HGG-Something for the Man in Your Life

Here we have something I think any man would love to have. In fact I know a lot of women who like to fish so this could go for you as well as the men. Today we have a very nice package that I am sure you all will like.

Man Crates sent me the Troutdoorsman crate and it is really something.

It arrives in this wooden crate and is well sealed. They also send the laser-etched crowbar to use for opening the crate.

My husband opened the crate for me and when he saw what was inside he said "who are you giving this to?" I said "I think our son who does a lot of fishing." So then he said, "wow, I would have loved this." Oh well, sorry but our son is getting this one. Mean aren't I? :) So this is all that comes inside this crate:

Man Crates Exclusives

Avant-Garde Recipes for the Trout Enthusiast

O'fish'ial Blend Trout Seasoning

Trout Trappers
Canvas Creel
Kershaw Fixed Blade Filet Knife
Grandpa's Grill Holder

along with this to keep all the fish in until you get home:

Catch And Release The Flavor

Unlike their conniving, malicious aqua-brethren: bass, trout have earned our utmost respect. We think the world of their graceful agility, grandiose color patterns, and overall trustworthy character.

They are beautiful, emotionally-complex creatures, and if there was a way we could enjoy their delicious meaty insides without angling and gutting them, we would. Alas, the universe is cruel, and the best we can do is give them a most honorable end.
A Fresh, Flavorful Farewell
To make their journey into eternal slumber as comfortable as possible for the fisher and the fished, we've selected a Canvas Creel with a waterproof lining and breathable mesh sides. This bag can hold a handful of trout and insulating greenery, creating a fresh, preserving eco-purgatory for our cherished chums as they await their Glorious Zesting.
The Kershaw Fish Fillet Knife is the only trout trimming tool that does right by our fallen fish friends. The stainless steel blade makes for intricate cutting and compact storage, and its texture grip handle is water and fish-slime proof.

And for the camping troutdoorsmen in pursuit of the freshest feast, the Fire Grill gets trout over an open cooking fire in no time. This portable stainless steel wire cage attaches to any stick for a quick, crispy dinner, and honors the slain with a traditional viking burial.

Delicious Fish Dishes

The most worthy tribute to a caught and cooked trout is to ensure its death was deliciously not in vain. For the trout traditionalists, the zesty citrus O'Fish'ial Blend Trout Seasoning ensures every trout reaches its finest flavor potential in life and beyond.

We've unlocked the mysteries of supreme trout flavor in our tell-all book of ingenious meal creations--TROUT: Avant-Garde Recipes for the Trout Enthusiast. From tasty fish tacos where the fish is the taco, to perfectly cooking a fish inside a fish, this Man Crates exclusive cookbook will make that trout wish it was alive to taste itself.

The Troutdoorsman Crate equips every guy to properly commemorate his catch with the freshest, most flavorful fillets imaginable.

This Man Crate is priced at $99.99 and I am sure you know someone who would love to see this under the tree this year.
Man Crates has graciously offered a crate the very same as what I received to one lucky person. So get your entries in today and good luck to everyone.

Open to US/CANADA and ends December 7/17

Stranded on Mars, a hundred million miles from home. Rescue is months or more away. Can the astronauts survive with winter coming? Rescue mission or body recovery? NASA engineers work around the clock searching for ways to keep the Mars crew alive until help arrives.

Stranded on Mars


“Earth, we have a problem!”
A lot of good that message would do! It would hang in the ether for twelve minutes before even reaching Earth. Wolf Yeager had only an hour and a half until his last decent shot at the Mars Orbiting Module, MOM.
If he missed that one, it would be eighteen months before his next chance to reach home.
"Update firing sequence," he ordered the computer. It balked. It was still downloading data to Houston and couldn’t
be interrupted. Shot windows were narrow, but machines took their damn sweet time.
The computer just sat there flashing inane screens about ignition failure. Fuel flows had been nominal; oxidizer flows
had been nominal. Ignition had occurred on contact—hypergolics never failed. Thrust had been below minimum—cause undetermined. The engine had sputtered and the computer had shut it down. The Mars Launch Vehicle was canted, but apparently intact. The engine’s feeble thrust had lifted it off its cradle; abort had dropped it back at an odd angle. In Earth’s gravity, the fall probably would have skewered the thin hull, but Mars
was gentler. They were losing pressure, but slowly. A few duct tape patches should be enough to reach MOM and their ride
home—if he could get the engine started.

or from your favorite neighborhood
or online bookstore.

If you are having problems..

If anyone is having a problem sharing a picture on Pinterest, I said to go to the left top corner and the P will show up. Well it won't. Sorry about that its changed for some reason.

To get the P to show up so you can share on Pinterest, you go off the picture at the top left, just above the picture and you should get the P showing then.

If you still have problems, let me know.
