Off to Outdoor Retailer


We’ve only just returned from a bit of a holiday break, and its time to hit the road once again. Tomorrow, I’ll be headed off to Salt Lake City to attend the 2016 Winter Outdoor Retailer show where I’ll get a chance to take a look at the newest outdoor gear scheduled for release later this year.

The show itself doesn’t actually begin until Thursday, but I’ll be joining a few other media folks on an overnight camping excursion tomorrow before some of the official festivities begin on Wednesday. This means that once again, updates are likely to be sparse for the week ahead, at least here on the blog itself. I will be sharing thoughts and images from the OR show floor on my Twitter feed, as well as on The Adventure Blog Facebook page. Follow either of those to catch a glimpse of some of the best new gear that I come across along the way.

If you’d like to read a preview of what to expect from the show, I’ve written three of them that will be going up at Gear Institute over the next few days. The first one is live now, and the others will follow on Tuesday and Wednesday. Each takes a look at ten interesting items that will be revealed at the event.

Hopefully things will get back to a normal pace around here next week. It’s time to get focused on 2016, and some of the fun adventures ahead. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
