Today’s technology seems to also find its way to the outdoors enthusiast. I have been geocaching already for a number of years, and when I go hiking and camping, I tend to use my GPS to track my path, and I use the smart-phone for other “smart” stuff.

You can enjoy the outdoors even on a small budget. For most outdoors endeavors, the gear don’t have to be expensive or high-end quality. Although there are situations where you can’t compromise quality, for example, snow camping.

Backyard camping by the fireBackyard camping by the fireBack in August 2009, we were having a nice backyard “bushcrafting party”. At some point, while we were making the fire, the knife, unbeknown to us, fell in the fire, and the handle was totally destroyed.
