Now that autumn temperatures are here, I’m craving cozy clothing items to wear both at home and one the road.

You don’t have to be a regular water sports person to have a pair of gloves for your water-based adventures. Whether your chosen favorite is paddling, boating, or fishing, the constant sun exposure, abrasion injuries, and occasional fishhook puncture can turn a fun time in the outdoors into a reason to avoid it next time.…

By Jill / September 4, 2020 /

It’s hard to be on top of things in the morning, and even after coffee, making a healthy breakfast sometimes gets pushed to the “next time” wish list as you grab a banana and head out the door. When you’re traveling, it can be even more difficult to scout out the places where you can…

By Jill / August 28, 2020 /

As we approach fall, I’m cleaning out my gear shed. It’s tempting to hang onto things that perform well, but my focus going forward are items that are excellent in a variety of situations so I’m not hauling around a number of things that I don’t really need. One of the items that’s staying is…

Summer’s nearly over, and its peak, back in June, is long past. As daylight time shortens and the weather begins to change, it’s time to start thinking about baselayers. Take a look through your tried-and-true baselayers from the past few winters. Do they still fit? Do they have holes? Can they carry you through another…

Stay Afloat with Mustang Survival Khimera Dual Flotation PFD

By Jill / August 14, 2020 /

When you’re on vacation, spending time on the water usually comes with the equipment necessary to be safe. Rentals for boats, kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) tend to include personal flotation devices, also known as PFDs or lifejackets. But not all outfitters keep their gear up to snuff, and you might be getting a…

Maybe you were in a scouting program as a kid, or perhaps you’ve watched every single wilderness survival reality TV show—and yet, you still rely on matches when you go camping. While matches speed the process of getting your campfire going, they’re not always reliable. They might get soggy. You might lose them. And then,…

Peak Design Travel Tripod

Save Space and Lighten Your Bag with the Peak Design Travel Tripod

By Jill / July 24, 2020 /

Traditional tripods weren’t built for travel. They’re heavy, they’re bulky, and they can be a little fragile. Those aren’t qualities to make a traveler happy. Someone needed to rethink the tripod for a more varied lifestyle. While not all travel photographers may want to pack a tripod on their adventures, those who do should check…

Whether you’re perpetually on the road or rediscovering your home territory, it’s essential to have a tried-and-true rain jacket.
