Weekend Outdoor Reads highlights some of the most interesting content that I’ve come across, this week, from around the web. This week, I’m reaching back a bit, since I was out of town and missed Ryan Dionne’s post on GearJunkie.com about some of the unconventional outdoor gear that he came across at the Outdoor Retailer show, in Salt Lake City. I’ve got a bunch of good stuff this week, so grab a cup of coffee and enjoy this week’s best outdoor content.
There’s always some cool new gear introduced at the Outdoor Retailer show and this new Flip N’ Drip™ coffee maker from Brunton® is one that really caught my eye. Heat up water on your stove using the bottom section, put your coffee in the filter (orange center section), screw-on the cap (which doubles as a mug) and flip it over for a fresh mug of drip coffee.
Free is always a good price, and if you camp and hike in the Meadowlands then there’s no reason not to order this great looking guide from the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission
One of my regular stops on the Internet, lately, has been the CEJCamping Blog. Check out the series they’ve been running on the “ten essentials” for some good information on what to carry, any time you venture into the backcountry.
Another great blog I’ve been reading lately is The Mighty Sparrow, which is all about great places to see in California. Those of you who don’t live in California might wonder why the heck anyone would want to put up with all this traffic and our high cost of living. Well, take a few minutes to browse through The Mighty Sparrow and you’ll see some of the best that California has to offer.
