With hectic schedules and planning galore some may hastily notice the darker winter days while others may not even notice. For us, the earlier sunset and dark before you even get off work days sometimes coincide with less time for the fun outdoors. Fewer hiking/camping/fishing days and less sunlight can have a huge impact on those outdoor lovers – like us!

The best topic for the winter months: how to stay warm. Throughout our years of camping, overlanding, and hanging out by the fire we have learned some new tricks along the way. You can’t tell an outdoorsman/woman to stay indoors when the temperatures drop. Outdoor hobbies fuel our fire and have us looking forward to that weekend adventure no matter what! Simply making some adjustments to fit each season will keep you ready to go and always prepared.

The changing of seasons does not only mean comfy blankets, fall foliage and delicious pumpkin beers, but also amazing seasonal foods! Some of our our fall favorites include acorn squash, sweet potatoes, turnips, apples, and of course pumpkin. Fall colors of orange and red are known to have significant health benefits like vitamin A and tons of antioxidants.
