Road Trip Preparations: How to Keep Food Cold on the Road

Trying to find ways to keep food cold on the road is a challenge. There are many options for coolers and portable refrigerators out there but most of them are pretty pricey. In this video, I talk about my new cooler purchase and how it is a pretty good value for the money.

Gander Mountain Guide Series Hiking Shirt

I recently purchased a new hiking shirt and I am pretty excited about it. It is so much more comfortable than the cotton shirts I had been using. Much more breathable. I wanted to pass along this recommendation.

The One80 Light

I backed this product on Kickstarter a few months ago and recently received it in the mail. This headlamp is pretty awesome if i do say so myself. I like the fact that no bear can sneak up from the side of me while I am night hiking. I will be able to see him coming. I also like the fact that it is so light and flexible. I like this so much better than a traditional light. I plan on using this one for a long time. You can watch the video here: The One80 Light

Outad Camp Chair

Finally got around to reviewing my Outad camp chair. Now the main reason i got this chair initially was because of the fact that I know it will hold up to 330lbs and most of the other ones I looked at could not hold as much. But then also, it folds down pretty small and weighs just under 2 lbs itself. I have used it for a while now and really like it. It is pretty comfy and sturdy as long as you don’t rock back and forth in it You can watch the video here: Outad Camp Chair

Marmot Aspen 2p Tent Review

This weekend I went camping in the North Carolina mountains and got a chance to try out my new Marmot Aspen 2P tent. This tent is light, easy to set up and tear down, and held its own against the mountain winds and snow. I would highly recommend this tent to anyone.
