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.

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

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.

Final Update Epson ProSense 57 GPS Watch

Epson watch

Relaxing at camp

I have used the Epson watch another couple of months with an additional 250 plus miles of usage on the watch in addition to every day usage.  I used the watch while running two marathons – and the battery life last the whole race even though I was pushing 5 hours and 30 minutes at the Oklahoma City Marathon.  The durability continues to be excellent.  Overall, I like the watch – Click HERE for my final thoughts.
