Backpacking Comanche Peak Video

June 2017

Wild Rhubarb

I have a short class with Wild Food Girl this Saturday. It should be fun and informative. A lot of the plants I have a passing familiarity with but haven't found in the wild yet - not because they are rare, I just haven't seen them or perhaps recognized them.

Look for the video. Hopefully it won't take me long to get to it, but I have a large video backlog.

2 June 2017: HAM Radio (getting on the air) Course


When: Fri. June 2nd, 6pm - 8pm
The course will cover:

Vidme and Patreon Announcement

RestlessAdventurer Video Channel

Okay I wasn't going to mention anything until I had populated the sites, but it's a slow news week. I am now on both Vidme and Patreon as RestlessAdventurer. I have decided to test the waters so to speak. Both sites allow for viewer supported videos. Time will tell.

May 2017


It has been a hectic couple of months. I crammed for my test and earned my Amateur Radio Service Technician's License. There was 4 days of pistol class plus practice. And a couple camping trips. I got a little further in my Pathfinder School course. And of course there was video editing which takes way too long. I haven't made many updates here (and there was a computer crash that I needed to recover from) but I did start a and Patreon page. They are empty for now as I'm concentrating on YT for the moment.

2017 Project Guns

Projects for 2017

I have several firearm projects this year. The first two are pictured. One is a dedicated 9mm AR15 pistol build. It is built around a Palmetto State Armory dedicated 9mm Glock lower receiver. The other is an update to my modernized vz58 style gun. Not pictured are my Czech projects. I decided to refinish two surplus CZ 75's and the Compact was getting a full make over. That one will probably get made into a video. And lastly there is the CZ Scorpion EVO pistol that needs a few mods before it is ready for prime time. As of mid May only the vz58 and CZ 75 BD are done. The others are still waiting on some parts.

June Update: The AR pistol is almost compete and shooting great. I am behind 2 YT videos. I am still waiting on the Tailhook brace. Both CZ75 pistols are finished and look great. Shoot great too. Also behind on these videos. And finally my Scorpion arrived. While it shoots good I had to contact CZ because I had to max out the left-right adjustment to line up the sights with the point of impact. That can't be right. I'm still waiting on the Tailhook adapter. Oh lastly my modernized vz 58 is sporting a new optic. The gunsmith, a real one not me, drilled and attached the side mount. Now it has a side mounted 3x optic with a bullet drop compensating reticle! A thousand times better than my previous setup.

RestlessAdventurer Video Channel

I finally did it and created the RestlessAdventurer Channel. No announcement, no fanfare. I've been thinking about creating it for some time now and it was a relief to finally launch. I don't know how much time I will devote to it yet but it has been an interesting and fun experience so far. There is not much content yet but here is a sample:

And it gives me a chance to share some random stuff that I otherwise would not post:

And some really old stuff:
