Weekend Snapshots: Exploring A New Route

How fitting it was that my husband grabbed this Clif Bar from our food pack and it was exactly what we were doing at the time. Exploring a new route (trail)…..

I will share many more in depth details of our hike later this week. For now here is a sneak peek at where we enjoyed ourselves this past weekend.

Anyone care to take a guess at what trail we hiked and in what state?

Supplies To Have On Hand For Stress Free Fun In The Outdoors

Every year I stock up about this time on the supplies we use most during the next few months. This makes it so much easier to pick up and go rather than make time to run to the store every time we get the urge for fun. I keep a big rubbermaid type box and gradually it becomes full as I see things we use often during our kayaking,camping, and hiking trips.

You may be thinking…..it’s only March and they live in Wisconsin how can they go kayaking? Well, we have been on the river as early as March dodging ice chunks. Are we crazy? Absolutely! Is it fun? Honestly, it feels great to paddle again after so many months, but it is not fun, it’s COLD!

Anyhow, here are a few of our favorite snacks that can survive the roughest kayaking trip, last minute camping trip, or the hottest trail hike.

Clif Bars

Luna Bars

Almonds/Nuts

Candy

Vitalyte Electrolyte Replacement Powder

Granola bars

Jerky

Fruit pouches

Dried fruit

Mountain House Meals

I am still missing a few favorites but you at least get the idea. With a few bottles of water, dry bag/backpack, and the right foot wear for the activity, we can literally be out the door and on our way to adventure in under 30 minutes. Now that is what I call stress free fun!
