All Drifter Products Made With Pride in the USA.

Established in 1977, Drifter Sport and Travel Bags, Inc. began as a parachute rigging business. Our main customers, skydivers, demanded that their parachutes be made of the highest quality material available. Their lives depended on the quality of our products.

Later, the idea to create bags using these materials came to mind. “Who wouldn’t want a bag that is sturdy and durable, but light enough to carry?” And with that, production began and Drifter bloomed. For the last 35 years, Drifter has continually grown and adapted to the changes, as everyone has. But one thing that has not changed, is the desire to create the perfect bags for people everywhere, the kind of product that can prove itself to be sturdy, durable, and lightweight.

Expertly crafted in the Buckeye state, Drifter bags are made with outstanding quality. Styles are pretty amazing, too. There’s a Drifter bag for you whatever your occasion.

I LOVE IT The Drifter Daypack is the best back pack I’ve ever used. (tested from coast to coast – Malibu to Myrtle Beach) Just as claimed, this pack proved to be durable and lightweight. I love the simplistic look. With 2 pockets, it offers uncomplicated handiness for my stuff. Comfortable padded straps fit snug without binding. Hope you’re good at making decisions since it’s available in 24 colors. 


The Drifter Daypack is my “hands-free” favorite.

More Than A Bucket List. Making Your Dreams, Passions, and Faith A Realty.

Toni Birdsong


pages 288

More Than a Bucket List : Making Your Dreams, Passions, and Faith a Reality, Thomas Nelson

Book Description

Fun ideas of things to do, places to see, and ways to make a difference!

Everyone dreams about places to see, people to meet, and things to do in their lifetime. But too often we lose sight of those dreams and get buried in everyday busyness and demands. More Than a Bucket List will inspire you to seize and act on a range of dreams—anything from visiting the Holy Land, donating your time at a soup kitchen, learning to climb a tree, or helping a child learn to read. The book also includes ideas to make lasting memories as you marvel at a new sight, laugh like crazy with an old friend, or change a life.

The compilation of bucket list items is divided thematically and blended with Scripture and personal stories. Pages at the back allow you to write your own bucket list items. Are you ready to finish this life well and start checking off items from your bucket list?

Here is a book that is filled with a list of Christian-minded ideas for your bucket list. It’s a cute hardcover book (6″x 5″) with ideas of things to do and places to go. The “more” part of the title is the bits of inspiration that accompany some of the bucket list ideas. Unfortunately many ideas in the book are costly and I can’t imagine many being able to seriously consider them; however, there are some ideas mentioned that are financially reasonable or even completely free. Silly ideas. Serious ideas. Some ideas I wouldn’t consider as a good suggestion like the “break the rules once in a while” since some of these are not showing good Christian judgement and behavior. But many ideas are good. I’m adding to my bucket list “live 100 percent complaint-free” after I successfully accomplish this thirty day goal. (Colossians 3:12)

Some “my bucket list” pages in the back are provided as a place to record your personal plan of action.

The choices you make,

Determine the roads you take.

My choices affect my life.

My decisions will follow me

All the days of my life.

The question I must ask is simple.

Am I making a decision based on

How I can be a better me

or based on

How I can glorify God in my life?

Last September I did a review for Wrap-N-Mat. A year later, my Wrap-N-Mat wraps still look and work just as good as day one. The amount of plastic bags I could have tossed into the landfill surely would have been staggering if I hadn’t been using a reusable bag.

Wrap-N-Mat is a family owned business that offers a reusable food wrap and place-mat in one. The original wrap, 13″ x 13″, holds food with a Velcro closure and opens completely in an octagon shape. Opening completely, it serves as a place-mat and makes it super easy to keep clean with no crumbs in corners.

The large pouch is 6 3/4″ x 7″ and is designed to hold your contents in a pouch style envelope.  The large pouch can hold an entire quart of strawberries. 

This “Going Green” print is made from organic cotton that’s lined with LPDE food safe plastic. I love that there are so many fabric patterns and colors to choose from. Each member of the family can have their own design; it’s perfect for those who need a safe way to identify a particular snack due to food intolerance or allergies.

Wrap-N-Mat wraps help stop the unnecessary waste in my day-to-day routine as I take strides to greatly reduce my use of the plastic baggie.

I received the Going Green original wrap and the Going Green large pouch from Wrap-N-Mat to help facilitate the writing of an honest review. A positive review is not guaranteed, and all opinions are my own. No other compensation was received.
