Teva Ember Moc Review

Fall is here, which means it’s car camping season! It’s the season of more. More layers, more things in the car, and most importantly, more comfort. A pair of cozy camp shoes for crisp mornings and evenings is a must. I’ve been rocking the Teva Ember Moc shoes (slippers?) for the last two and a half years. Here’s how they’ve fared.

Primus Tupike Stove Review

For the longest time, I never had my own real camp stove. I’d cook things over my little Snow Peak Litemax, praying that the wind wouldn’t blow the stove over. When Primus introduced the Tupike stove at Outdoor Retailer several years ago, I wanted one. Stoves could be aesthetic, and functional? I couldn’t believe it. After lugging the Primus Tupike Stove around for the last few years, here’s how it’s been faring.

Glamping with Tentrr at Falling Waters Oasis

This post is sponsored by Tentrr. All opinions are my own.

Over the Fourth of July this year, I had the chance to stay at one of Tentrr’s Sierra Foothill locations. I picked the Falling Water Oasis due to its proximity to North Lake Tahoe. My plan was to use our Tentrr as basecamp to escape the madness of Fourth of July at the lake while we bouldered our little hearts out over the holiday.

Stay Charged with the Jackery Explorer 240

This post is sponsored by Jackery. All opinions are my own.

I’m the person who always manages to kill someone’s car battery, especially bouldering in Bishop in the winter. Now that I have my own car (Opal!), I’m trying to take extra good care of her. My day job as a software engineer allows me to be remote. More often than not, I am (trying to be) on the road. Toss in my side gig as a blogger and photographer, and I need to power my electronics at all times.

Jackery sent over the Explorer 240 for me to play with while on the road. Here’s how it fared.

Great Grub Camp Food

Great Grub Camp Food Review

After a long day of climbing or hiking, cooking is usually the last thing on my mind. I’ve been known to scarf down a backpacking meal or heat up a Fishpeople Seafood pouch to avoid the hassle of prepping and cleaning. Great Grub Camp Food makes gourmet camp food easy, without the hassle. Each entree has the convenience of a freeze dried meal with a little extra that’s more than just boiling hot water.

Therm-a-Rest Stellar Blanket

Thermarest Stellar Blanket Review

No joke, when I think of perfect, outdoor puffy blankets. I think of Rumpl. I think of fog swirling in the trees. Maybe an artfully framed railroad. Beautifully draped over a beautiful person. They’ve got that image on lock. Then I think of the price of that blanket. I think about how my aesthetic is frantically digging poo holes, ripping holes in clothing, and not showering. Then I realize that maybe the Rumpl is not for me. Thankfully Therm-a-Rest introduced their affordable line of tech blankets for 2016.
