Since the last update, I have used the Salewa Pedroc backpacking and camping in Virginia, while volunteering at winter ultra races, and for every day hiking and general wear in New Orleans.

I have sensitive eyes, and sunglasses are a necessity. I am always on the lookout for sunglasses that I can wear for multiple sports such as running, hiking, fishing that still look stylish for wear around town. I will be reviewing the Native Eyewear Catamount Sunglasses over the next few months to see if they meet the requirements to be added to the gear quiver. Click HERE for my initial thoughts.
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.
Holiday Lake 50k is one of the oldest ultras in the Mid-Atlantic Region. I planned to run it this February, but an Achilles injury sidelined me for the race, so I volunteered to help with an aid station.
