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???

I have a variation of that idea.  I call it the "Anti-Che" T-shirt!
It's a red Shirt.  Instead of  a picture of CHe Guivera, with"Viva la Revolution".

It would have a picture of Jack Spirko, holding the trombone squash in each hand(from the YouTube video),And underneath the picture:"THE REVOLUTION IS YOU!"
And on the back of the shirt, you'd have  www.thesurvivalpodcast.com !!!

What do you think??

I realize I'm a minority of one but I love boonie hats. I know, how dorky can you get but even if you never offer boonie hats I'd love a patch I could put on one of the ones I already have.

You're by no means alone, OKGranny - I have several boonie hats and typically wear them when hiking, gardening, or otherwise spending long hours outdoors.

Any chance a large child's-size T-shirt might be offered someday?  My 11-year-old son is a big fan of TSP.  When I purchased a shirt for myself earlier this year, he was quick to inquire about whether he could get one. :)  Since he's kind of "compact" for his age, I told him that he could order a small, but that it would unfortunately still probably be too big for day wear.  Just wondering--not sure what kind of a following Jack might have out there among the younger set (though from what I've been able to deduce, there are plenty of forum members with children!).

Also, I have to say that I like the suggestion made re: the use of the text "You don't have to be another face in the crowd" and "The revolution is you", along with the web address on the back.  (The current theme song has great lyrics.)  I think the words are just edgy enough to be an effective attention-grabber --something to get people interested enough to check out the website.

Serenity,

Kids shirts isn't even something I've considered.  I'll definitely do them, but I need more storage space before they're a possibility.  T-shirts take up a LOT of space, and while I am positive that kids shirts would eventually sell, I think they'd sell a bit slower than adult shirts.  Thus, I think kids shirts are about two years out, unfortunately (after we get out of California).

Bartsdad,

Thanks. Now I have yet another item that I'd like to have.  :D  I don't see a way of getting those little creations customized, though.  I'll look around more later today and see what I come up with.  :)

Good ideas guys,

We are working on the SAK's now and the thumbdrives.

I would love to do Mora's also, and have a few feelers out for them.

Problem is that we are leaving next weekend on a 17 day vacation, so most of the research will have to wait until we get back.

Keep the ideas coming, we want your input.

I wondered about those moras.  They look like fishing knives for preparing a filet or something.  They are good though? I know Cody cut a small tree with one in his book and I was amazed.

BTW, how big are you thinking for the thumb drives? storage wise

I just ordered a red (not pink) mora knife from ragweedforge. I'll post some pics and what I think of it. I have a blue mora i ordered last year, never really looked at it (from countrycomm.com I think).

Aaawwwww that sounds cute Archer. I wonder if my wife would want one. I bet it matches her purse.  :D

Seriously though I'll be interested in seeing your thoughts on them after some hard use.

Dont know if there are any but ant patches would be cool... I would like to throw one on my BOB.

Also someone told me there was some talk about a knife but it needed a sheath or pouch or something. I would be interested in seeing what you need and trying to make it happen. I do leather work.

Thanks,
