Product Review – Contact Lens Solution

This may sound like a strange product to review and I wouldn’t have given it much thought myself until I ran into a bit of a dilemma camping. I use Clear Care contact lens solution. Over the years my eyes have become very sensitive and the Bausch and Lomb solution I used for over ten [...]

Product Review – Lowa Renegade GTX Women’s Boot

The Lowa Renegade GTX Women’s boot were my boot of choice to hike the Sierras this summer. I have traditionally gone between Chaco sandals and Mukluks. When my Mukluks fell apart after three great years of use I needed a new boot. I knew I was going to be in tough terrain, so I decided [...]

Product Review – Sleeping Warm

I am a cold sleeper. In 30 degree temps I need a 0 degree sleeping bag. On my latest trip I was worried about being cold. There’s nothing worse than not getting a good night’s sleep because you can’t get warm. So I used a three part layering system. I started with my Mountain Hardware [...]

HikingPoles

Product Review – Black Diamond Trail Back Trekking Poles

A gear review recently rated the Black Diamond Ultra Distance Z-Pole Trekking Poles as their top rated poles, but the cost of $149.00 was more than enough to make me cringe when I was looking for new hiking poles along with a lot of other gear. Leki is probably a better known company for hiking [...]

ThermaRest

Product Review – Therm-a-Rest

Therm-a-Rest is probably the best known company when it comes to air mattresses for camping. The lightweight mattress combined with durability makes these a must-have for any camper. I have been using Therm-a-Rest since I started camping. My brother bought it for me as a birthday present for my first season in Yosemite National Park [...]

Product Review – North Face Tadpole

While I am generally not a fan of carrying the weight of a tent, sometimes you need the shelter. This was the case spending a month in rain, snow and hail in the Sierras. Your life can really depend on being able to stay warm and dry. I’ve had the same North Face tent for [...]

AlmaPack2

Product Review – Ruff Wear Palisades Pack

Alma Rose (my dog) visited the Sierra Nevada for the first time with me in May for a month long back country excursion. She had never before worn a pack (aside from breaking it in before the trip) and because she is such a tall narrow dog, I often have a hard time finding harnesses [...]

Product Review – Freeze Dried Foods

Packing to go camping for a long period of time boils down to weight issues. How much food can you take with the least amount of weight? It’s because of this that campers take to freeze dried foods and cut the loafs of bread and heavy jars of peanut butter. Every ounce counts. I like [...]

saladDressing

Product Review – Cindys Kitchen Organic Salad Dressings

I lived in Steamboat Springs for 9 years. There is a City Market and an Albertsons. We have two health food markets downtown, but nowhere near the selection of Wild Oats or Whole Foods. When I moved to Santa Fe several months ago, I was in heaven. I am in love with blue cheese dressing [...]

Chacos

Product Review – Chacos

I have worn my Chacos up fourteeners and around the block and out with friends. They pretty much go on my feet as soon as I take my winter boots off and don’t really come off until my toes start to get too cold.
