Greatest Camp Trick Ever

Lightweight, Recyclable, Cheap, Easy, Fun

If you have never turned an old pop (or soda depending where you are from) or beer can into a camp stove you have never lived. This is a super crunchy, granola’d way to reduce your impact; yes, but it’s also a pretty catchy little gimmick that saves on weight, materials, and space while you are backpacking, boating, kayaking, trekking, etc. This video is probably the best and easiest “how to” explanation. Enjoy my friends and camp on!

 

Hey, check out these products that will have you stylin and show how much of a conscientious camper you are:

Alexey Kljatov Snowflakes Photographs – DIY Macro Camera Rig

Snowflake photos

Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov shows us with a little creativity and ingenuity anything is possible. To create some of the most spectacular Snowflake photos I have ever seen, Kljatov used an old wood stool, a sheet of glass, steel wool, an LED flashlight, a narrow wooden board, one plastic bag, some tape, a Canon A650 camera (a $200 point & shoot camera) taped to an old  Helios 44M-5 lens (reserved). If you would like to learn more about how he did it check out his blog post – “My Techniques for Snowflakes Shooting

Eric Roner Sends 800ft Cliff on SnoMo

A Tribute To Shane McConkey

 

In this episode of Roner Vision, Eric Roner needs to get rid of the snowmobile he was given by his friend, the late and great Shane McConkey. How does a professional skier, BASE jumper, and dare devil badass free space in his garage for a new SnoMo? Does he sell it, does he put it out to pasture, does he junk it? Nope. He drives it off an 800 ft cliff. It is actually a fitting and touching memorial BASE jump. Shane would be proud…but he would have done it naked.

Nike LED Snowboard Boots: Nike LunarENDOR Snowboard Boots

Nike LunarENDOR Quickstrike Snowboard Boots

Nike LunarENDOR Quickstrike Snowboard Boots

Nike dropped there most high tech snowboard boot they’ve ever made early in the fall of 2013.  It was called the Nike Lunarendor Snowboard Boot and featured more tech than anyone though possible, and then this happened; the Nike LunarENDOR Quickstrike Snowboard Boots.  The Nike LunarENDOR Quickstrike Snowboard Boots feature the same tech as the Nike Lunarendor Snowboard Boots – most notably Lunarlon Cushsioning, Interchangeable Flex Inserts, Free Sole, Heat Moldable Liners, and a Flywire Harness, but then they add some spice to the Quickstrike.  The spice is LED lights, 30 of them embedded into the swoosh.  Damn.
