Beach Canopy and Umbrella

A must have for Spring, Summer, and Fall sports or beach outings. We've tried quite a few pop-up shades, tents, umbrella's etc. In the end this one always seems to be the go-to choice. Comparatively small and light, quick and easy to setup/takedown, can take rough beach weather (when pointed in the right direction!) It just works and it works faster, better and ligher than the other options we've used. 

What We Love:

  1. Quick Setup
  2. Light
  3. Great protection from the elements

You ever had brisket smoked on a Traegar? How about smoked salmon? Smoked chicken? Ribs? Once you smoke your meat and veggies, you may never cook over gas or charcoal again. 

What we love:

  1. The taste!!
  2. Traegars come in a number of sizes to fit your needs
  3. Temperature controls keep food at just the right cooking temperature

Coleman Dome Tent for Camping

This is the tent you take for overnight car camping. Best for 2-3 people. 2 cots fit great.

20 02 26 20 25 11 original 600x600 backpack medium

Hiking Backpack - Medium

The G4Free hiking backpack is a great value. It is a medium, 50L pack great for camping, hiking, climbing gear, etc. The rain fly comes in more handy than I thought.
