Hiking Shenandoah National Park A Weekend Guide

Hiking Shenandoah National Park: A Weekend Guide

I’m going to start off with a little honesty: Shenandoah National Park really hasn’t ever been on my radar. I want to visit all of the National Parks one day, yes, but I always imagined Shenandoah National Park being packed full of people and really close to a road (Skyline Drive). And it kind of is.

Gotta Get Up to Get Down Mountain Bike Ride Oregon Merinoholics

Gotta Get Up To Get Down: 30 Mile Ride

Made the trip south from Washington to Oregon late this spring to ride some mountain bikes in Oakridge. This tiny town is slowly but surely becoming a destination on the map. Old school singletrack coupled with Cascade alpine makes for some truly amazing riding. A lot of people like to get shuttled to the top for the descent, but sometimes you gotta get up to get down. In this case we chose Moon Point… total ride: 30 miles & 5,500 vertical feet.READ MORE

Dealing with Fear to Move Forward Merinoholics Adventures

Dealing with Fear to Move Forward

4 years ago, on a beautiful summer day, I hiked up my first mountain in Alaska. It wasn’t easy, but very rewarding and so I decided to do it again. Before I knew it, I was purchasing an old ice axe along with some gear and started climbing mountains on a regular basis.READ MORE

Spring Walleye Season with Minus33 Merino Wool in Minnesota Merinoholics Adventures

Spring Walleye Season with Minus33

Minnesota is full of past times, from snowmobiling to the opener of deer season in the fall. There is one particularly close to my heart and that is the start of spring walleye. The season begins in the early part of May and offers some the best and most exciting fishing action in the country. Across the state of Minnesota, the walleye opener is treated as a holiday as people from all over wet a line chasing these fish. READ MORE

Haiti Trip Emma Merinoholics Adventures

Human Kind: Haiti Trip

This past spring, I had the opportunity to spend a month in the Caribbean. The first three weeks were spent in Borgne, Haiti, a rural commune on the northern coast of the island. We worked with a group of women who are leaders in their community to train them in the Human Centered Design process and collaboratively executed a project to help further development of the community. It was a difficult three weeks, as resources were limited, but I would not trade the experience.READ MORE

Training for the Trail - BenOnAdventures Merinoholics Stories

Training for the Trail with BenOnAdventures

When you think about going on an adventure, you may not think about how important training off the trails is. Or you may think “all I have to do is hike” to have a successful adventure. Sure, this may be applicable for some smaller treks, but larger, more ambitious ones require additional exercise.READ MORE

Kyle Merinoholics Merino Wool in the Workplace

Merino Wool in the Workplace

A lot of my time is spent outdoors doing the things I love, hunting and fishing being the primary activities. However, I spend a lot of my time at work as well, 8-12 hours days stuck inside not being able to get outside, some days until the sun hits the trees. One benefit of my Minus33 gear is its ability to adapt to the workplace and help me stay comfortable during the day.READ MORE

Why the Go-To Layers for Police are Wool

Why the Go-To Layers for Police are Wool

During the winter months, I often get asked about what I do to stay warm at work. As a police officer, there is a strong likelihood that I will be out of the vehicle for extended periods of time without the opportunity to duck out of the cold and get warm. I have been provided with some of the necessary gear to assist with this, however, as someone suffering from Raynaud’s Disease, the basic gear does not cut it for me. If I get cold, I lose the dexterity in my extremities, starting with my fingers and toes. With this job, that just can’t happen.READ MORE

Woolverino Men's Micro T-Shirt Review

REVIEW: Minus33 Woolverino Men’s Micro Weight T-Shirt

If there is one thing that is often overlooked on an outdoorsman’s checklist, it is the base layer.

When dealing with Mother Nature, we tend to seek out the gear that will protect us best from the elements, on the outside. But to me, the layer that is the closest to my skin will make the biggest difference between a successful day out in the wild or a trip that I would rather forget about.

When I learned about the newest Minus33 technology, Woolverino, I had to give it a shot. I’ve been choosing to wear merino wool base layers for a long time. Spending a lot of time off trail, I tend to abuse my gear a lot, which is why the nylon inner core of Woolverino sounded like a great idea. READ MORE
