The Art of Fixing Things ($11) is the must read book before you even bother opening the cover of any other 'how-to' guide to repairing household appliances, cars, farm equipment, garden machines or doing any kind of home improvements. It is THE resource for those smart people who have, as yet, never had the chance to learn the basics of tool use, repairs and maintenance. It contains stacks of useful information that you will not find in any other publication and is also the first new book on this subject in many a year. Written by a third generation member of a family of reliant, do it yourself folks, loads of these 150 tricks and tips come from a time when we always repaired our own possessions rather than trashing them and replacing them. A great book that everyone should read.

And based on this video it's easy to see why, the guy has nerves of steel. If you liked our Biting Elbows 'Bad MotherF&#ker' video then you'll love this one. The video is shot entirely in POV and features a tall Russian building and other locations.
We've all seen the video of the guy walking along a deep snowy path in old time snow shoes, and seeing as he takes each step that he looks like he's wearing a cinder block on each foot. He looks this way because the snow shoes he's wearing are flat and rigid, so each time he steps he's got to lift the enter shoe out of the snow which expends a lot of effort and energy. The TSL Symbioz Snowshoes ($TBA) look to eliminate all of that discomfort and effort. The carbon inserts provide hyper-flexibility and allows the Symbioz to easily adapt to your foot, your stride and the terrain you're trying to conquer. They are light and provide grip while providing natural foot movement, allowing you to expend less energy during your winter walks. And don't worry if you're in a hurry because they're easy to put on due their pre-adjusted memory and telescoping binding.
