The Minnesota Wild announced today the team has created an official Wild Playoff Survival Kit for fans, with proceeds benefiting the Minnesota Wild Foundation.
Over the years I’ve come to trust a standard set of backcountry and photo gear that helps me to accomplish photography in the field. Of all my gear, I learned that my backcountry pack is the worst place to skimp, and I’ll pay top dollar for the most comfortable pack. This is an inexpensive, heavy, warm-as-the-equator sleeping bag that most outdoor chain stores carry a version of.
My top priority in choosing backcountry gear is to avoid weight, which induces fatigue and reduces my productivity behind the camera.
Gortex Bivy Sack-This is a weather-proof tube that your sleeping bag fits inside, which saves a lot of space and weight in your pack when you don’t need a whole tent, such as in summer on a 1-night trip. Mosquito Repellent-Water is everywhere in the high Rockies and Mosquitoes are terrible in summer. Nalgene Bottle-I bring a bottle in addition to my bladder because the bladder is ONLY good for its intended purpose; storing a large amount of water in your pack and sucking it through a tube.
Multi-tool– I use my multi-tool frequently, including for removing hooks and gutting fish, as an eating utensil, gripping hot pot lids, and making equipment repairs. In addition to the photo equipment below, there are some additional items that I’ll briefly begin with. I think by now this model has been updated, but I like the 055 because it’s somehow as light as some much smaller travel tripods, yet rock steady, and far less expensive than the highest end tripods.
This head is heavy, adds a fair amount of height to the tripod and is finicky to adjust, but it’s well-built and gets the job done without spending a fortune. The Nikon D810 is currently among the most advanced and highest resolution cameras available for nature photography, for what I think is a bargain price. What originally drew me into photography were not landscapes, but close-up photos of small animals like insects and frogs, which is specifically what this lens is for.
This lens is a workhorse for landscapes that have big features at relatively close distances like canyons, or a mountain face that I’m standing right at the foot of.
This is an essential multi-tasker than can cover semi-wide landscapes, distant landscapes, portraits, and wildlife.
Carhartt Jeep Cap-Of many cheap and expensive caps that I’ve tried, this is the most durable, warm, versatile, and inexpensive. An urban survival kit is a set of tools designed to help you survive in a city after a disaster.
Pepper Spray: Pepper spray is an example of a non-lethal It’s designed to temporarily blind an attacker so that you can get away. Stun Gun: This small handheld device delivers a power electric shock that will temporarily paralyze even the largest of attackers. Hopefully you’ll never need to use these weapons on someone else, but you should still have them just in case. You must know how to prepare fish and game for cooking, storage, and preservation in a survival situation.
Eating spoiled or rotten fish may cause diarrhea, nausea, cramps, vomiting, itching, paralysis, or a metallic taste in the mouth. To skin a snake, first cut off its head including 10 to 15 centimeters (4 to 6 inches) behind the head.
After killing the bird, remove its feathers by either plucking or skinning being careful not to let the feathers touch the game meat. NOTE: When cutting the hide, insert the knife blade under the skin and turn the blade up so that only the hide gets cut. Remove the entrails from smaller game by splitting the body open and pulling them out with the fingers. Keep the poncho enclosure around the meat to hold the smoke and keep a close watch on the fire.

Digitale disruptie is het fenomeen dat jonge bedrijven door digitale innovatie in een heel korte tijd een dominante positie in een markt kunnen innemen ten koste van bestaande marktpartijen.
In het huidige digitale tijdperk, met ondermeer Facebook, Twitter, smartphones en tablets kunnen jonge start-ups in een mum van tijd de wereld veroveren door slim gebruik te maken van alle digitale mogelijkheden van nu.
Gezien de enorme snelheid waarmee een digitale innovatie een markt penetreert, wordt het fenomeen ook wel Big Bang disruption genoemd. Clayton Christensen analyseerde eind jaren ’90 een groot aantal bedrijven en kwam in zijn boek The Innovator’s Dilemma tot dezelfde conclusie.
De eerste stap tot overleven is het vroeg herkennen van de signalen van radicale verandering. Nadeel van de watch & catch strategie is dat het heel lastig is te bepalen welk initiatief het waard is om in te investeren. Naast het scherp volgen van de markt, is er een scala aan mogelijkheden om binnen de organisatie disruptieve ideeen tot ontwikkeling te brengen.
Het voordeel van interne innovatie is dat het al draagvlak heeft van medewerkers in verschillende delen van de organisatie en daardoor sneller zal worden geaccepteerd.
Een derde en veel beproefde strategie voor digitale innovatie voor gevestigde bedrijven is de greenfield organisatie. Het groot voordeel van een greenfield strategie is dat je de succesvolle start-up mentaliteit en creatieve cultuur kan bewaren, waardoor het disruptieve idee snel tot ontwikkeling kan worden gebracht. De echte innovators, zoals Amazon en Google, hebben gekozen voor innovatie als basisstrategie. Het grote voordeel van innovatie als basisstrategie is dat het de meest slagvaardige manier is van innoveren. Welke strategie voor jouw organisatie het meest geschikt is, hangt af van de urgentie – hoe gevoelig is jouw sector voor digitale disruptie? Over Digital BlvdDigital Boulevard of kortweg Digital Blvd is opgericht door Robert Jan van Nouhuys.
As Hiroo Onoda said back in 1973, “Survival kits are literally the difference between life and death. In the last installment, we talked about different containers to build your survival kit around.
A robust blade like this Coye should be part of your EDC in the wilderness, not part of your kit.
Lets just assume you failed to bring a knife, or you lost your primary blade along the way.
There is also other blades which can be added to your kit, not just scalpel and utility types. If your budget is tight, or you are crafty then you can always make your own blades for the kit. Since knives were one of early man’s most important tools, you will certainly need one to live his lifestyle of survival.
My trips include day hikes, extended backpacking trips, and multi-day 4×4 expeditions, and I have a designated set of gear for each. Instead I simply use a high capacity standard backpack, currently the Gregory Palisades 80.
It keeps your camera tactical right on your chest where you can grab it and start shooting while wearing a full-sized pack. I use this pack for short trips when I need extra clothing or gear, such as in inclement weather or for an over-nighter. The Nalgene bottle lets me pour water into pots, carry around smaller amounts of water, mix in flavorings and scoop up snow. If you intend to make very large prints, then not even entry level models from good manufacturers reduce camera vibrations enough. Macro lenses posses a long focusing tube, which allows them to focus closer than regular lenses, while still working perfectly at regular distances.
As with all zooms, this lens performs ok at the margins of its range, but has great clarity and lack of distortion in the middle, which is when I use it most. When viewing prints, there’s not a blatant difference in clarity, but you can certainly tell when comparing files at 100% magnification on-screen. It has enough material to pull down over the the back of your neck, and folds up over your ears. In typical high altitude Winter conditions, with no gloves you’ll be unable to use your numb fingers after a few minutes, and will get frostbite shortly thereafter. I use cheap, gas station glasses because they’ll eventually end up at the bottom of a creek or forgotten on a tree stump somewhere. I’ve found some great alternatives including inexpensive dried soups from the bulk section of supermarkets and Whole Foods. I’m not saying it’s going to be impossible, but it’s definitely going to be more challenging than if you lived in a rural area. Here’s a scenario that could happen: you’re stuck in traffic when all of a sudden, the entire city loses power. And to top it all off, your vehicle is running low on gas and your six-year old daughter is getting hungry.


Since water bottles take up a lot of space, I don’t recommend stuffing a bunch of them in your survival kit.
Improper cleaning or storage of wild game can result in inedible, or possibly worse, wasted fish or game.
However, boiling the fish with the skin on is the best way to preserve the most nutritional food value. For instance, pack fish into a ball of clay and bury it in the coals of a fire until the clay hardens.
To skin a bird, cut a ring around the skin just above the feet and then cut an incision from the legs to the tail, then tear off the entire skin to the neck.  Remember, skinning removes some of the food value. Remove the hide by pulling it away from the carcass, cutting the connective tissue where necessary. You can stew or boil smaller pieces, particularly those that remain attached to bone after the initial butchering, as soup or broth.

At mortal journey, check out the footprints of our past - interesting stories and news about past and current trends and fads. In mijn vorige artikel over dit onderwerp beschrijf ik dat vroeg of laat elke branche met een vorm van digitale disruptie wordt geconfronteerd, ook sterk gereguleerde markten zoals de gezondheidszorg, het onderwijs en de financiele dienstverlening. Volgens Downes en Nunes volgt een digitale disruptie niet het patroon van een normale adoptiecurve. De econoom Joseph Schumpeter beschrijft in 1937 al hoe nieuwe ondernemingen continu de gevestigde ondernemingen van de markt verdrijven door beter te innoveren dan hun voorgangers. Gevestigde bedrijven blijken zelden in staat om adequaat te reageren op baanbrekende innovaties.
Ook nu zijn traditioneel georganiseerde bedrijven vaak blind voor de potentie van digitale innovatie.
Hierna beschrijf ik vier strategieen voor bestaande organisaties om succesvol te anticiperen op digitale disruptie. Dit kan van alles zijn: onbalans in de markt, hoge marges, extreme luxe, een onuitgesproken behoefte van een klant, een interessante technische innovatie, een eerste idee van een start-up of een best practice uit een totaal andere markt. Veel organisaties doen dit door innovatieteams samen te stellen uit vertegenwoordigers van verschillende business units, aangezwengeld door een enkele fanatiekeling die hier speciaal voor is vrijgemaakt. Het nadeel van interne innovatie is dat het veel tijd kost om tot succes te komen en grote kans heeft ten onder te gaan aan het eerder genoemde innovators dilemma.
Een greenfield organisitie is een aparte business unit buiten de gevestigde organisatie die de volledige vrijheid krijgt om een disruptieve innovatie te ontwikkelen. Om de concurrentie aan te gaan met nieuwe low cost carriers als Easyjet en Ryanair richtte Transavia een aparte business unit op dat zich 100% toelegde op het aanbieden van goedkope lijndiensten via internet. Eigenlijk passen ze alle hiervoor genoemde strategieen toe, maar bovenal passen ze het toe in het hart van de organisatie. Whichever vessel you choose, you are going to fill it with the maximum amount of useful gear as possible.
It’s exasperating to note the number of Soldiers and Cops and responsible citizens who fail to carry a blade in uniform or out and about. A company called Havalon Knives makes fixed and folding knives which use replaceable stainless steel blades. Small folders, mini multitool, razors, needles, safety pins, arrowheads…its your call. NHL, the NHL Shield, the word mark and image of the Stanley Cup and NHL Conference logos are registered trademarks of the National Hockey League.
To carry my photo gear, I either use a chest pack (see below), or store items in a separate camera case that I put inside the backpack.
After trying most large packs on the market, my current backcountry pack is the Gregory Palisade 80.
Though small on the outside, it easily carries my big D800 with a full-sized mounted lens, an additional large lens, and all my filters, batteries, etc… If you really cram things, it can carry a third smaller lens.
To avoid soiling the environment I only use soap if necessary, but this soap is supposedly all natural and biodegradable.
In my opinion they’re essential to landscape photography and contribute significant impact to all photos that include sky, clouds, water, reflective surfaces and a lot of color, so pretty much all landscapes.
Its purpose is to make the tripod head perfectly level as it pans across a plane when shooting multi-framed panoramics.
I use the D810 because it has a full frame FX sensor with 36 megapixels, which allows me to produce sharp 60″ prints.
When on the move I quickly overheat and have to open up, but when standing on frozen lakes in sub zero temperatures I’m totally comfortable. Tasty examples are corn chowder, black bean soup and potato stew, which I store in large Ziplock bags and spoon out as needed. Most people aren’t going to be carrying around massive bags, so MREs aren’t going to be very space-efficient. Most people are just like you- hardworking, honest, and simply trying to watch out for your family. The reason why is because tactical flashlights not only illuminate the dark, but they can also double as a weapon. Remember that in a city you’ll be surrounded by way more people than if you lived in a rural area.
Nutritious fats and oil are stored just under the skin and, by boiling, you can save the juices for broth. Open up the body cavity and remove the entrails, saving the craw (in seed-eating birds), heart, and liver. Place the carcass belly up and split the hide from throat to tail, cutting around all sexual organs. There is less work and less wear on your knife if you break the ribs first, then cut through the breaks.
You can cook body organs such as the heart, liver, pancreas, spleen, and kidneys using the same methods as for muscle meat.
Properly smoked meat will look like a dark, curled, brittle stick and you can eat it without further cooking. Inmiddels maken ook bedrijven in sterk gereguleerde sectoren zich zorgen om deze plotselinge concurrentie uit onverwachte hoek. De advertentie-gebaseerde versie van Angry Birds op Android werd in de eerste 24 uur na lancering een miljoen keer gedownload.
De sterk digitaal georienteerde nieuwkomers weten niet alleen veel toegevoegde waarde te bieden, ze hanteren disruptieve business modellen en daarmee veranderen ze de regels van het spel. In plaats van dat een product langzaam aan populariteit wint in achtereenvolgens vijf marktsegmenten, zijn dat er bij digitale disruptie slechts twee: testgebruikers en de overgrote meerderheid. Dit komt door de bedrijfscultuur, verkokering binnen de organisatie en de sterke focus op het bedienen van bestaande klanten. Ze zijn avers voor de ‘lean and mean’ ontwikkelmethodes waarmee kleine start-ups vanuit uitgeleefde bedrijfspandjes beter blijken in te spelen op de onuitgesproken behoeften in de markt. Zo kan je nieuwe ideeen vrij ontwikkelen, zonder dat je direct rekening hoeft te houden met de belangen van een eigen business unit. Nadat Basiq Air zich had bewezen, voegde Transavia de unit samen met de bestaande organisatie. Elke squad gedraagt zich als een lean start-up en is gericht op een specifieke functie die in korte iteraties wordt ontwikkeld.
Op het moment dat je een dergelijke autonome unit wil integreren in het moederbedrijf geeft dat aan beide kanten wrijving. Als geen ander handelen ze naar het principe: je kan maar beter jezelf overbodig maken, voordat iemand anders dat voor je doet. Als de urgentie hoog is, maar jouw organisatie heeft nog weinig ervaring met het snel ontwikkelen van innovatieve digitale proposities, dan is een snelle overname of een greenfield strategie het meest gepast. With a larger kit, its easy to fill the container to the brim with overly redundant or heavy gear. This can be a small, simple folder, or just a piece of sharpened steel such as a surgical scalpel blade.
They come in several styles, to include a “hunter” style drop point, filet and bone saw which happens to be a great wood saw. These arrow heads can be used to make knives, as well as a spear points in addition to being used for their intended purpose. The saw blade can be used to create fine combustible shavings off fire starters set in magnesium blocks, as well as separating wood and bone. All NHL logos and marks and NHL team logos and marks as well as all other proprietary materials depicted herein are the property of the NHL and the respective NHL teams and may not be reproduced without the prior written consent of NHL Enterprises, L.P.
I like the big front compartment that can zip open to accesses the main compartment without having to go through the top, water bladder compartment with port, small pouch on the hip belt for my compass, and a more efficient way to tighten the waist strap than on other packs.
The strap system that goes across your back distributes the weight well with no pressure points or pulling on your neck. It accommodates only the lenses that I need, survival itmes, a snack and water, a light jacket and my tripod.
I’ve comfortably used it in Winter in well below freezing temperatures while my Nalgene bottle froze solid overnight. I need a setup that supports a full sized DSLR and lens stably enough to shoot long exposures without wiggle.


A perfectly leveled head is important because otherwise you end up with a diagonally tilted panoramic stitch that must be corrected through cropping, which robs you of pixels. In that situation changing lenses that often isn’t practical or healthy for the equipment.
I use it most often for panoramic stitch-together simply because I often shoot each frame at exactly 50mm. But if you’re trying to be cheap and want to take the DIY approach, here’s a good article to refer to.
When struck in vulnerable areas (head, face, etc.), a tactical flashlight can do a lot of damage. In dit artikel beschrijf ik vier strategieen hoe gevestigde ondernemingen kunnen anticiperen op digitale disruptie.
Succesvolle bedrijven leggen te veel nadruk op het bedienen van de huidige klantbehoeften en te weinig op de onuitgesproken toekomstige behoeften.
En dat is een gemiste kans, want juist de succesvolle bedrijven van nu beschikken veel meer dan de nieuwkomers over de middelen om te innoveren. De stroom aan ideeen kan je daarnaast vergroten door klanten te betrekken in co-creatiesessies of via een online innovatieplatform. Enexis Unplugged is daar een mooi voorbeeld van.
De squads hebben hun eigen werkruimten, een platte organisatiestructuur en een producteigenaar, die de verbinding met de andere squads maakt. De kans is groot dat alle succesvolle mensen vertrekken om aan een nieuw uitdagend concept te werken. Zo verkoopt Amazon al enkele jaren tweedehands boeken via haar site, hoewel het kannibaliseert op de verkoop van nieuwe boeken. Wordt er uberhaupt nog geen aandacht besteed aan digitale disruptie in het bedrijf, dan wordt het tijd om de ogen te openen en op zoek te gaan naar de eerste signalen in de markt. Although it’s your own personal preference what you want to carry, keep in mind what the kit will actually be used for and what environments you will be carrying it in. Whether you are John Rambo or Joe Shit the Ragman, everyone should have a good, sharp, dependable knife on their person as often as possible.
Taking a section to a bench grinder will give you a sharp edge, which will serve as a crude knife. Knives and blades will be used to construct shelter, build fires, skin wild game, and fashion weapons for hunting. I recently hiked with this bag and my backcountry pack 10 days across Patagonia for a total of 80 miles with total comfort. Unfortunately there are only a few such packs in this size class on the market, and their prices are preposterous. This bag is thickly padded, and the outside canvas is durable enough to endure dirt and abuse. Among other functions, this lets me take a photo without having to press down on the shutter button, which produces a sharper photo when longer shutter speeds are used.
The tripod must rise to full height purely through leg extension, not by having to raise the center column, which is wobbly. The Pan & Tilt head is not as quick to position as a Ball Head, but I find the adjustments to be more precise, and the range of motion greater. The other option to level your tripod head is to painstakingly adjust the tripod legs, which is time consuming and imprecise.
The gravity of that fact is that until lens glass can be produced clearer for the same cost, using sensors much beyond 36 megapixel may be impractical.
They’re about $20, and will allow you to drink from pretty much any water source without having to worry about getting sick.
Since nuts contain a lot of calories, things like trail mix and peanut butter are great options. Always have a way to protect you and your family, even if you think you won’t need to use it.
Peel the skin back, then grasp the skin in one hand and the body in the other and pull apart (Figure 8-25). For smaller mammals, cut the hide around the body and insert two fingers under the hide on both sides of the cut and pull both pieces off. Cut around the anus, then reach into the lower abdominal cavity, grasp the lower intestine, and pull to remove.
You must cut around a large bone at the top of the leg and cut to the ball-and-socket hip joint. Ze staan bovendien niet open voor nieuwe business modellen, omdat die vaak kannibaliseren op hun bestaande business. Ze hebben immers al toegang tot de markt, beschikken over de benodigde financiele middelen, relevante kennis en ervaring. Betrek daarvoor buitenstaanders bij je strategievorming, zoals trendwatchers, industriebloggers of een kritische klant. Om een broodnodige digitale impuls te krijgen, organiseren bedrijven en overheden steeds vaker hackathons. Dit betekent altijd bezig zijn om nieuwe business modellen te bedenken, betere klantervaringen te ontwikkelen, agile en multi-disciplinair te werken.
If you live in the Pacific NorthWest, you will need a different kit than someone who lives in Phoenix. Should you forget or lose your survival kit, it might be the only survival tool you have at your disposal. Several of these can be carried in your kit, and used for many cutting, scraping and intricate tasks.
We are constantly scanning the shelves of hardware and hunting stores for blades which can be repurposed into our survival kits. Early man made his first knives out of stone and flint, which is still practiced in primitive tribes to this everyday. On most backcountry trips I only carry 2 lenses and minimal gear because I’ll only be shooting landscapes.
I’d rather use this great pack and adapt it to carry camera gear by placing a photo case inside. I use it with a full length Thermarest mattress and a sleeping bag liner for easy cleaning. I also consider Photoshop part of my camera equipment because I use it to post process every photo that I release.
The tripod must be made from carbon fiber because it’s stiff yet extremely light on long hikes. Daarnaast heeft de gevestigde orde de neiging om neer te kijken op onconventionele nieuwkomers die zich zelden houden aan de geschreven en ongeschreven etiquette in de branche.
Zet je oogkleppen af en laat je regelmatig een spiegel voorhouden door mensen met een afwijkende mening.
Dit zijn evenementen waar developers, designers en creatieven worden uitgedaagd om in 24 of 48 uur een totaal vernieuwende applicatie te creeren op basis van ter beschikking gestelde datasets. Het is onze ervaring dat dit het beste werkt met een mix van ervaren experts, jong digital talent, weinig hierarchie en veel ruimte voor creativiteit. Ook stimuleert Amazon als een van de grootste fysieke boekenverkopers de verkoop van digitale boeken en ontwikkelde zij zelf de Kindle, een van de eerste succesvolle e-readers. Alternatively, If you intend on building a “universal” type kit that will work in the widest range of environments your selection of equipment will be more basic. If you have retained your kit, you will have a much easier time using a full size blade over a smaller one out of your emergency reserve.
Knapping flint cutting tools such as knives, axes and arrowheads is time consuming and hard if you haven’t practiced before.
I paid a staggering $90, and it has plenty of external lashing points, bottom straps to carry a sleeping pad or tripod, water compartment with port, separate compartments, and an outside throw compartment to stuff a large item. Because I prefer not to use split-field neutral density filters, Photoshop allows me to blend multiple exposures of the same photo together so that I get perfectly exposed sky and foreground.
It must also be small and mobile enough for outdoor photography, thus the truly full-sized tripods are out of the question. I’m not telling you this scenario to scare you, but rather, prepare you for what could happen.
Also, if you learn how to dehydrate food, that can be a good option for your urban survival kit as well.
Er bestaan gesloten hackathons, alleen toegankelijk voor medewerkers, en open hackathons, hieraan kan in principe iedereen deelnemen. Belangrijk daarbij is dat ideeen heel snel tastbaar worden gemaakt, aan de klant worden voorgehouden en vervolgens weer worden doorontwikkeld.
Voor de organisatoren een bron van inspiratie en een goede graadmeter voor kwaliteit van de arbeidsmarkt. In the wilderness, there’s plenty of wood, water, edible plants, and wild game to go around.
Het gaat erom zo snel mogelijk feedback te verzamelen om te weten of je op de juiste weg zit: think, create, improve.
