February has been a very busy month for us! We started it off with a great trip to Aqua Caliente with Triple B Adventures, a great San Diego based non-profit focused on getting veterans and active duty military members out camping, hunting, fishing and hiking.
Cigars on the trail! There are many items a person may carry when venturing out into the great outdoor. Some of them for survival and others for enjoyment, but all of them add up to weight on your back.
This month we went to Shot Show in Las Vegas. But being the outdoor adventure types that we are, we couldn't just take the normal routes that most take to get from San Diego to Las Vegas. We took the super scenic route.
If the battle to stay hydrated on the trail wasn’t difficult enough, winter brings on its own unique challenges. For many of us southern California types, we often decide to change up our hikes and camping trips and we love to challenge ourselves. That challenge this time of year often involves mountains and the snow.
"I began looking for a quality vest on line in both fit and function. I am not a small man so my search often includes a couple of X’s in the size, nor am I going to lie I wanted something that looked cool."
July 4th weekend was a busy one travel wise for the Kit Fox crew as it had us speeding up to Bishop California via the trusty old US 395 to pick up our buddy Brice (of Brice Weaver Photography fame) from his John Muir Trail (JMT) hike.
Mountain Man Rendezvous have a long and rich history, these where often bi-annual events where trappers, mountain men and peddlers would come together to exchange their wears and enjoy some stories and swap skills.
