I am trying to become one of those people that doesn’t “need” her things but until then I am a tech/gear junkie at heart and I love my toys. But if I had to choose a select few items that I could not live without in the city, on the trail or on the road I would chose these items with no regrets!
Here they are in no particular order >>
I love keeping track of the small details along a hike, or a camping trip that I would otherwise forget once I got home. The Adventure Log is designed to help you remember all those amazing trips and expeditions in your life. Each page has callouts for the Location, Date, and Conditions of your trip, along with a spot for Companions and a large Notes section for all you want to remember. Fill out the pages during your vacations, camping trips, and other outings, and you’ll be left with a lifetime of memories. No adventure would feel complete without a log book along for the notes I have to jot.

The USB rechargeable battery provides up to 52 hours of light or a charge to your phone.

This stove is all you need! we use it in the backcountry, on road trips, camping in the forest– it has the fastest boil time on the market and with sturdy handles it is a breeze to eat or drink a cup of coffee. A push button ignitor makes using the stove fast and efficient. We like the size because its big enough to boil water for two people yet small enough to still be light heading down the trail in your pack.
