There’s one thing you know for certain: you’re looking to get away, get outdoors, and go exploring. But where are you going? Chances are you want to visit a place where the natural world is front and center, which means state parks and national parks are probably your two best options
At a recent Fourth of July celebration, I witnessed a tourist yanking on the low-hanging boughs of a beautiful 100-year-old oak tree in one of our local parks. My friends and I watched in angst, lambasting the man as a disrespectful out-of-towner.
There’s only one drug on this planet that comes free: Adrenaline. At least, that was once the case, until corporate interests put a dollar amount on every cave and mountain out there. Here’s the good news: You can still find amazing experiences, in any location, for pennies on the dollar. All it takes is a little creative thinking.
If you consider yourself an adventure dad, chances are you don’t need a lecture on the virtues of outdoor exploration. But when you’re used to hoofing it through the woods solo or with a group of buddies, you might not be sure how to get the most out of outdoor adventures with your kids.
Camping trips are the ultimate summer getaway – what better way to take advantage of the warm weather than by shedding your responsibilities, sleeping out under the stars, and waking up to a breathtaking landscape, a whole day of your favorite outdoor activities waiting just around the corner (if not closer)?
It’s a bit of a misnomer: Beating the heat. In reality, it’s the one obstacle you can’t naturally overcome; you can’t power through dehydration or heat exhaustion. But you can prepare for the sweltering temps of summer instead of fighting the heat.
Staying fit takes hours of time in the gym — or does it? With the rise of the internet and fitness bloggers, clever ways of combining workouts and outdoor activities are endless. If being outdoors and keeping in shape are both important to you, take some ideas from the following list of common gym alternatives to combine them and save yourself some time.
Among value-conscious outdoor enthusiasts, “accessory” can sometimes sound like a dirty word. But in terms of sunglass care, accessories aren’t just superficial consumables – they’re part of the minimum required for keeping your sunglasses working as effectively as possible, for as long as possible. As a savvy adventurer, you know that extending the lifespan of your gear is the best way to increase its value.
Believe it or not, sunglass color is more than stylistic. Some may choose a blue tint for that perfect Instagram photo, or black lenses for their Matrix cosplay — but these tints are designed with specific benefits. For those who use sunglasses for sports and other athletic events, lenses can be a tool to optimize your performance.
With the summer months fast approaching, you’ll need a pair of sunglasses that are right for you, your needs and, most importantly, your face shape. Believe it or not, the shape of your face is essential when you’re trying to get the right sunglasses for you.
I always find that the best way to relax before a big job interview or business meeting is a short hike through nature. But when you’re traveling from city to city, it can be difficult to find the time.
If you’re looking to spend some time out on the trail – trekking into the woods, along the coastline, across the mountains, or otherwise – you’ve got two basic options: hiking, or backpacking. These two cornerstones of outdoor adventure are extremely similar in their basic essence.
