When you've been hiking or backpacking for hours, nothing tastes better than an ice-cold glass of water. I found this out the hard way when I went kayak camping on Lake Powell in Arizona a few years ago. Despite placing dry-ice in my cooler, my water was warm before my adventure was over.
Every woman knows that if you are going to build a wardrobe the first piece of clothing to purchase is the "little black dress.” For those who enjoy the outdoor lifestyle, the first piece you should have in your backpack or travel duffle is the “little black vest”.
Don't you love it when folks stop by your tent to ask about that "cool gear"? One of the many benefits of working at Travel Country Outfitters in Orlando, Florida, is access to all the newest gear and technology.
In the summer of 2012, I got my first job working for an outdoor store in Utah. As part of the team, I received an Outdoor Research Ferrosi Jacket but I hadn't heard of the OR brand until then. I decided to do some “research” on my own and learned the company had been making adventure gear since 1981. OR has created many award-winning products including Lodestar Gloves, Seattle Sombreros, Crocodile Gaiters, and the Sombriolet sun hat, just to name a few.
Let's face it, Hobie is the world leader when it comes to building kayaks that paddle (and pedal) true and glide long. Once you try a Hobie, you'll be hooked on the quality and committment to planning and design. All that quality comes with at a price, but the New Hobie Mirage Passport tears down that barrier! It comes well equipped for $1,299.
I can barely contain my excitement as I'm driving down one of the forgotten backroads near Orlando, Florida. I'm on my way to test the new 2019 Hobie Outback at the Black Hammock Nature Preserve. I've heard about all the changes and improvements Hobie has made, and now I get to experience them for myself.
The closest national park we have to Orlando is the gorgeous Canaveral National Seashore. But it's as flat as flat can be and I wanted some elevation change, so last month I went with three friends to the majestic Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains. Over the years, the government has added more and more land from that area to the public treasury, forming two massive parks adjacent to one another, forming one big super-park. Sequoia, interestingly, was the nations second-oldest national park, after only Yellowstone.
We followed our Big Green Eggspert, Gary, out to his house for him to show us his favorite Big Green Egg shortcuts and tips.
Gary, Travel Country Outfitters' resident Eggspert shares Eight Must-Have Accessories (aka Eggcessories) that each new Big Green Egg cook in Orlando should have.
Are you looking at the Big Green Eggs and not sure which is best for you? Maybe you're in college, torn between the Mini and the MiniMax or you're not sure if your small family needs the Large or the XL
