Camino! Four friends. 240 kilometers. 8 days and TacQM

Camino! Four friends. 240 kilometers. 8 days and TacQM Written by Esthe 'Pilgrim' Pretorius   Three friends and I planned to do part of the Portuguese Camino over Easter time 2018  The route was from the Portuguese city, Porto, all the way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, ending our 240 kilometer journey in the Chapel of Santiago on Easter Sunday.  According to the author of our guidebook, “A Pilgrims guide to the Camino Portugués” by John Brierley, there are many pilgrim paths to Santiago but none is more significant and soulful than the Camino Portugués.  They say if you...

A Dark night of Beekeeping, Dust.  Hollow Points, Retention and SAPS

 A Dark night of Beekeeping, Dust.  Hollow Points, Retention and SAPS The scene: It is a cold and dark winter’s night on the Highveld about 3 weeks ago. I am about 35km south of Jhb Central.  A good friend and I have been maintaining a set of beehives we have at our shooting range. It is an extremely rewarding hobby. Best done in the dark with the use of red headlamps and the correct attire. (Nonetheless I have been stung a few times, more about that later) As is tradition we end the nights work with a beer. As cold...

www.tacqm.co.za Prepping….

www.tacqm.co.za Prepping…. I personally do not like the term. I blame Nat Geo and the show Doomsday Preppers.

Customer Tales.......

Customer Tales: www.tacqm.co.za has some interesting customers. Some a lot more interesting than others though. I usually give another Man/Women (Insert gender appropriate noun, verb or adjective) their due when they tell a tall tale. Perhaps this is a weakness of mine which may be defined as naivety, however I have heard some real interesting stories, and, I love good stories; who doesn’t? Below are some stories that I recall from customers, obviously for OPSEC* reasons I will not identify the customer or betray their confidence. So if I am vague on details it’s either to protect the privacy of...

A Bug out..........

A Bug out..........

Time 0500. Still dark when I grab my Bug Out Bag from the back of my car. Bag weighs about 15kg. I had not checked the contents for months…… And that was the point of the exercise. To test my own preparation for a just in case scenario. I work about 30km from home, and with all the student protest, infrastructure decay and of course notorious Gauteng traffic, it is not inconceivable that I would have to walk home one day.  In fact many many South Africans walk 5km or more to work and school everday! Also: working for www.tacqm.co.za customers often...
