    Know who to call in case of an outdoor emergency
    All it takes is one second. You’re in the woods -- hiking, mountain biking, perhaps backpacking and camping – and you slip and severely twist an ankle, or worse, break one. You realize you can’t get out on your own. Or, the same happens to your companion, and you don’t want to leave them alone. Perhaps, even, you’re perfectly fine...

    Snowshoes a great tool for adventuring in winter
    The winter woods can be a place of majesty and beauty. One occasion stands out for me. We were hiking on a piece of public land the morning after a heavy snowfall. The way eventually led to a stand of immense evergreens, each tree a century or more old, and correspondingly tall and wide. They were, in spots, packed so...

    First aid kit a critical piece of camping gear
    Sometimes it’s the little things that get you. Take a blister for example. You can plan a campout for months, and spend lots of money on a tent and hiking boots and sleeping bags and all other kinds of gear. But, if you get a blister while hiking the first day – and have no way to deal with it...

    Daypack essentials for outdoor adventure
    There are easier ways to get attention. Sure, you can get lost in the woods for weeks at a time, revert to primitive caveman status in the process and drop dozens of pounds as you survive on nothing more than grubs.

    Lightweight packable backpack makes day hiking trips so much easier
    Sienna Robinson has been a lifelong camper, spending one or two weekends a month in the woods with her family when she was a kid. As she got older and spent more time outdoors, she began going deeper into the wilderness, with day hikes that ended back at her base camp. The backpack she used was huge, but that's because...
