Get Cooking!!!

You are camping. You have been hiking a long rails, shaded by trees and doing your best to avoid the poison oak. Your legs feeling like jelly, you are hungry and you want to eat dinner before you settle inside your tent.

But sometimes, you want more than trail mix for dinner. Maybe you want souvlaki, roast chicken, or even barbecue tri-tip. A full-size oven is a bit too heavy to carry in your backpack.

This is why we offer the Koblenz 4 Burner Gas Stove. It comes with four 16,000 BTU burners, with independently adjustable flames that will allow you to simmer on one burner and broil meat on another burner. And we offer it at 20% off its regular retail price, for a price of

So sit down by the tent, under the stars, with crickets (or your mp3 player) providing music, and enjoy your hot meal.

Be Careful

Hiking is a fun activity, and you get to visit many interesting landmarks, but it has its dangers. We share with you the story of Daniel Nguyen, who died when he slipped 1,500 feet during a hike to Mt. Baldy in southern California.

http://lbpost.com/news/2000008081-csulb-graduate-falls-1-500-feet-to-his-death-when-rescuing-friend-at-mount-baldy-trail

I myself hiked this trail five and a half years ago and know the hazards. Winter even brings more hazards such as ice. I share an excerpt of the article:

A recent Cal State Long Beach (CSULB) graduate fell about 1,500 feet to his death Tuesday morning, while attempting to help a friend slipping on a trail as they hiked up Mount Baldy.

Garden Grove resident Daniel Nguyen, 23, was pronounced dead at 5:16PM on Tuesday, February 2, according to a release from the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner office.

Authorities said Nguyen and two other male friends were hiking in the Devil’s Backbone area of Mount Baldy when he fell down the mountainside in the process of helping his fellow hiker on the trail.

Take care.

Finding Your Way Around

In thru hiking or camping or even just day hiking, finding your way around is very important. There are few road signs on trails. The only landmarks are trees, streams, and mountains. Due to this, you will need equipment to be able to find your way around.

We offer GPS devices like the Garmin GPS72H Hand held GPS. These devices are useful, relying on satellites orbiting from up on high to relay accurate and precise data to help you navigate yourself around. However, GPS devices require batteries, and if you are on a months-long thru hike, you might not want to carry all the spare batteries needed to operate a GPS, in addition to the batteries you would need for flashlights or lanterns.

 

For a device that does not use batteries, we recommend a PPI 2 Inch Diameter Compass. It has a long lanyard that enables hands-free carryin, so you can just take a quick glancwe at it while hiking rather than having to hold it constantly or dig into your backpack to retrieve it. and we are offering 20% off the retail price of $14.12, for a sales price of $11.30.

A Bear Necessity

When hiking, you will almost never be the only creature in the area. There are many different animals, from lizards to squirrels to bighorn sheep. and, of course, in many wilderness areas, there will be bears. And like all animals, bears like food. And there is no avoiding bear country when you do a thru hike on the Pacific Crest Trail, the Continental Divide Trail, or the Appalachian Trail.

Unlike cats and squirrels, bears can tear open sacks and boxes to get the goodies. They can even rip open a car door if they smell food. Many wilderness areas now require the use of bear proof containers.

For your sake and the sake of the bears which live in our treasured wilderness areas, we are proud to offer the Bear Vault BV450 Bear Proof Container. Transparent yet shatterproof, with a patent pending design that allows you to open the lid without tools, and with a 4-day capacity, the BV 450 is an essential when trekking through regions where bears roam freely. And we are proud to offer it for 20% off its regular retail price of $66.95, for a sales price of $53.56. (Sale expires 12/21/2015)

Let There Be Light!

If there is one thing most of you would notice about hiking trails, is that there are no lamp posts. It hardly needs to be written that without lamp posts, it is necessary to have a flashlight or lantern whenever hiking in the evening or camping.

For those of you who casually camp, a flashlight can save up to half an hour when looking for something you dropped on the ground. For those of you who want to thru hike, light is essential. Being able to hike at night can save several days over a thru hike expected to take weeks or even months. For thru hiking long trails such as the Pacific Crest Trail, shaving days off the hike can make the difference between completing the hike and not completing it at all.

There are, of course, many power sources for flashlights, such as Duracell Coppertop AA batteries. But what if solar radiation generated by the fusion of hydrogen atoms can serve as a power source. The Vim Hybrid Solar Powered flashlight uses just that. It charges from any light source, from the summer sun to the desktop lamp. It also has lithium batteries as a backup power source. As an added bonus, it is waterproof and it floats, which is especially useful for you campers and thru hikers. And we are proud to offer this product at 20% off of its normal retail price of $51.61, for a sales price of $41.28. (Sale ends 12/14/2015)
