The Honest Kitchen Dog Food

Do you take your pet hiking with you?  If its a dog, or a cat (does anyone hike with a cat?) you might want to check out The Honest Kitchen.  They make dehydrated – read ‘lightweight’ pet foods.  I ordered a sample, and want to share what Roxie and I found. Read my review HERE.

Ready for Fall?  I am!  I received the Bogs Plimsoll women’s boot to review, and I was all ready for a typical, wet, Maine fall.  So far, its the driest September in 60 years. I’m actually hoping for some rain very soon, or I may have to go play in the river.  They are the low cut version, coming to a few inches above the top of my ankle.  So far, the boots are comfortable and feel well cushioned.  Read my initial review HERE.

My daughter and I get to review the new Leatherman Leap Multitool.  She’s 12, and I am a bit older.  We both enjoy being outdoors.  She’s in Girl Scouts, and my wife and I help out on many of their adventures.  We’ll be reviewing the knife together over the next few months.  Click HERE to see what we’ve discovered so far.
