What a Great Idea – the Coleman Dual Fuel Lantern

Have you ever been camping and you ran out of propane or whatever fuel you used for your lantern and your camp stove or whatever? Or you had to choose between the camp stove and the lantern because you didn’t have enough fuel for both? I have, and it’s a pain in the neck, because […]


Hey, Boo Boo! Browning Yellowstone Sleeping Bag!

Yeah, yeah, Jellystone, I know. But I had to do it. I love that Browning names its sleeping bags after famous places to camp; I think that’s pretty cool. Or very warm, as the case may be. So the one named McKinley is good down to 0 Fahrenheit, the Klondike keeps the sleeper warm down […]


Hiking with a Waterproof Bag

I enjoy hiking in the rain. I realize that may sound strange to some people, but it is true. I don’t like to hike when it is hot and sunny. It just makes me feel sweaty and gross. I much prefer hiking with the rain falling onto my face and soaking my hair. It’s like […]


Helpful Hiking Daypacks

I remember hiking, back when I had energy and time (because now I’m overweight, a mother of three, a full-time employee and a full-time student). I enjoyed it at the time, and as soon as I have my Bachelor of Science in Communications (just a few more months!) I will be able to carve out […]


On a Mission with a Hiking Stick

I have gone on some really intense hikes in the past. Never have I brought along some sort of stick to aid me in my journey. I have always found it easier to scramble up cliff sides without a stick to get in my way. However, I understand that there are some trails where going […]


Hail the Foldable Hiking Stoves

To me a hiking stove (or backpacking stove, if you prefer) differs from a camping stove in that it is a lot lighter weight. After all, when hiking, you usually have to carry all your gear in with you, and because water and fuel are fairly heavy, you want to save weight where you can, […]


Super Accurate Sighting Compass

I have a compass. I’ve had it for (gulp!) 35 years, since I was a ten-year-old Girl Scout learning the ways of the woods and earning a badge for hiking. I kept it for sentimental value – as a suburbanite I don’t have much current use for it – and when I saw a need […]


Souvenir of Inexpensive Compact Binoculars

Any time my family went on a trip, my sister and I would be given a certain amount of money to spend on souvenirs. It was always great to have vacation money, because we could get the weird things that we wanted during these trips. Most of the time, these items would be small toys […]


My Father’s Bushnell Binoculars

My father has always been big on the outdoors. He loves to go hiking in the mountains and see all of the landscape around him. He especially enjoys being able to look at birds and other wildlife. When he is hiking, it is not always easy to get a glimpse of these creatures up close. […]


Specialty Backpack

My daughter’s an outdoor person. She loves to go hunting and camping with friends and loved ones. Because of this fondness to excitement, I decided to gift her with something she’ll love the most. It’s a specialty backpack that she’s never had before. I got one that’s black in color. This way, it won’t get […]
