Travel Survival Essential: Duct Tape

I've been completely fascinated with all the weird but charming things being made out of duct tape lately. Not to mention all the pretty new colors and patterns they now come in. Bright pink, green, metallic, plaid, polka dot, damask...

So I picked up a roll of teal and metallic silver and taped together a luggage tag. Why a luggage tag you ask, well, because what else would I make with duct tape?! Luggage tags need to be durable (check), brightly colored so I can spot my luggage on the turnstile quickly (check), waterproof (check), inexpensive (check), and totally cool (check!)! Not to mention I'll be using it shortly while en route to Aruba. Have I mentioned I'm going to the Caribbean yet? Why yes, I do believe I may have mentioned that once or twice. *insert snarky grin here*

I crafted this tag to include a flap with a clear plastic window to read my contact info. Then I tied it up with a neon green ribbon. Now I'm ready to rock and roll! Get it? Roll. Ah, yes I need a vacation.

Survival Things Our Great Grandfathers Did Or Built Around The House.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets...

So I really can't think of anyone more qualified in sharing real-life survival lessons than people who lived through times like these.
