Update GCI Outdoor Master Cook Station

Update GCI Outdoor Master Cook Station

Dinner Prep at Buccaneer State Park in Mississippi

I am not sure how I car camped before I started using the GCI Outdoor Master Cook Station.  I really enjoy how easy it is to set up and the ability to better organize my camp.  The table top is perfect for storage and food preparation.  You can read my full update HERE.

FirePit Rocker Update

FirePit Rocker Update

GCI FirePit Rocker by my campfire

One of the things that makes car camping fun is hanging out around the campfire.  The FirePit Rocker from GCI Outdoor makes hanging out around the campfire even better because it is super comfortable.  I like the ability to lounge with my legs straight out and gently rock back and forth while enjoying a beverage.

First Look – ROVR Colorado RollR 85 Cooler Review

ROVR Colorado RollR 85 Cooler Review

The Colorado RollR 85 fully tricked out.

The ROVR Products RollR cooler started the same way that many ideas do – because of a problem.  Tired of carrying gear from their car to their campsite they thought there had to be a better way, and the RollR cooler was born. ROVR products has an easy to navigate website with videos explaining their products.

I will be reviewing the Colorado RollR 85 in the summer heat of New Orleans and the deep south this summer.  ROVR products calls it “An 85-quart carrying, all-terrain attacking, patented design that can go anywhere you can.”  The RollR 85 retails for $449.

Update: Blackstone Griddle Review

The Blackstone Griddle has performed as advertised.  It is easy to cook on and I like that I can generally cook an entire meal at one time.  Seasoning and cleaning was a bit of a chore at first but has become easier, and the griddle is easily transportable, but maybe not in the way Blackstone envisioned.  Click HERE to read my full update on my Blackstone Griddle Review.

PATH project reviews – Initial thoughts on their running kit

PATH projects reviews

PATH projects Cascade SS T-Shirt courtesy of their website.

PATH projects is a new company formed in 2015 after the founder, Scott Bailey had spent years running but had been unsatisfied with apparel offered by other companies, especially shorts. The foundation of PATH projects is simple – highest quality apparel, direct to consumer and their foundation piece is their layering system for their shorts – a separate liner and short for the perfect combination. They offer liner and regular shorts, short and long sleeve shirts and various hats.  I am reviewing the following items

Tahoe CL 5” baseliner and the Sykes PX short

Cascade SS T-Shirt

Final Update – Native Eyewear Catamount Glasses

Native Eyewear Catamount glasses

Caddying for Birdies for the Brave at the Zurich Classic

I have worn the Native Eyewear Catamount glasses for over 225 miles of golfing, running, hiking and backpacking.  They have performed exceptionally. The visual acuity is clear and crisp; they are so light I forget that I have them on; and I haven’t broke them, so the durability is top notch.  Click HERE to read my final thoughts on this pair of glasses.
