Out-toberfest

Out-toberfest

Mid-September is here, and you beer-lovers know what that means: Oktoberfest. Yet for most of us, a two week trip to Munich just isn’t in our budget (maybe if we didn’t spend so much money on beer?). The good news is, you can beat the crowds and save some money...

GSI Cookware 101

If you're a seasoned pro, the only thing scarier than a grizzly in your tent is the thought of a boring meal around the campfire. The best outdoor cuisine starts with choosing the right cookset, but that can feel more complicated than packing for the PCT. A heavy Dutch Oven...

Cannonball Into Summer

Cannonball Into Summer

We’re far from the first people to muse about summer’s magical qualities -- the days stretch on into the evening, the warmer temps give way to exposed skin, the beer flows like wine, and the water is oh so inviting. And if there’s one thing we love about summer, it’s playing on the water! Its hypnotic essence invites adventure and discovery.

Blend Out

Blend Out

If you’ve learned anything from this blog over the last few months, it’s probably that we LOVE partying while we’re out playing in the wild. The easiest way to spice up a leisurely paddle across a lake or loosen up for a competitive game of backwoods bocce ball is to add in an adult beverage. One thing we’ve noticed is that most people stick to basic cans of beer or, once in a while, a mixed cocktail. Those are all fine and dandy for an easy go-to, but if you really want to elevate your wilderness mixology, you need to step it up. Enter the Vortex Blender.

You’ve just spent 45 minutes building a fire, wrapping potatoes in tinfoil, filling that Dutch oven with beautiful, finely chopped veggies and getting everything cooking. The hard part is done. Now, the wait. Instead of just sitting there and drooling while you watch your food cook, give those legs a stretch and bust out a classic camp spot time killer -- yard games!

A Crash Course in Dutch Ovens

A Crash Course in Dutch Ovens

If you've never messed around with a dutch oven before, they can be a bit of a mystery. But once you start cooking with one, you'll never want to go into the woods without one again. Here's a quick crash course so you can level up your outdoor cooking game. Prepare to have your socks rocked off.

Ode to the Parking Lot Beer

Ode to the Parking Lot Beer

I’m only two miles into an 8 mile pedal up the mountain and already I’m dragging. I’ve done this climb dozens of times before, but today my legs are just dragging. Mile marker 3. It feels as if my legs are pushing through wet concrete. Mile marker 4. Halfway there. I try desperately to get my mind to focus on other things. Work projects. A fried chicken sandwich. Beer. And then it clicks -- I’ve got a cooler of beer waiting in my truck at the bottom. Suddenly, mile marker 6, then 7, flies by and I make the final push for the summit.

S'more Than A Feeling

S'more Than A Feeling

Nothing says summer like a campfire in the woods. The crackle of wood, the wafts of smoke and, of course, the sweet, sweet taste of s’mores hitting your lips. Generations of kids and adults alike have been participating in the time-honored tradition of s’mores around the campfire, but few have ventured beyond the standard graham cracker, chocolate and marshmallow, a.k.a. The 1.0.
