Alpine Ascents International Gear Sale
blog     21 Nov 2014 | 1:35 pm
Alpine Ascents International, Seattle’s world famous adventure guide service and outfitter, updates their rental gear every few years… What does this mean for you? It means high quality, slightly used gear at insane prices at their gear sale – just in time for holiday shopping. This is what I found when I checked out the sale on Thursday. The colors and variety of the clothing are limited – it is rental gear – but the quality is excellent. Some items, particularly the women’s clothing, are in excellent “like new” condition with a good selection of sizes. The men’s section has a...

The Top 5 Booze for Backpacking
blog     21 Nov 2014 | 11:55 am
Those of us who have breathed mountain air, walked through golden alpine meadows, or slept beneath starry skies know that the great outdoors are a kind intoxicant in and of themselves. However, many of us also know that there’s nothing wrong with cracking open a cold one after a long day of getting your wilderness on or sharing a drink with your hiking partners around the fire. But enjoying a drink in the backcountry comes with its own set of issues – how much weight am I willing to take on for that backpacking buzz? How do I negotiate weight versus tastiness...


2014 September-October ‘Where Am I?’ winner, location revealed
Blog     21 Nov 2014 | 11:13 am
If only seagulls could talk … they might have revealed the secret destination of Scouting magazine’s September-October Where Am I? contest titled “On the Edge.” The picturesque destination of Anacapa Island — part of the Channel Islands National Park on the coast of California — was correctly identified by Craig Senzig, a committee member for Troop 279 in Lexington, Ky. Senzig was randomly selected as lucky number 24 from our pool of 248 entries, and he will receive a $100 gift certificate to spend at his local Scout Shop or at scoutstuff.org. Congrats, Craig!

Rail-Riding - Getting that Extra SpeedBy Randy DavisIf you have spent any time on the Internet researching pinewood derby racing, you will have ran across the term "rail-riding". This alignment technique had been used for many years by a select few, but became popular around 2008.(1) The Pro-Rail Rider Tool, the Pro-Axle Bender and other tools were introduced soon after to facilitate the implementation of this technique.But with all of the tools, videos, and documentation available, I still get many calls from confused car builders about rail-riding. Therefore, the intent of today's article is to organize the many facets of...

BSA’s Fieldbook wins 2014 National Outdoor Book Award
Blog     21 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
The BSA’s Fieldbook, already a fixture in Scout backpacks and troop libraries, has officially joined the pantheon of history’s greatest outdoor books. The nonprofit National Outdoor Book Awards Foundation just announced that the Fieldbook: Scouting’s Manual of Basic and Advanced Skills for Outdoor Adventure, has won its rare Work of Significance award. Think of it as a lifetime achievement award for outdoor books. The National Outdoor Book Awards are presented annually, but the Work of Significance recognition is handed out less frequently. In fact, the Fieldbook is only the third book since 1999 to receive this honor, which goes to “books that are unusually well-written and of exceptional significance, and/or books that are...
