  4. 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.

  9. 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.
