Off to Outdoor Retailer

As many of you probably already know, tomorrow marks the start of the 2016 Summer Outdoor Retailer gear convention in Salt Lake City, Utah. As usual, I’ll be attending the show to check out the latest and greatest gear coming from our favorite outdoor brands. It’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it. 
Because I’ll be at the convention all week, there will be no further updates on The Adventure Blog until next Monday, August 8. In the meantime, if you’d like to get an idea of some of the new gear that is heading our way, be sure to drop by Gear Institute to read the three show previews that I’ve written to cover the event. The first was published yesterday, while part two went live today, and a third is coming tomorrow. On Wednesday, just as the show is opening, we’ll also post our selections for the Best New Gear Awards as well. 
Of course, I’ll also be sharing my thoughts directly from the show floor on Twitter and Facebook. Follow me at @kungfujedi or join my Facebook page to get those updates over the next few days. I usually post photos and thoughts on some of the most interesting gear that I come across while there. 
I’ll be back soon with more adventure news.
