3x5?

I vote for 2' x 3' (like in my original post earlier in this thread).

3x5?

That would be a good size, and perhaps a smaller version proportionately? I'm thinking smaller ones on dowels would be ideal markers for navigating a route to a meeting place as obscure as the one that Shannon located in the Iowa wilderness last September.

Did some measuring and Truks' suggested size is more practical. I would like to see a package deal of one large flag 20"x32" and 6 smaller 10"x16" flags that could be, or came, mounted on 1/2" dowels 32" long that could be stuck in the ground. The smaller flag, or both, could be a pennant design too.

Random ideas:

Survival Podcast mousepad?
Fridge Magnets?
Pens?
Calender? Maybe the calender could have neat little quotes, facts, or tips throughout. Pictures of gardens or whatever. Big smiling picture of Jack on the front. ;)

I dunno.. I'd use em. Just ordered a TSP sticker to slap on the side of my computer.

I suggest 2' x 3' for the flags also.

Inexpensive pens so we can 'leave' them around accidentally?

My wife consistently takes mine from my truck and redistributes them to the world on an as-requested basis.

This would be perfect for me. Can we get them in bulk?

I wonder what it would cost to make a "TSP"...The Survival Pen...a pen with the TSP logo and a braided lanyard of para-cord.

Just a quick thought because I took mine off and cleaned out the leaves today...

Spare tire covers!

Or maybe just a stencil or vinyl transfer sized for a 14-16" rim?

+1 to this idea!  Lots of us sit in traffic going to/from work, it would be noticed, that's for sure.

How about a nice bright little key chain light? has a spot on both sides that you could put the artwork from the challenge coin on. You could call it a challenge flashlight

Maybe I've listened to the "the Revolution is You" one time too many.  But has any thought about cammies??

I don't know about any of you, but I'm sick to death of the modern military's "digi-flage" craze!!!

So let's take a giant leap backwards to the 1960's!!

Fellow Survivalists,

I don't know if anyone has suggested this in other threads, but once at a gun show, I met a man who made to order custom-engraved Victorinox Swiss Army Knives, also in a variety of colors besides the trademark red.

A Victorinox Swiss Army Knife would look great with the TSP Logo and Web Site and would be a highly useful product to boot.  The more blades and tools, the better (as long as you can still conveniently carry it, of course.)

I gave a folding knife with custom engravings to a friend of mine when he deployed to Afghanistan.  I think Snug's idea has a lot of merit.

DH & I give a 2 thumbs up to the idea of a Swiss Army Knife with TSP Logo - that would be awesome and we'd definitely want at least 2. Something to think about Sis when you feel better.

I like the custom swiss army knife idea and def would be interested in it.

take a look at these lights, they are extremely bright for a keychain light. i have quite a few from these guys, they send thm as gifts in your orders and are appreciated. one of the nice things about it is is it stays on when you squeeze it so you can hang it to see. http://www.batteryjunction.com/titanium-keylight-custom.html

Nadir_E,

Much obliged on the compliment.  Swiss Army Knives, Leatherman Tools, and other multi-tools have been a usually daily part of my life since age 9 and I'm a lifelong civilian, so I'm sure for military members, such multi-tools are almost like a bodily appendage.  You gave your friend an excellent gift!

 :)

Great idea, and it would be good for gifts, too.

I love the idea of a lanyard. I wear one everyday to display my badge at work. It definitely should have ants and I like the quotes "The Revolution is You" and something Jack said on a past podcast... "Liberty starts in a Garden". They would be great on a t-shirt, too! Thanks.

I like the idea of a calender, either a 12 month flip over type with reminders and pictures. Or a desk type daily calender that you rip the pages off each day like the farside calenders with quotes and things you should do to prepare. Lots of possibilities with this one, would be great to give as gifts to get people on board. The story of the any and grasshopper in there somewhere. Jacks principals..etc.

I was thinking of a shirt something along this line. TSP logo at the top
Then text "You Don't Have To Be Another Face In The Crowd"
Under the text, a crowd of faces, maybe sheep and ostrich like.
Then one face a little bolder in the crowd.... Ant-like or Val  (Maybe with a hoe or trowel held up)
And finally text underneath... "The Revolution Is You"

Just a thought,
 any artists out there???

Sis - I think this is an awesome idea for a shirt - could you whip one up in your spare time?  ;D I know I want one.

Good idea Kasey - I love it!   

See I'm not the only ant who was totally impacted by The Revolution is You episode and we love the new theme song.
