1. On Our Radar: Good To-Go

    One of my favorite parts of camping is settling into the campsite after a long day of hiking and outdoor adventure, starting up a fire, and cooking a hearty meal with close friends, but sometimes cooking can be a bit of a luxury. Sure, if you’re on a short weekend jaunt with a car and functional cooler then it’s totally doable.

That’s when Good To-Go comes in.

  6. Cut Feather Artwork by Chris Maynard

    We are loving the delicate artwork of Chris Maynard, who achieves intricate detail in his work by using a small scalpel, tiny eye surgery scissors, forceps, and magnifying glasses to dissect tiny cutouts from feathers. Maynard has been a feather enthusiast since he was 12-years-old, creating his artwork since that time, but only recently showing it professionally to the public, starting a few years ago.
