    These are the shepherd slings I am sending to the 'Mariners Museum ' in Keyport News Va. To be used in thier education department. I am sending a Balaeric stype split pouch sling with leather. Braided with sisal. An African syle sling all jute. Then the Mesoamerican or Central American style sling. Braided with jute and weaved with sisal.

    @Bone thanks. I need to do more videos, still having a problem speaking in front of it. Lol I am donating them. I am all about education and knowledge. I do love passing it around. Expecially if it's something of my interest.

    Cool!! It's in Newport News, VA. I did electrical work when I lived in VA and we did a lot of work at the Museum. It has grown quite a bit since I was there.

    They used to have much more in their archives than on display. I would assume that's still true but I can't say. They have a very nice collection though.

    Hey Ryan
    Great video explaining the different slings. As far as I'm concerned you did very well my friend. Your video skills are improving in leaps and bounds. Well done bud:tu:

    Your slings will be a very welcome addition to the museum. They are lucky to have them. Good on you for donating them bud. Your a gent :tu:

    I will have to take a trip down there one day and check it out. Would be awesome to see who they are using my slings. A few people I know that have actually been to this museum, say it's very nice.
    Hey Clint,
    Thank you. I am still a good distance on where I want to be at with making videos. It's funny, cuz never in my wildest dreams when I started the shop would I ever imagine some going to a museum, or getting included in a primitive living survival school as part of the curriculum

    Thank you. I am not sure where they will have it located at. All I know is that it will be in the education department.
