I was just curious as to what everyone was working on in thier free time as far as skills training.

I have been working on knots, buildin a few kits, among other things.

I'm not in NC, but have been working on knots. Just finished up three paddles.

I usually like doing something with my hands, so when I watch TV or whatever, I drill knots. I do some dryfire drilling as well, though I don't really consider that free time.

Oh and CENTCOM, love the knot work, truly beautiful well tied knots.

Firestarting. Working up more firestarting kits to carry, and working on lighting with less (flint/steel, magnifying glass, etc.) which will make using a lighter and dryer lint seem acceptable.

This is a great idea to keep current on knot skills whiule not sacrificing entertainment ( Gotta stay up on SOA and Walking Dead, am I right?). I like to do the same although I do not always do so. Thanks for the reminder. I tell you what, Afghanistan deployments can have some down time, I practiced my knot tieing religiously while there on my last deployment.

Right now just trying to get through online ccna classes at work when nmci's pos infrastructure functions well enough to let the videos work, and if the rumors of this sfaat deployment turn out to be true then I'll start working on some tactical dari/pashtu and cross train with the radio guys.

Not from NC either, but I built another go bag today, and got my gear ready for TCCC tomorrow.
