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
I went snowboarding the winter of 2006 and then moved to Florida late summer of the following year. I knew Orlando was far from mountains I could ride, but I figured I’d get out to those places soon enough. I was wrong. I went once in the next decade and I thought I’d never get to ride regularly again until I moved elsewhere.
I’ve never had headphones that are good to work out in. And it’s not because I didn’t try. Either they were uncomfortable, didn’t stay in my ears well, the cords got tangled as I ran, or (if you really want to know) got sweaty in the Orlando humidity. (Thanks, Florida.)
Tooling around Orlando, Florida I typically don’t need a whole lot of backcountry gear, but one thing I always use is a backpack. I carry mine almost everywhere. And the Mystery Ranch Urban Assault is the most interesting, fun backpack I’ve ever owned. It’s extremely durable, fits the body well, has many compartments, and has the oddest (yet functional) zipper. Let’s break it down:
I’ve been using water filtration systems for almost two decades and I’ve seen pretty much everything in the market.

If you read more of my blogs, you’ll notice a pattern about me and cold weather. I live in Orlando, Florida because I really hate being cold. That’s why I love the Arc’teryx Atom AR Jacket; it lets me love the mountains. I took the Arc’teryx Atom AR to the Grand Tetons back in May. Forgetting that May in Wyoming is nothing like May in Florida! In Florida, in the month of May, the population doubles from tourists seeking refuge in the warmth. In Wyoming, in the month of May, kayak rentals are closed because the water is still dangerously freezing.
