    Insulated Tumbler Test | 2017

    Insulated pints/tumblers are currently one of the top buys in the outdoor community, and for good reason. They usually come with a leak-resistant top so they’re great for on the go or around the campfire. Most versions are rated to hold the heat (or cold) for many, many, hours.

    Review: 1862 David Walley's Resort | Genoa, NV

    Since purchasing a timeshare week at Grand Lodge on Peak 7 in Breckinridge, Colorado about 6 years ago, we’ve had the opportunity to visit quite a few other timeshare resorts around North America.

LonliestPlaceThumbAt Adventure Insider, we’re always looking to get as far off the beaten path as possible. The team from Overland Journal did just that a few months ago as they trekked to the “Loneliest” place in the United States. They made their way by vehicle then by foot to the furthest point from any incorporated city in the US, in remote southern Utah.

The video is about 23 minutes long and includes several interviews, great scenery, hiking, and of course climbing :)

Pinnacles National ParkFound this over on the REI blog:

Pinnacles National Monument has become the 59th National Park due to legislation signed by President Obama. The popular area is about 26,000 acres and includes great rock formations left over from an ancient volcano. It's a very popular rock climbing destination and features over 30 miles of hiking trails.

AmbitI've been searching for a good, all around exploration/fitness watch for quite some time. My old Timex HR monitor watch has been pretty flakey lately, so it would be nice to have one device that does it all. It was released a while back, but I recently learned about the way you can integrate the Suunto Ambit into not only your adventures, but your workout routine as well.

I'm still on the fence about dropping over $500 on a watch, but if it really does everything it says, and does it well, it may be worth the price.

See the Ambit here.

Time for new skisAs winter starts to swing into gear, now may be a good time to think about new skis for the 12-13 season. REI put together a great little list of things to think about when out shopping for new sticks.

Our list basically comes down to:

  • Budget: We can only afford so much ski, with fuel bills so high from exploring Colorado resorts
  • Features: The feature set will depend on the type of terrain you love and local conditions
  • Skier ability: There is such thing as 'too much' ski
  • Dependability: With a growing family, and many friends that love to ride, our skis don't always stay safe in the Thule rack. Not to mention a rock or two in early season conditions.

REI's post has some great tips to think about.
