Chalk It Up!

You’re working on a bouldering problem, twisted up into a gravity-defying pretzel with your toes gripping holds on the wall and the ceiling, reaching for the next hold which is just centimeters beyond your grasp. With superhuman effort you make contact, your hand tightens around the hold — and then your sweat-slicked fingers slip right off the hold and you fall. When you’re climbing, you need chalk. Chalk dries your more »

Paracord and Survival Bracelets

Paracord and Survival Bracelets

It comes in many colors and goes by many names: paracord, parachute cord, 550 cord. Whatever name you call it by, paracord is very useful.

Camping with Dogs

Camping with Dogs

We talked about camping with babies; the other kind of dependent creature with special needs that you’re most likely to camp with is your dog. Dogs make great camping companions. They get excited about everything, they don’t complain, and at the end of the day they’ll just flop down and keep you company.
