What to Put in Your Hiking Backpacks

Having provisions for yourself is important when you go on a hike. A lot of things can potentially go wrong on a hike. You could simply step on a rock the wrong way and twist your ankle or you could fall down a ravine and get stuck somewhere. Either way, there are a lot of […]


Buying My First Backpacking Backpack

This year I have been working really hard on taking my hiking adventures to a whole new level. One of my older brothers has always gone on long backpacking trips with his friends and this year they invited me along. I had never been on a backpacking trip before but I wanted to make sure […]


What I Keep in My Hiking Backpack

If you’re planning on going on a long, strenuous hike, it’d be worth your while to ensure that you have prepared yourself for the hike. I don’t necessarily mean by training for it or anything like that; I simply think that it’s a good idea to be prepared with the items you bring along with […]


Having the Right Hiking Gear is Important

Hiking can be a very fun hobby for the whole family to enjoy; it can be a leisurely activity that’s a great experience for everyone. It can also be challenging and harrowing and potentially dangerous. It really just depends on the places that you are choosing to go hiking at. Certain areas for hiking are […]


Equipped with a Hiking Stick

Hiking is something that I really like to do with my girlfriend on the weekends. We like to go to all different types of places and try our hand at hiking there; sometimes the hike is leisurely and not difficult at all, while other hikes can be grueling and extremely challenging. Depending on the type […]


A Hiking Staff to Help Make Hikes a Little Bit Easier

I have always been a huge klutz, which means that putting me out on a forest trail is one of the most dangerous things that you can do. If I am not tripping over roots, then I am sure to be crashing into the nearest tree or almost falling off the side of the trail. […]


Exasperated Parent Buys Internal Frame Backpack

I don’t know what my eleven-year-old daughter does to her school backpack, but we have gone through three this school year alone. The third one was even from the camping section of the store rather than the school supplies area, so one would presume it would be a little tougher. But apparently Harry Potter books […]


Not Just a Canteen – a Hydration System

Hydration is a very important thing, as I realized anew this weekend to my chagrin, because I had a stomach bug or something. But even when you’re not sick, water is the most important part of your intake. Fluids are often the first line of defense for everything from weight loss to sunstroke treatment. So […]


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 […]
