Follow along as I review the Showers Pass Apex Merino Tech T-Shirt.  It arrived just in time for some hot and muggy Alabama summer weather.  It feels so soft and comfortable it’s hard to believe it has any wool in it.   To read my initial impressions please click here.

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.

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.

The Oboz Men’s Bridger Mid B-dry hiking boots were provided by for review.

Oboz Men’s Bridger Mid B-dry hiking boots

This report is several days late. I could not get my gout swollen foot to fit into my boots. The weather has been unpredictable for this time of the year, going from hot and humid to hot and dry, then the next day the temperature drops to 50 F and rain. I was in Harold Parker for three of the Wednesday group hikes. I used the Oboz boots while I planted my garden. Then I had the job of maintaining my yard after a winter that damaged a lot of trees and shrubs. When the rest of the equipment was replaced in the gym, it was time to test my boots again. Also time for the last word on tying the boots. To read more please click here.

 

Update: Blacksheep boxers by SAXX

Blacksheep boxers by SAXX

Enjoying the view from the observation tower at Grand Isle State Park.

I have worn the Blacksheep boxers by SAXX while hiking around Southeastern Louisiana and camping on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  The boxers are super comfortable and seem to be durable and, most importantly, smell-free even after several consecutive days of wear.  Click HERE for my full update.

Update Helle Bleja Knife

Making breakfast in Grand Isle LA

I have carried the Helle Bleja knife daily over the past couple of months in addition to carrying it while hiking and camping across southeastern Louisiana and the Gulf Coast of Mississippi.  The knife has remained sharp and easy to use whether I am cutting line to make new guy outs for a fly or slicing cheese and venison links while making dinner.
