Our Director of Brand Marketing at ACK heads to Colorado to take on the 14,000ft summit of Grays Peak. Going from sea level to that extreme elevation in within a 24 hr window is no easy feat. Check out how he prepared, the gear he used, and of course the views!
The weather is cooling down and leaves are beginning to change as the perfect season for outdoor activities gets closer. Everyone has their fall traditions, but we encourage you to make the most out of this fall by trying something new!
Check out this Go Play Day from the ACK Houston Store Associate, John Hayes! Last week he spent a night kayak-camping on the Colorado River in Columbus, TX. This was the maiden voyage for his brand-new Tarpon 120, so I was really excited to get it out on the water.
More than half of our country will experience above normal temperatures through the end of this summer, according to NOAA’s National Weather Service. While most of the population will likely seek indoor activities to beat the heat, some of us will embrace the opportunity to enjoy the Great Outdoors, and camping is no exception.
New month, new gear! Keeping up with our new tradition of a monthly product pick blog to help you keep up with our constantly updating inventory, we asked the ACK merchandising team for their input on what to spotlight for June.
When I was young, old Western movies portrayed Texas as a land of mountains, cactus and desert as far as the eye could see. But where I grew up, it was nothing like that.
The plan was to put in around 10 am, paddle until we reached the island we’d camp on, spend the night, then pack up and paddle until we reached our take-out point under a bridge around mid-afternoon the next day, where Rising Phoenix would pick us up and take us back to Bastrop.
The experience was probably the best I’ve ever had camping anywhere, and it probably wouldn’t have worked out if I didn’t have help from work-the gear that ACK provided make the trip possible.
“I’ve had this grand scheme to steal away for a few weeks during the Alaskan summer to be dropped off on an island in the PWS with a kayak and all my saltwater fishing gear and no connection to the outside world except a pickup date.”
