Update Epson ProSense 57 GPS Watch

Update Epson ProSense 57 GPS Watch

Woodlands Conservancy hike with Mia

I have used the Epson ProSense 57 watch for over 400 miles worth of adventuring and it has performed well.  It is easy to operate and does a nice job of tracking my hiking and running activities.  Durability seems solid.  The only nit pick is the battery life.  Click HERE to read my full update.

Final Update gosh! Dripo Cold Brew Coffee System

Dripo Cold Brew Coffee

gosh! Dripo Cold Brew Coffee System

I have used the Dripo Cold Brew Coffee System over the past couple months to make my morning coffee and my husband has taken the Dripo system backpacking and car camping.  The system took a little bit to learn, but once I figured it out, I had great cold brew coffee.  Click HERE to read my review.

Update on the Salewa Mountain Trainer Boot

Salewa Mountain Trainers after 50 plus miles of use

I have put over 50 miles on the Salewa Mountain Trainer Boot in the past month exploring the swamps and forests of the Southeastern United States. The boots eat up muddy and rooty trails with ease and provide plenty of ankle protection.  Read on for my full thoughts by clicking HERE.

Final Update High Sierra Pathway 70L backpack

High Sierra

Starting out on my Black Creek Trail thru hike

I have used the High Sierra Pathway 70L on one additional backpacking trip, a 40 mile trip covering the length of the Black Creek Wilderness.  The pack has performed admirably and continues to remain fairly durable.  Read on for the rest of my thoughts.

Update – High Sierra Pathway 70L

High Sierra Pathway 70

Author hiking in the Black Creek Wilderness

I have used the High Sierra Pathway 70 backpack on a couple of backpacking trips and on training hikes over the past few months.  The pack’s performance has been good.  The fit of the pack has been easy to dial in, and thus far I have had no durability issues with the material, buckles, zippers or straps.  It is a traditionally designed internal frame pack and I have felt comfortable with the layout and my ability to store and access my gear.  My only nitpick at this point is that it is a hot pack that does not allow for much air flow on contact points like my back, shoulders and hips.  Read on for my full update! 

Country Archer Jerky Update

Country Archer

Country Archer Meat Bar Black Creek Wilderness

I ran the gamut of emotions for this review: amazing, happy, satisfied, and sad.  The beef jerky from Country Archer has been used backpacking in Mississippi, as a snack during Mardi Gras Parades, and as refueling after running a 50k race in Mississippi.  The product is amazing and left me happy and satisfied, but sad when I went on my latest backpacking trip in the Black Creek Wilderness and realized all I had left was a couple of the Herb Citrus meat bars and had eaten the rest of the jerky.
