Surely everyone has heard of a LifeStraw? It is a simple tube that is a water filter. Place the inlet into the water, then suck the water through the tube. Seems simple enough right? Almost too good to be true?
If something seems to god to be true it usually is, except for the LifeStraw.

On a hiking trip a couple of weeks ago I experienced some of the first signs of heat exhaustion, which were dry skin, rapid heartbeat, fatigue and muscle cramps. This was the same trip where I found the abandoned hunting camp. I knew that I was getting too hot, daytime highs were near 100...

Contrary to popular belief, nature classes do not take their clothes off and run around naked in the woods. In fact its just the opposite. We keep our clothes on and drive to where we want to go. There might be some nature clubs out there at do strip down and run through the woods naked, but...

I would like to tell you about my 3 favorite Maxpedition Backpacks, and what makes them unique.
Maxpedition Falcon-II Pygmy - which is my favorite dayhike / warm weather overnight bag. Even though the Falcon-II Pygmy has capacity of only 1,400 cubic inches, for you ultralight backpackers out...
Which do you prefer and why?

Small - good for day hikes and short trips
Medium - good for day hikes or overnight trips
When someone says daypack, one of the first backpacks I think about is the Maxpedition Falcon II Pygmy. Its lightweight, has plenty of room for year, and has 2 places for a 32 ounce water bottle.
Inside of the pack I carry:
First Aid kit

Hopefully my kids and I will be able to make...
