Most of my life is spent exploring the great state of Maine and all its woods and waters have to offer. These outdoor adventures typically require me to rely on a wide variety of high quality gear and products, to keep my family and me safe and comfortable. Through the years, I have seen a wide variety of products fail to deliver on their promises and leave me with memories of the outdoors best left unmentioned and forgotten. High quality gear and equipment, however, can make exploring even the most hostile of environments enjoyable.
I occasionally accept offers from retailers, outfitters and publishers to review high quality equipment, services and reading materials.
Due to the volume of the requests, I must pick and choose those requests, I feel comfortable providing and unbiased review and openly endorsing as superior. I currently receive approximately 15,000 page views a month from outdoor aficionados, who like me have a passion for the outdoors and outdoor related merchandise and services.
