Tidy Up Your Gear Storage

Use a rod to hang jackets, packs and other gear.

I’m just your average hiker/backpacker/dabbling cyclist/SUP enthusiast/occasional car camper. Sound familiar? If you’ve caught the multisport bug like I have, then you probably have enough gear to not only tackle any activity, but to outfit your friends, too.

Camp Recipe: Spinach Goat Cheese Frittata

This classic Italian style egg dish is a perfect way to serve eggs for a crowd. Most frittata recipes require at least some amount of time in an oven. Not an option for us! There are a handful of stove-top only recipes that could work, but they all require a high-stakes flip midway through the […]
