It has been a couple of months since I started my 72-Hour kit build, which uses the Bosch Click & Go L-BOXX system to store and organize all of my survival supplies. It was a bit of work in getting all of the supplies together, getting everything organized and publishing the content here on Tool-Rank, but in the end I feel better prepared to handle a disaster of any kind.

Gorilla Glue recently came out with a new single use tube packaging for their original polyurethane Gorilla Glue formula. The idea is that a person that rarely needs the glue can open up a fresh tube for each project; or stash away a tube in a tool box, glove box, tackle box, etc box when a repair calls. We already know the Gorilla Glue polyurethane formula works, but will the new tubes keep the glue fresh?
