Every day we get to wake up in a new place, stumble across new things, hop over rattlesnakes, dodge poison oak, meander through ice caves, unwillingly feed skunks, get stalked by mountain lions, befriend 10 million deer, climb over mountains, bathe in streams, eat copious amounts of sour patch kids, and absolutely destroy our bodies until finally, as the sun goes down, we call it a day and crawl into camp. All for the small price of going for a walk. I rarely remember the days I sat on the couch and binge watched Netflix all day. Go explore your backyard!

GEAR OF THE DAY
I first was turned on to these magic little containers by Kit and Jacob. They are perfect for mixing a shake, eating food out of, soaking cold food to eat later, a cozy for freezer bag cooking (what I do), and a mug for drinking cold or hot coffee. They are durable, easy to clean, can be purchased in a 3 pack inexpensively at a grocery store. I use the 16 ounce size.
