    Hi guys. Welcome back to my channel. Today’s video is an unpack with me. I thought I would share with you our routine, as soon as we get home from vacation, and how I unpack and wash everything. So, we’ve just been away for a week in Cyprus. If you haven’t seen that blog, I will link it down below, but I thought I’d share with you the not so glamorous side of going away as well. What I do is, as soon as we get some from holiday, I unpack, wash everything, and get it put away, all within 24 hours. That is because, if I don’t do it…

    I am wearing Kelty’s innovative PK 50 internal frame backpack. This unique pack incorporates organizational features that I haven’t seen in any other packs on the marketplace. It does so without any zippers, just a really unique offering. But we are going to take a closer look at what makes this pack so different from the others. Before we look at those organization features, I want to flip the PK 50 around and show you its suspension system. Should mention this is an early version of the pack. The model that will hit market is actually going to have a slightly broader aluminum stay from the one that you are…

    Therm-a-Rest Slacker Hammock Bug Cover

    We are taking a look at the Therm-a-Rest Slacker Hammock Bug Shelter. This is a really easy to use bug net that works well with the Therm-a-Rest Slacker Hammock. We will take a look at the setup and the uses of the bug shelter. The main fabric here is no-see-um netting. This is just really a popular bug net that is both light weight, durable and doesn’t allow those pesky winged insects inside of where you are hanging out. The bottom of this is a more durable nylon. So this is part of the netting that might come into contact with the ground. So they used a little bit more…

    Hey there, Contractor Kev here with Overseas Contractor Academy and today I�m going to be answering the question �Have I ever known anyone who got a six figure overseas job without having been in the military before?� I�ll answer that, then stay tuned at the end for the outtakes and credits that Sunny D adds� he says they�re the best part of these videos. *Run Bumper* Have I ever known anyone that got a six figure overseas job that didn�t have a military background?

    Become a Bass Military Scholar at Vanderbilt

    When we think about our scholars here we really sum it up in three words. The first word is Patriot. That recognizes their service to the country. In Iraq is where I got wounded. I was hit with shrapnel in the back and a short time after that I deployed to Afghanistan. The next one is scholar. These are individuals who are very accomplished academically. I was able to develop in several ways as a midshipman at the Naval Academy and then even more so as an officer in the Navy and in the submarine community. And then the third part is leader. All of them have a military record…
