Sprout Pencils spring new life into a dead writing utensil

Sprout Pencils

It seems silly, but you can get attached to a writing implement over time. One pencil can become so familiar to you that you feel as though it is an extension of your arm in the same way a sword would be for a warrior. Those who opt to not use a mechanical pencil are faced with the inevitable task of having to throw away the tiniest nub of a pencil.

But how to keep them alive?

Sierra Designs has a tent from the future

Now, there are plenty of companies out there making tents, but here we are with Sierra Designs – a company that has just announced that they have released a spanking new tent for you and the rest of your pack to seek shelter from the elements while you enjoy nature’s bounty.

I guess the drawback would be the price – as it is said to cost as much as a vacation for two, but think of it as a long term investment.
