Since 2001 it seems like every year there are more and more rules about what you can and can't bring onto a plane, and it can be hard to keep track of any of it. In fact, for an outdoorsman it can be downright confusing as you're suddenly looking at things like barbed hooks on fishing lures, fillet knives, propane tanks attached to camping stoves. If you're like me at that … [Read more...] about Can You Take a Camping Stove on a Plane?
I've always heard about the chances of being struck by lightning being tiny, but after two close calls in the outdoors, a crazy fishing experience, and meeting someone who lived through getting struck by lightning I started wondering just how uncommon it really was. Was it really a long shot to get struck by lightning, or would be an outdoors freak actually raise my chances up … [Read more...] about How Many People Get Struck By Lightning Outdoors?

There are few ways to see naturally beautiful country while getting great exercise, and getting away from the stresses of everyday life. The first time I had a great pair of men's hiking boots, I was psyched. Over the course of a year I hiked so … [Read more...] about The Best Hiking Boots for Men Reviewed
As good as a sturdy hiking boot can be for a solid day of hiking, especially over uneven ground or particularly challenging trails, sometimes you need something that is less concerned about a hefty weight and heavy duty ankle support that goes above and beyond, but is more about comfort to the foot and lightweight on the lower legs.

One of the things I loved about camping with the Scouts or family while growing up was the food. We knew how to cook, and it's hard to beat a great meal cooked over an open campfire! Plenty of you out there know exactly what I'm talking about. Then again if you … [Read more...] about Paleo Meals To Go Reviewed: Can You Backpack On Paleo?

Yes, hiking hats are definitely a thing. Let's face it: there are many different pieces of gear you need to think about when taking a hike, and while it is true that the list of gear is going to vary greatly between a one-day day hike versus a multi-day, week, or month thru hike. That being said, there are base pieces of gear that are appropriate no matter what type of … [Read more...] about The Best Hiking Hats Reviewed
