We dropped off the planet again for a while but we’re BACK! We have tons of new things in store for our online store, Top Knotch Gear, including new cords, new gear and an entirely new Ladies Line of survival bracelets and gear. In addition, we’re working on a new book that’s all about our paracord projects! (Due to hit shelves in early Spring 2013.) Now that the shaved ice season is slowing down, we’ll be back to posting about budget travel, adventures, fun things to see and do around the world and our favorite, Travel Tip Tuesdays! For now, here’s a great thing we stumbled on the other day – posted by HostelBookers (a fantastic site for booking clean, safe and inexpensive hostels around the world). We’ve been guilty of a few of these (largely #3). What about you?
