So what is a boy to do? Welcome the TTTk, the kit I built to provide access to a variety of tools and supplies at a moment’s notice. I constrained myself to an Altoids tin to make sure it was small enough for a pocket or bag with little inconvenience. The supplies render many McGuiver like solutions in the field but they are better then nothing.” Link. It’s all of course in an Altoids tin.

    “No parking” stickers ? why ?

  4. BrK says:

    The “No Parking” stickers fall under the mischief/troublemaking category ;)
