Ruck & Roll: Further Adventures in Krav Maga

by Lance Manley

“By this time I was beyond any perception of exhaustion. My pony tail was completely wrecked and, wearing 16oz gloves, I couldn’t stop to put it back. With reduced visibility in the car park, 7″ of hair dangling in my face and my clothes sopping in sweat I felt like a scuba diver who’d just kicked up too much silt from the ocean bed and was waiting for it to clear”.

Follow-up to the book WALK IN PIECES: Diary of a Krav Maga Practitioner.

Winging it 2nd edition

by D. Ramati

This story is a flow of consciousness from a man, who started out as an auto mechanic, realized his dream of being a Pilot Captain, grew old (as we all do), and searched for meaning in his life.
This is his story as told to me over the years. My former name was Tim before I pulled up stakes and immigrated to Israel where I translated my names into Hebrew (David Ramati being the translation of Tim Bratvold) so he refers to me in here as Tim. Donald is part big bother and surrogate father. There is 12 years between us and he never had much to do with me until I was in my early teens when he became my hunting, fishing and safari buddy, philosophy lecturer, and an all-around interesting part of my life. This continued until I joined the USMC and left for Vietnam. My mother was shot to death while I was there in-country and, little by little, we drifted apart. Some of this was because of our mutual grief, and the certainty that an epoch had ended. Donald went on to become a professional pilot and moved to Alaska with his family, and I drifted until I built a family of my own and moved to Israelâ?¦but that is another story. We did keep in contact over the years by snail mail, and with the advent of the internet and skype, our communications improved a thousand-fold. I could have called it an autobiography, but the word â??biography’ is better suited since it is really a story of his journeys from which he returns, like Ulysses, an old man with memories of former glories. His spirit exemplifies the story of one man’s search for a dream, a dream only possible in the America of his times. I have been fortunate to share a part of his life and his story:

more Tales from the Mountain: Wilderness Adventures of Jake Meissner

by John Herbst

This is volume two of “Tales from the Mountain”. Volume one had fifteen short stories of Jake Meissner’s adventures in the majestic Colorado Rockies. In volume two, John Herbst is continuing Jake’s adventures with twenty five short stories.
Jake lived the first eighteen years of his life in a small farming and cattle town called Greeley. The small town was located in the high plains and farmland of northern Colorado. Greeley was twenty miles from the foothills of the Rockies, however this didn’t keep Jake out of the mountains.
As a young boy, Jake went on camping trips with his family to places like the Big Thompson canyon, the Poudre canyon, and Red Feather Lakes. As Jake grew older, he went on many camping trips with the Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and also his godfather.
Jake learned how to fish and build a fire from his father. Jake’s father, Will Meissner, was a solid built man of five feet eleven inches, and weighed one hundred eighty pounds. Jake learned how to cook on an open fire, how to take photographs, and how to hike from his mother. Jake’s mother, Julie, was a petite woman of five feet four inches, weighing one hundred fifteen pounds. Will and Jake would fish in the morning, and then Julie and her young son would bushwhack in the hills and forest surrounding their campsite in the afternoon. The fire building skills, the photography, and the hiking would prove to stay with Jake his entire life.
When Jake was old enough to join the Cub Scouts, and later the Boy Scouts, he learned other valuable skills. He not only had the skills from his parents, but new skills such as team building, communication, map and compass reading, and tracking were now his. He also learned about wildlife habits and weather patterns, skills that could possibly save his life in the wilderness.

Each excursion to the wild mountains set the rugged environment deeper into his soul! As Jake would travel down the canyon on his way back to Greeley, he was already longing for the environment where he belonged. By the time he was in the foothills, Jake was missing the fresh mountain air and the sight of the varied wildlife. He would think of the wonderful colors of the granite, limestone, quartz, and red rock. Jake loved the contrast of the colorful rocks set against the deep blue sky, the shades of green from the aspen, blue spruce, lodgepole pine, and ponderosa pine.
Throughout elementary, junior high, and high school years in Greeley, Jake would spend as much time as possible in the hills. Jake still continued to camp with his family, and now had friends who also liked to camp. As Jake was getting older he would hike with his friends, traveling farther distances to remote trails. He also was hiking more strenuous trails and started to cross-country ski and snowshoe. Jake found he loved snowshoeing as much as hiking. The new found love would keep him on the trails all four seasons. He would hike and rock scramble in the dry months, cross-country ski and snowshoe in the winter months.
In 1970, Jake climbed his first Fourteener, a nickname for a 14,000 foot mountain. The lofty mountain, (Longs Peak 14,255′ above sea level) was located near a small tourist town named Estes Park. The town was located at the top of the Big Thompson Canyon fifty miles west of Greeley. Eventually, Jake had eight excursions on Longs Peak, mostly in the 1970’s, with three later in the 1990’s.
In the four years (1970’s) that Jake lived in Colorado, he hiked and climbed several peaks ranging in elevations from 7,000 feet to over 13,000 feet. Longs Peak was the only fourteener he climbed until the 1990’s. Jake lived in Michigan, North Carolina, and Florida in the 1970’s and 1980’s, coming home in 1988. In 1990, Jake joined the Colorado Mountain Club (C.M.C.), where he met various people who shared his interest in nature. Jake and his new found friends spent many hours together exploring all that Colorado had to offer.



Le code des pirates (French Edition)

by Ange Bernard Obiang Nguema

Ce livre raconte l’histoire de Bartholomew Roberts, un célèbre pirate britannique. Durant l’âge d’or de la piraterie, il a capturé plus de 400 navires, en moins de 3 ans. En juin 1719, le navire sur lequel il travaille comme marin est capturé par le pirate Howell Davis. Il est contraint de devenir pirate, mais il fera rapidement ses preuves. Six semaines après sa capture, le capitaine Davis meurt lors d’une en embuscade tendu par les hommes du gouverneur de l’île de Príncipe. Les pirates élisent alors un nouveau capitaine et leur choix se porte sur Roberts, car il a des fortes aptitudes au combat et en navigation. Sa carrière de pirate le mènera ensuite à capturer des navires au Brésil, dans les Caraïbes et en Afrique. Il est reconnu comme étant l’auteur du code des pirates, un code d’honneur que les pirates devaient respecter afin de maintenir une bonne cohésion au sein des équipages. Il trouva la mort le 10 février 1722 près du Cap Lopez, au Gabon lors d’une bataille contre le Swallow, un navire de la Royal Navy commandé par le capitaine Chaloner Ogle. Après sa mort, ses hommes jetèrent son corps à la mer afin qu’il y repose à jamais, car tel était son désir.
