Finally, finally, finally, the tech department has landed on a new email platform and the formatting will get back to normal. It was a huge debate and we landed on the link back on the "x min read".

Outdoor tip of the day: Use hand sanitizer to start a "germ-free" fire in a pinch...yes, hand sanitizer is usually flammable!
Rad Gear: Centurian Eddie Bauer
I have to admit, back in the day, I would usually only shop for my dad at Eddie Bauer; he likes their rugby shirts...the rest of their stuff didn't seem overly stylish. Maybe I was less outdoorsy then? I did find an Eddie mid-layer for skiing a couple of years ago, and now I look there for reasonably priced, good quality gear. Eddie is turning 100 and has had quite the history. They're celebrating their centennial with some new "retro" focused gear, and I like it. I might get Greg this citrus colored Centennial Collection MicroTherm® 1000 Down Jacket for Christmas; keep it on the down-low. 😉 (4 min - Read)

Edible Survival Guide?
Weird post, suitable only for a Friday the 13th: They don't know how many Land Rover Defender survival guides are left in the wild...because you can eat them. Makes sense...long road trip, need a snack, little salt for flavour. 75,000 were printed, each had approximately the nutritional value of a cheeseburger. (2 min Read)

Is Car Camping Really Camping?: Of course it is, don't be an outdoor snob! Whatever it takes to get more and more people outdoors, that is our mandate here at TDT! Heck, camp in your backyard if you don't want to be associated with the car. Anyway, nice car camping beginners guide by Geartrade <--- remember look there first for used gear. (6 min Read)

Blood, Sweat And Tears: Put up your hand if you're an ultra runner. I am so far from an ultra runner that I had to look up the official definition. The Golden Ultra (Golden is an amazing town up here in British Columbia with a world class ski resort) is a three-day staged trail race. The stages — titled Blood, Sweat and Tears — are 88km (55 mi), a little under 60K (37 mi) and 22K (14 mi). Sound like fun? Not to me, but apparently people love it because registration for the 2021 event sold out almost instantly. (2 min Read)
