Update on the Badger SPF 30 Unscented Face Stick

Badger Face Stick

Even with the record amount of rain we received in Southern California over the past few weeks; I was still able to enjoy a few sunny days in the outdoors protecting myself with the Badger Face Stick. I used the face stick on three long mountain bike rides lasting over four hours and while walking at the beach.

Columbia Bugathermo Techlite boots were provided by Columbia for the purpose of this review.

This past month was very good in terms of weather, timing, and five great hiking days to put these boots through a lot of varied conditions. I hiked in the Carlisle Great Brook Farm, Billerica Forest, and in New Hampshire.

The Pocket Rocket from MSR (a Cascade Designs subsidiary) is not a Japanese motorcycle…however, it is an excellent backpacking stove.  It is said to be the world’s most popular canister stove and I don’t doubt it.  In fact, I bought one myself about 15 years ago and used it several years.  It was the stove I used on a four day hike in the Smokey’s  with my son as well as many other shorter hikes with him and by myself.  To read more click here.
