Outdoors Newsletter - November 2005

1. WELCOME TO WINTER

Happy Holidays! Most major outdoor activities are winding down like camping, boating and golf, but as the snow flies and the temperature drops some of the best outdoor activities are just getting warmed up.

We love snow and cold because of the unique activities it brings and we dare you to make one last goal before the year ends. Go enjoy an outdoor winter activity like skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, ice-skating, ice climbing, a hike in the snow or building a snow cave.

So, wax those skis, grab the ice climbing gear and hope that Jack Frost nips your neighborhood.

2. A LITTLE OF DAVE’S WISDOM

Being prepared before you go helps for any outdoor activity. If your gear is organized, you know what you have and where to find it when you need it. Get in the habit of putting your equipment back in the same place after you use it. This is especially important when you’re backpacking. Read the full article.

3. `TIS THE SEASON
