So I just signed up for the "Myapocabox". It's a every other month delivery of survival/bush craft supplies. It also has a challenge that teaches you a skill. It seems very cool. It costs $58, which includes S&H, but they say every box contains $100 or more of stuff in it. I will get the box in mid October and will post a review of it. I have been reading up on the first box that went out in August and everyone seems pretty impressed by it. http://www.myapocabox.com/ https://www.facebook.com/apocabox

So I missed one box, I will go back and share it in the near future. But Lets dig into February. So far this has been my favorite box. So in no particular order I am going to share the items, and my opinion of them.
Pure Vermont Maple Syrup $5. I tiny bottle of some of the yummiest syrup I have ever had.
Winter tree finder $6 A super handy book to I.D. trees during winter/fall when they are missing the leaves were all so used to I.D.'ing them with. The book is small, and very easy to use. A real plus to any outdoors person.
Survival Spile $3 not sure if this is relevant in my part of the world, but for many this could be a life savor. A good item, and hopefully someday I will be in an area were I can use it.
