At Read About Gear we are big on practicing outdoor ethics. CLIF Bar is running a campaign for the second year in a row to help support some Non-porfit organizations that help with outdoor ethic.
Watch this video to get a feel for the campaign
CLIF Bar is inviting outdoor enthusiasts to Protect the Places We Play by sharing photos and stories of their adventures on www.MeettheMoment.com. CLIF Bar will reward your readers for sharing by donating $5 for each Moment uploaded, up to $100,000, to their choice of one of five non-profits dedicated to protecting the outdoors. Partners include Access Fund, International Mountain Bicycling Association, Leave No Trace, Surfrider Foundation and Winter Wildlands Alliance.
An additional $1 will be donated every time a Moment is shared via a social networking site and a grand prize winner will be selected from the Top 25 most shared/liked Moments to have another $10,000 donated in their name to one of the non-profit partners, plus a year’s supply of CLIF Bars.
I encourage you all to participate.
Keep it real, keep it safe.
Recently I acquired this new folding Charcoal Chimney. It is the first of its kind, its very surprising that no one has made a folding chimney before. It fits in a standard 12 inch dutch oven and is very compact in comparison to its counter parts. I am going to go over the features then the experience I’ve had so far.
I Recently acquired the WindPro II. A long, long time ago I use to have the original WindPro and used it a lot. But more recently I have been using my MSR Pocket Rocket for backpacking trips and my main stove. I had been missing the wider stability and the more control this stove has.
If you've been hiking you know the pain and suffering that can come from rocks, sand, and stickers getting into your trail shoes; blisters, chafing, and ruined socks are common maladies. However there are a great number of low-to gaiters known as scree gaiters that are designed to block all that stuff and more, keeping your precious feet intact.
