Homemade MREs For quite a while now, I've wanted to make up my own "MREs" for my Get Home Bag (GHB). I was recently out scouting some properties, and realized that my GHB only had some packs of tuna and some candy in them. I had broken my own Cardinal Rule - If you use it, replace it immediately. So, I went about making up some MRE packages. Now, these are not true MREs, in that their shelf life is less than half of the 5 years of a commercial MRE, but I figured they were WAY less expensive (remember this later on in the post...). I assembled my "ingredients" based on "Best By" date, calories and protein content.

Blogging for Money - Make Money Blogging While Traveling and Travel Blogging for Money How to pay for travel is the eternal question for student travelers and backpackers.

Safety guidelines are questionable, attractions are a bit lees planned-out, and themes are chosen with a decidedly laissez-faire attitude.

Between South Korea’s affinity for anthropomorphic roller coasters, Japan’s misguided desire the please the Ruskies, and Berlin’s story of a carnival master turned Peruvian drug smuggler, exploring international abandoned parks is a big notch on any urban explorer’s camera strap. But take note! Breaking into these parks is not for the faint of heart (or slow of step).

This is really more of a request than a question. Hobbiton: Sheep 1, Hobbits 0 Matamata in New Zealand was the place chosen to film the Hobbiton scenes of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy of movies. After the film was finished the farm upon which the Hobbit village was created asked if some of the hobbit homes could remain to serve as an additional tourist attraction to the area. ...And so it was. However, it does look as if the sheep have discovered a new home and evicted the previous hobbit owners. A shame in some ways. However, the structures were never built and then fully furnished - all the scene's inside of Bilbo's house were shot in a studio far away.
