Happy Earth Day!

In an ideal world, you've bought indestructible stuff that's never going to die and stay with you until you're 80. But, if you're like me, you tend to trip on things in a spectacular faceplant that sends you wrapping around trees after a few stumbles, tumbles, and flips. When you get lucky you take others down with you in a pile of laughter without actually breaking anything. Others may call it clumsiness, I call it Skill.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, instead of buying replacement stuff get yourself some useful skills: get crafty and fix what you've mucked up in the fall:

Fix your bike:
Repair bicycles
Mountain Bike repair
Bicycle Tutor

Fix your torn clothing:
How to mend clothes
10 Clothing Fixes Everyone Should Know

Repair your damaged tent (Because it happens, and it usually involves a setup disaster or some middle-of-the-night bathroom break half-awake haze.)


Timely update: Treehugger just posted a link about Fixing things too. Great minds think alike!
