SAR Global tool……..

I picked this up to add to my EDC. This version features a SOLAS marker disk for night time signalling, a highly polished dog tag for day time signalling. There is also a clip on the back so it can be mounted to molle, or used as a money clip.

I’m thinking of getting a second one to modify if this one turns out to do a good job.

Stay safe,

VDMH

Original GWA patch and micro SOLAS marker……

24 HSD from www.gearward.com

It features a piece of moonglow for night time signalling of as a kit marker. So far this has worked great as a “buzz saw”
Give it a quick blast from my Surefire or INFORCE and you are in action.
It also has a small signal mirror for use in daytime.

This has now found its place in my SAR kit, I will carry this inside my HPG kit bag.

They can be found here - http://gearward.com/products/24hsd

They come in at $20 which is a good price for what you get.

Stay safe,

VDMH

Last nights SAR training…………

So last night the team carried out a variety of training and demos for key personnel in the local community.

Bring on the winter climbing………

Whilst everyone else is clinging on to the last remaining days of sun here in the UK. I’m here just wanting the snow and ice to arrive.

Seen here climbing in my Ops Core fast base helmet. Great helmet for mounting a go pro, lights and Rt knives marker discs!

Bring on the cold……..

Stay safe,

12 week tactical conditioning program with TRX suspension trainer.

On week 2 of level 2 and feeling pretty strong. The TRX is a great bit of kit to add to your fitness program, and is a fantastic way to build on your core strength.

The program is broke down into 4 days a week in 3 different levels, for 12 weeks.

These are great for serving military, police and other rescue agencies as all you need is the kit and a door to hang it on. I use mine on a climbing bolt outside , or strap it to a tree when I go for a run.

I originally purchased this kit to aid in building core strength for climbing. Now it is part of my fitness training and helping me build on my conditioning, ready for when a slot comes available for my Swift Water Rescue course.

Train hard and stay safe,

VDMH

A rather good edit of my by a good friend on the SAR team.

Stay safe,
