July 15, 2011

So many of our friends seem terrified by the great outdoors, preferring concrete jungle brunches to nature hikes and overnight camping. Is it because they are afraid of bears or is it just that there's not enough dope camping gear to assist a citified aesthete? We've found a solution to both problems: bear mace and tons of other cool shit to take to the woods. Here's one more piece of advice: when you finally get the chance to escape the clutches of your keyboard, leave the phone at home and try smoke signals instead.
