FirePit Rocker Update

FirePit Rocker Update

GCI FirePit Rocker by my campfire

One of the things that makes car camping fun is hanging out around the campfire.  The FirePit Rocker from GCI Outdoor makes hanging out around the campfire even better because it is super comfortable.  I like the ability to lounge with my legs straight out and gently rock back and forth while enjoying a beverage.

Update: Blacksheep boxers by SAXX

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.

Initial Thoughts on the GCI Outdoor Master Cook Station

One of the great things about car camping is that you can bring everything and the kitchen sink, but the problem is that most State Parks only have a picnic table which limits space to store everything.  GCI Outdoor thinks they have fixed the lack of storage space with their Master Cook Station.  The Master Cook Station is a foldable table with multiple levels of flat space to store and organize everything for a car camping adventure.  Click HERE to read my initial thoughts.

I have put another 80 miles on the Salewa Mountain Trainer boots since my last update hiking in the mountains of Virginia and the swamps of Louisiana.  These boots have easily handled all the terrain I encountered while protecting my feet.  Click HERE for my final thoughts.

I am always intrigued by unique races. I was searching the internet for races and I saw that Q50 Races put on a sunset half marathon in Grand Isle, Louisiana and I thought to myself I needed to check out this race.  Well, a year after I found out about the race, I had the chance to run it.  Click HERE for my full report.
