My Super Cool Holiday Gift List for the Outdoorsy Type

This is not like your typical gift list. For one, I consider myself a neat person, so therefore, this list is neat. It is curated with love. For another, most of this stuff I’ve tried/used, and the ones I haven’t, I tell you. (I only add them because of their high “that’s neat” factor.) So…

Capturing Moments of “Brilliance” and My Recommended List of Podcasts

I realize I probably only use 10% of what my iPhone is capable of – which really upsets my husband as I don’t use the calendar function AT ALL. (I still keep my appointments and reminders on an actual calendar. How old school of me?) But one thing I have been embracing is the voice…

Those of you who know me well, know that I bid (and won) a chef-prepared dinner at the last POMA (Professional Outdoor Media Association) conference. My intent for the dinner was to ‘wow’ my parents and immediate family for their 50th wedding anniversary this past June. (50 years – can you believe it?) I was…

Calling All Outdoor TV Reviewers?

I’m not sure about you, but I get slammed with people asking about a job in the outdoor industry. Of course, most want something for nothing (you know, there’s that whole “work for it” thing) but others truly have talent in video, or photography and its STILL very hard to break in. Well, I discovered…
