Endor Park Service Patch

If you’re a fan of Star Wars and the outdoors, this patch from Dagobah Traders is right up your alley. I'd like to get a couple for myself so I could sew them onto a few pieces of gear.

Art of Manliness “Character is Power” Framed Poster

"The highest object of life is the possession of a good character. The foundations of civil security, the progress and civilization of nations depend upon individual character. Character is power in a much higher sense than that knowledge is power." Henry F. Kletzing

"This illustration served as the frontpiece to a book published in 1899: Traits of Character Illustrated in Bible Light by Henry F. Kletzing. Enlarged and sharpened to beautifully display the qualities of true character, this handsome and inspiring poster is ready to be hung on your wall and serve as a daily reminder to live a life of excellence."

Antiqued Cotton Flight Crew Cap

Sometimes you just need an inexpensive, plain and simple hat. I bet this gets great wear with use too. "Great for casual wear or worn in the cockpit, our hand-made Antiqued Cotton Flight Crew Cap is reminiscent of those issued to USAAF flight crews in WWII."

Truth be told, I really don't need another hat. How many hats does one need anyway?

The Potts' Factor Versus Murphy's Law

"We spent a night with Stan and his lovely wife Joy at the Potts family compound on the Salmon River, in Shoup Idaho. We left the next day in agreement there'd be few men we'd ever meet again who'd lived a life as full, adventurous, perilous, and big as Stan Potts. Perhaps the greatest outfitter and guide the American West has ever known, Stan has worn many hats over the years: some include pipe line welder, rancher, rodeo cowboy, miner, law enforcement officer, logger, butcher, bush pilot, real estate broker, sculptor, and last but not least, author."
