Hiking is a very safe sport, despite the stories of injuries. What is not understood is the number of hikers who hike and return tired but in good condition. My purpose is pass on some of my half century experience on the trail.  To read more.

Sperry Shock Light II Update

I have been wearing the Sperry Shock Light shoes quite a bit, more as an everyday shoe but enough on and in the water use to evaluate their performance.  In short, I have been extremely impressed with the Shock Light shoes.  But for the in-depth update please click here.

Review by Arnie P      Freescape Camp Kitchen knife provided by Gerber for review purposes.

I never know how a product is going to work for me until I start using it doing the things I normally do. When I started raising my children by myself back in 74.  I soon learned my way around the kitchen. This update on the Gerber Freescale Camp Kitchen knife will focus on using it to prepare my meals. You will notice a small very thin plastic which I use for a cutting board. This is the same board I have been using for years on car camping trips. It is very light and compact and could be used for backpacking. This knife, like most tools, does some jobs exceedingly well and some not so well, probably why a chef has several knives to choose from. In this review I will go into detail on the operation of the Gerber Freescape Camp Kitchen knife on a variety of vegetable and fruit.  To read more.

Chimani National Parks App

Chimani National Parks App

How many National Parks have you visited?  I’ve been to a few, and am hoping to see a few more this summer.  I live within a few hours of Acadia National Park in Maine, and am planning on spending some time there this summer.  I recently received the Chimani National Parks app, for review purposes and have been playing ‘arm chair’ traveler ever since.

My goal is to visit Acadia, Cuyahoga and Canyonlands National Parks this summer.  Right now, I’m starting to plan for Acadia.  In the first part of the review, I’ll explain the features of the app and then the actual plans and trip in the follow up reviews. I will say, these guys have put a LOT of features in this app.  Read the first part HERE.

balega Hidden Comfort and Dry socks Review by Coy Starnes
Test items provided by balega

I will be testing 2 different socks, the belega Hidden Comfort and Dry socks.  They are both from the Hidden line but they are pretty much on opposite ends of the spectrum as far as socks go.  I am not sure what the Hidden line means exactly, but all socks in this line are low cut socks, but not the supper low ones I classify as invisible.
