Back to Basics Pt. 9 | Rucas Fanfic

Riley Matthews lived in NY for the majority of her childhood. That is up until 6th grade when her father was offered a job in sunny California, which he accepted. Riley was forced to leave behind everything she knew, her school, her teachers and her small group of best friends. Fast forward 5 years where Riley and her family decide it’s time to move back home. Now a junior in high-school Riley has to figure out where she belongs after being gone for so long.

Chapter 9 - “Tie-dye & Kisses”

He couldn’t even look at me. Riley thought to herself as she took the elevator to her floor. He broke up with me in his car and he didn’t even have the decency to look me in the eye when he did it.

She was surprised by her reaction. When he said he “couldn’t do this anymore” she just closed his door and walked away. Told herself not to look back, and she didn’t. Instead of crying or getting angry, she felt numb. It was almost like it wasn’t real.

She opens the front door and sees her parents and brothers, sitting at the table having dinner.

“Hey Riles, we saved you some.” Josh says holding up a plate.

“I had some takeout at Charlie’s…I’m just going to go to bed.” She walks by them, ruffles Auggie’s mop of curls and heads into her room.

She doesn’t bother turning on the light. She just kicks off her boots, slips off her clothes and climbs into bed ready for the day to be over.

In the morning she still feels numb. She takes a shower and eats breakfast with her family because she knows Lucas won’t be waiting outside their coffee place to pick her up.

Ru Titley kit markers in use .

Andrew from http://valleydeepmountainhigh.tumblr.com twin Brother recently completed a Help for Heroes Saharan challenge which included trekking one of the worlds highest sand dunes .

Fitted to his Hill People Gear pack he choose to fit a mini sawn- off Strip -lights (top of pack in first pic )  which he had asked to be prototyped and fitted to the sides a red and green 10 hour mini chem- light holder  as kit markers both of which helped him to keep a tab on his pack in the sever sand storms they encountered .

I made up this SOLAS ‘strip-light'  yesterday to fit onto standard size 4 inch loop tape commonly found on packs, pouches and jackets to give the user a larger surface area of glint n glow .

The design is similar to my Mark 4 SOLAS / GITD markers in that it uses x3 GITD dots that fit behind the main SOLAS panel allowing the user to change or add combinations of different glint or glow tapes to suit their needs .

Ive recently being playing around trying to find a use for these interesting high visibility glint sticks .

Technically its a 3M silver reflective stick that’s designed to attach to pushbike spokes so the rider can be seen In the dark by passing cars and street lights .
They glint almost white when exposed to any light source and are highly reflective , the 2nd pic is from about 50 feet away .

So I started out by cutting some up and fixing on to para cord , shock cord etc for EDC use  and stashing small items like mini fire steels which makes for an interesting handle .

I then had the idea to use them as markers that can either be pushed into ground or hung on type1vest cord loops , both shown are early prototype versions and currently have a new idea for them which is still a work in progress ,once its finished I’ll be sending them out to for testing .

Prototype Enhancement .

A possible enhancement of my Kirinite glow kit marker is to add on various versions of my MK 3 Glint & Glow personal markers .

These can attach using standard kydex Philips screw hardware or field - friendly Chicago screws and can carry up to x4 MK 3 markers  which can be used as ‘bread crumb’ trail markers or to mark specific locations or kit.

 As the markers are double sided it gives the user a multitude of different combinations depending on needs and can be made up in Cyalume Cyflect , 3M  reflective SOLAS / orange reflective or even IR combinations should the need arise .

Will be on test real soon .

Out and about today on the Jurassic coast to test out a pimped up Brasher hiking / photography pole .

I personally think with all these markers on its a little over the top but I wanted to make sure there were no issues with any of them so just screwed them all on for the test .

SSS.

SOLAS Saw Strip-light.

Just a bit of fun to see what different scissors do to the tapes I generally work in .

The SOLAS tape with its smaller hexagons is easier to cut than the textured Cyflect and gives a saw tooth effect , joining two or more together to make different shapes can also be done .

Glow Oreo 2 .

 The second version of my Glint &Glow Oreo (named after the famous cookie ) features x2 standard MK4 hook velcro backed markers.

  Seen here with one refrotreflective/ GITD cyflect marker and one IR reflective marker  and a central double sided loop velcro  base station that forms the cream filling between the bisciut  halves .  can be used as a kit marker or zip pull , but allows both sections to be removered for use else where if needed .

Trit Armor.

Etched and stone-washed steel reinforcing armor over the top of 2 Firefly tritium kit markers and the wire gear rings have also been stone-washed after brass blackening .

The armor looks pretty cool but also adds a level of protection to the poly-carbonate casing preventing them from being scratched in key ring use and as these are currently in use with a law enforcement officer will probably see some hard use .
