I recently embarked on a trip out to the great wide open of West Texas and took some products we sell here at ACK along for the trip. Let me start right off the bat by saying everything I used served its purpose very well and I will give you a rundown of what I used, how I used it and what I may have run into along the way.
We met Shane Townsend, outdoor blogger for Bat City Outdoors and avid paddler, halfway through his mission to write about fifty paddles in Texas that anyone can do. We decided it was the perfect opportunity to do some product testing and got him outfitted with some NRS dry bags.
NRS films brings us another beautifully made paddling film that tells the amazing story of Greg Mallory who wound up paralyzed from the waist down after a terrible skiing accident and as a result turned to paddling. Today, he’s is a skilled Class V whitewater paddler who finds comfort, strength and kinship on the water.
You’ve shared your love of the outdoors with your kids and now you can’t get ’em out of the boat and off the trail. You’ve started them down the long path of an outdoor enthusiast and if they’ll be spending more time joining you on your adventures, they need their own gear!
I don’t want to put too fine a point on this, but if someone in your life loves the outdoors, a knife would most certainly make a sharp gift this holiday season. We offer a wide selection of knives here at ACK and I’ll run down a few different models you should check out:
