Spring Walleye Season with Minus33 Merino Wool in Minnesota Merinoholics Adventures

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

Sure, this may be applicable for some smaller treks, but larger, more ambitious ones require additional exercise.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

Review: Saratoga Lightweight Bottoms

For the past two years, I have worked for the U.S. House of Representatives serving the constituents in the most professional manner. Politics and service to others is in my blood. I have had a wealth of experience in my young life and I always have sought out ways to challenge myself and take risk. Risk that has always bettered my character and experience.  As such, I have been in the planning stages of completing a thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail in 2018.READ MORE

Oula with Minus33

Each Wednesday in small-town New Hampshire, I teach a booty shakin’ sassy, and sexy dance fitness class called “Oula.” The playlist is loaded with popular music with artists like Pitbull, Nicki Minaj, David Guetta, and Elle King…But unfortunately for me even if my dance moves are on fire, so is my body….and not in a good way. You know those girls who say “I don’t sweat, I sparkle?” Well, I am not one of those girls, I just straight up sweat. Like a lot. It’s hard teaching a sexy class when I feel very un-sexy! I mean, how am I supposed to channel my inner Minaj when I look like I was caught in a water-balloon ambush?

Minus33 Algonquin – a wool shirt that keeps you cool

In all of my years of hiking I can think of only two shirts I’ve purchased specifically for my time on the trails. Both were long-sleeved hooded shirts purchased for sun protection (I am a bald guy, after all). When hiking in hot weather, I’ve always worn free shirts collected from various running races. This is because I am, ahem, thrifty, and figured it didn’t really matter what shirt I was hiking in because it would just get sweaty and stinky anyway.
