Quench Your Thirst at this Desert Brewery

This might be stating the obvious but…the desert is hot. Really hot. And it doesn’t matter if you’re sitting poolside at the Desert Riviera, swanning around Palm Springs, or hiking to the top of Mt.

Gear Review: Preserve Toothbrush

Preserve Toothbrush

A green travel toothbrush for your dopp kit

Let’s face it, traveling can be tough. Airport delays can leave you stranded at O’Hare for a harrowing amount of time. Driving through North Dakota can leave you feeling like a zombie. That’s why taking a few minutes to freshen up and make yourself feel human can make the slog parts of traveling more bearable.… Continue Reading →
