Proper Care and Storage of Your Camping Equipment

After you have invested in the right camping tent, sleeping bags, and the other gear you and your family need for an enjoyable and relaxing camping vacation, it is important to properly care for your camping equipment so that it gives you plenty of years of use .

You should take the time to clean and inspect all of your camping gear after each trip before putting it away for your next adventure, but it is especially important to pack things away the right way at the end of the camping season to avoid damaged, useless equipment next camping season.

Caring for Your Camping Tent

Roll out your tent, wash down the inside and out with a mild soap and inspect the seams and fabric for weaknesses and tears. Use the Coleman Seam Seal & Outdoor Repair kit to reinforce any troublesome areas. Allow your tent to air dry completely before packing it again. Gather all the stakes and replace any that have been lost or damaged through the season. Pack the stakes in their own bag to prevent the sharp edges from tearing your tent and place the stake bag inside your tent bag. Store your tent in a dry place that is not prone to insects or rodents.

Cleaning and Storing Camping Stoves, Grills, and Lanterns

Thoroughly clean your camping stoves, grills, and lanterns before putting them away for the season. Use warm water and a mild dish soap. Disassemble the items as needed to clean away all grease and food debris in your stove or insects and other debris that may be trapped in your camping lantern. If necessary, you can clean the inside of your stove with a high pressure hose like those found at carwashes.

Dry your camping gear completely. Turn the stove upside down if you have rinsed it with a hose to empty out any water inside. Replace bulbs, mantles, seals, and other parts that are damaged or worn and empty liquid fuel tanks to prevent buildup while the equipment is not in use. If your camping gear does not have a protective case for storage, place it inside a plastic bag and seal it tightly to keep spiders and other insects out.

Proper Care of Sleeping Bags

Most sleeping bags are machine washable and can be tumble dried on low. Wash your sleeping bag in warm water with a mild detergent in a commercial washer with a drum, using the gentle cycle. Rinse cold and add a liquid fabric softener. You can also hand wash your sleeping bag in the bath tub using a mild detergent. Tumble dry the sleeping bag on low or let it air dry. Make sure the sleeping bag is completely dry before rolling it up. Avoid storing your sleeping bag in a stuff sack or other constrictive pack for long periods. Roll it and store it in a dry place away from mice and insects, like your tent.

Cleaning Your Cooler

Coleman coolers are popular because they are so easy to care for. Before putting away your cooler until next camping season, give it a good cleaning with soap and warm water. Wash the inside and outside of the cooler, using baking soda to remove stains. To get rid of odors, wash the cooler using a mixture of bleach and water. You can also wipe the inside of the cooler with vanilla or peppermint extract, leaving saturated cotton balls inside the cooler overnight. Before storing your cooler, let it air dry completely with the lid off. Remember to wash drains and faucets thoroughly as well.

3 Ways to Make a Road Bike Faster

People who ride road bikes fall into two real categories, those of us who like to ride as fast as possible as often as possible and those of us who like to ride for as long as possible as often as possible. The one common factor that these two groups have in common is that all cyclists like their bike to be as light as possible. If you are wanting to ride fast having a light bike makes the job that much easier and if you want to ride distances then having a bike that is as light as possible also makes the task easier. Grams matter where bikes are concerned, because of this the whole bike industry is geared towards making frames and components as light as possible. So what can you do to make sure that your bike is as light as you can get it.

Firstly i would suggest weighing your bike to see how heavy it is. Cyclists do get hung up on the weight of their bike without knowing what it actually weighs, you never know your bike might be as light as you are ever going to get it, in which case you will just have to start training harder!

The frame of the bike is generally going to be the heaviest part of the bike. If you are riding a steel frame you might want to consider changing to either a lighter aluminium frame or even an ultra light and ultra stiff state of the art carbon fibre frame. Either of these should save you quite a bit of weight but neither come in very cheap.

The next heaviest part of the bike to look at is your wheels. Again many older and cheaper sets of wheels were made of steel but nearly all wheels sold nowadays are either aluminium or carbon fibre. Although these are both much lighter materials the strength of theses wheels is comparable to older steel ones as manufacturing process have evolved so much over the last few years.

Whilst you are looking at your wheels you should look to change your tyres to a lighter alternative. In some cases when you reduce the weight of the tyres you ride you also compromise the puncture resistance hat the tyres offer you. This is not always the case though. The Maxxis Advantage tyre is such a tyre that offers really good puncture resistance through its different layers that go to make up the tyre whilst still staying on the lighter side. The Maxxis Advantage also offers very low rolling resistance which also helps to improve the ride quality.

Many of the smaller components on your road bike are also now available in aluminium alternatives instead of the old fashioned steel parts which used to be fitted to bikes as standard. The seat pin, the handlebars and the pedals are all areas where you can shave off considerable weight from your bike if you wish to.

And finally you might want to consider upgrading your groupset on your bike to a modern aluminium and carbon combined set. Not only will you save yourself quite a lot of weight from your bike you should also gain added reliability from your machine as parts on old steel groupsets do tend to wear out over time.

So there you have it, the lowdown on how to make your road bike lighter which should help you ride faster for longer.

Elk Population Facts and Statistics For the United States

The elk population in the United States today is well over 1,000,000 animals, with the population growing fairly steadily since a population count was made in 1975, at which time the estimated population was just over 500,000. Even though a population count taken every five years seems to suggest a constant increase in numbers, the elk population is, like most things in nature, somewhat cyclical.

For a herd to either grow in numbers, or sustain an existing number of animals, supporting habitat needs to be there. Most of the habitat suitable for elk is found in the Rocky Mountain region, so it is little wonder that the Rocky Mountain states generally have the largest populations. Of course there are those factors which can cause the elk population to decrease at times. One is loss of habitat. Loss of habitat is very often caused by human development of the land, but in the case of the elk, forest fires play a major role.

When forest land has burned and lies barren for a short time, knapweed often takes over. This noxious weed is difficult to eradicate, and crowds out the types of vegetation that would normally support a herd of elk. Severe winters often take a toll on herds, as do predators, primarily wolves. The reintroduction of wolves into certain regions has been accompanied by a reduction in the elk population in those regions. The combination of a severe winter, and a presence of predators, presents the elk with a double whammy. Hunting is another factor contributing to population loss. The good news is that the elk are a long ways from being an endangered species, quite the opposite in fact.

There are four species of elk in the United States, the Rocky Mountain elk, the Roosevelt Elk, the Tule Elk, and the Manitoba Elk. 90% of the elk are of the Rocky Mountain species. The Roosevelt elk accounts for most of the remaining 10% of the elk population. The number of Tule elk, found in California, numbers under 4,000 animals, and the Manitoba species, found in a couple of the eastern states, numbers under 1,000.

Colorado is the state with the largest elk population (290,000), followed by Montana (160,000), Idaho (110,000) and Wyoming (106,000). New Mexico, Oregon, Utah and Washington have smaller, yet sizable populations. These numbers are for Rocky Mountain elk. The bulk of the Roosevelt elk population is in Oregon (63,000) and Washington (36,000). A portion of Washington's population resides in Olympic National Park, where the species was introduced in the early 1900's.

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is the organization to go to for all kinds of information about elk, including elk population. The Foundation sponsors a number of activities directed towards protecting and preserving elk habitat, often working with other outdoors organizations, such as the Back Country Horsemen. The RMEF has a number of chapters across the United States.

Bike Review – KHS Flagstaff 29 "Full Suspension

Big wheels roll over stuff better. Full suspension helps in the rough stuff. So how does it work when you put them together? The KHS Flagstaff is a 29 "wheeled full suspension bike for trail riding and endurance racing. KHS is known for having great valued bikes and they tend to get into new trends pretty quickly. The 29" wheeled mountain bikes are one of those trends they have gotten into and have done a good job. It started with a hard tail and then they added the Flagstaff.

With 3.5 "of rear wheel travel, the Flagstaff is aimed at cross country riding but is burly enough for rougher trails. The stock build is a middle of the road mix of parts that are more aimed durability than light weight. If you want to make changes, especially to the wheels you can get it down into the 25 lb range but the bike comes stock around 30 lbs.

The frame is aluminum with a horst-link pivot with a rocker arm activated rear shock. This makes for a good pedaling design that when set-up correctly will put the power to the ground, without pedal induced bob. Because the 29 "wheels tend to smooth out small bumps, you can set the suspension a little firmer for a faster machine without giving up any comfort. All the pivots have medium to large sealed cartridge bearings, increasing lateral stiffness and improving pivot durability. This adds a bit of weight but is worth it as the rear end of the frame will not flex excessively leading to ghost shifting and chain line issues. The Rockshox Reba fork and Monarch rear shock are a good match to the suspension design. Both are tune -able for various riding conditions. The Reba is my favorite 29 "fork. It's easy to tune and they are super low maintenance. The weight of the fork is reasonable and the stiffness is good for most riders.

The geometry is balanced making for a quick handling bike that is not twitchy. 29 "are known for the stability that comes from bigger wheels and longer wheel base. The Flagstaff in confidence inspiring on technical terrain and steep downhills but is still an able climber. The biggest drawback ride wise is that it is not a quick accelerating bike but part of that is the heavy stock wheels. A light set of race wheels and tires will go a long way towards improving that flaw. As it is the bike takes a little more effort to get up to speed but takes less effort to keep it there, especially on rooty terrain or loose uphills.

The complete bike is a good value the way it comes stock, with SRAM drivetrain, Hayes Stroker Ryde disc brakes and Truvativ finishing kit. With some upgrades this can go from a good trail bike to a fast endurance racing machine.

Pros And Cons To Incline Trainers And Incline Treadmills

Incline trainers (also referred to as incline treadmills) are a relatively new exercise equipment innovation combining the treadmill with the stepper. It's a treadmill in function but a stepper in workout type. Essentially it's a treadmill that offers a very steep incline for intense "hill climbing" simulated workouts.

Some incline treadmills incline to 40%. Some incline trainers also offer a decline option to simulate walking or running downhill.

What's so great about an incline trainer ?

If you've ever worked out on a step or stair climbing machine, you'll appreciate the intensity and effort required to do a "climbing style" workout. That's what incline treadmills offer – but also offering the features and benefits of a regular treadmill. Yes, you can set them to lower inclines to function just as a regular treadmill.

Pros

  • Burn more calories. The steeper the incline, the more calories you'll burn.
  • If you are not into running, but want an intense workout, incline treadmills will deliver.
  • Low impact workout option. Get an intense workout while walking which is much, much lower impact than running or jogging.
  • Replicate downhill walking and running. Real life running includes running downhill which uses different muscles than running on flat or uphill terrain. Some incline treadmills offer downhill gradients.
  • If you get an incline trainer with iFit technology, you can run or walk terrain simulated from all over the world. Imagine the tremendous training opportunities. You can train for a specific race in your home. If you're running the Seattle marathon, which has hills, then program the Seattle marathon route in your iFit Live powered by Google maps and you can run the Seattle marathon terrain in your home.
  • Best of both worlds – an incline trainer is really just a treadmill that offers a very steep incline. You can still run on these machines.

Cons

  • Shorter walking deck. No incline treadmill that I've found offers a 60 "long deck. That said, you can still comfortably run on 50" to 55 "decks (a common running deck length).
  • If you set it at a very high incline (steeper than 15 – 20%) you'll likely need to hang onto the handles. I find holding onto handles while working out reduces effort. Holding on is an assist which I like to avoid. I'd rather set the incline to a lower grade and not need to hold onto handles. When I work out on steppers I set the workout to a lower speed so I can do the workout without hanging onto handles. That said, do not compromise your safety by not holding onto the handles.

To Bike Or Not to Bike? Off-Season Training For Hockey

Some fitness coaches who specialize in hockey training insist that hockey players should stay off the ice during the summer months. The advocate a return just in the weeks prior to training camp. Some believe that riding the bike is the best mode of energy system development for hockey players. Others, like me, use a combination of modes to train hockey players who will be fitter, faster and more injury resistant.

The elite level players that I train skate 1-2 times per week. Some of them go to the local power skating guru and work on their skating skill. This is my preference, I do not really want them scrimmaging, I want them skating. For the pro players, we go on the ice twice per week, once for medium duration interval sessions and once for agility and quickness training. The skating is supplemented with land-based agility training, a track or hill workout and yes, even some biking. You may be asking yourself, "What is the difference? As long as they are getting more fit what does it matter if they only bike or not?" To be clear, I am not saying that hockey players should not ride the bike. I have my hockey players ride the bike at times during the summer, just not all the time. And I think it is a great tool to use during the season. Here are a few of the pros and cons of using the bicycle with hockey players:

PROs I like biking because you can very easily adjust the resistance. It is relatively safe; no athlete is going to sprain their ankle riding the bike. From a skill perspective, there is a level playing field for different athletes. If you are running at the track, some hockey players have a great running stride whereas some athletes are not nearly as proficient. Finally, the player will get a great leg workout. When we do intervals on the bike they will tell me that their legs feel the same fatigue they feel when they are on the ice.

CONs I dislike the bike because it trains the hockey player in a hip flexed, spine flexed position, a position where they already spend a good amount of their time on the ice and sitting on the bench. If they are a student then they spend all day sitting at their desks in a hip flexed, spine flexed position. With these sustained postures we see shortening of the hip flexors among other adaptations. When a player skates she must extend at the hip to get a full powerful stride. If the hip flexor is tight they will not be able to get this range from the hip joint and will likely compensate by either taking short choppy strides or by hyper-extending the lower back. This will reduce their skating performance and may lead to overuse injuries.

One of the arguments against skating in the off-season is that it lets the player's groins recover from the use they get when skating. This is used to support the use of the bicycle as a training tool. If you look at someone bicycling you notice that their thighs stay parallel as they pedal, the movement is in the saggital plane. So you can see how this will not put the groins on a stretch the way skating does.

If I take an athlete who needs to abduct at the hip (which puts stretch on the adductors or groin muscles) to move in their sport and train them in a way that does not put any stretch on those muscles, can you see how they may adaptively shorten in response to the new demands? They are not being repeatedly stretched, so they do not need to be as long and they will shorten. Then if the athlete starts skating everyday, they are now putting those adaptively shortened groin muscles on repeated stretch and risk a strain. Not a great way to start training camp.

So my argument against riding the bike in the off-season is that it compounds muscle imbalances that already occur in hockey players and undoes some of the adaptive lengthening that is necessary in the adductor (groin) muscles. Both may reduce skating efficiency and contribute to overuse injuries.

I will finish by saying that there are some amazing fitness coaches out there who specialize in training hockey players, love the stationary bike, use it effectively as a part of their overall hockey training system and produce some very effective players. Clearly they are addressing the muscle imbalances and mobility issues in other areas of their training. My goal is to encourage you to continue thinking about the specific demands of hockey on your athletes and train them systematically with those demands in mind.

Facts About the Cannondale Bike

A Cannondale bike is considered the ultimate for all types of bike riders from occasional riders to highly experienced racers. Top efficiency, up-to-date design, and innovation are chief requirements with foremost bicycle producers and Cannondale leads the universal market with great performance bicycles. Cannondale was chartered in 1971, by Joe Montgomery, Jim Catrambone and Ron Davis, to produce backpacks and bags for camping and subsequently bicycle trailers for bicycle outings. The name of the business originated from the Cannondale Metro North train station in Wilton, Connecticut. In the late 1990's, Cannondale began producing motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and bicycles.

The motorcycle department lost cash thus having a sell off of that branch. In 1983, Cannondale turned to the production of aluminum competition and touring frames. The mountain bike frames were added next. The cycle branch became profitable and was acquired in 2003 by Pegasus Capital Advisors, which supported the company's reborn bicycle production. In February 2008, Cannondale was acquired from Pegasus Capital Advisors by Dorel Industries. At this time, Cannondale manufactured assorted types of high-end bicycles, specializing in aluminum (rather than steel or titanium) and carbon fiber frames, a technology which they originated.

The Cannondale bike scientific know-how grew with the enterprise. The initial road frame originating at Cannondale was produced in 1983. It sold for $ 350 and combined the frame and fork. The frame was at once widely recognized for the bigger down tube and larger head tube. Cannondale became the first high producer of manufactured aluminum frames, in an era when just steel frames were mass manufactured and aluminum was hand-made in low volumes.

The company later marketed frames with the CAAD (Cannondale Advanced Aluminum Design) identification. The CAAD4 model provided the S-bend aluminum seat stays for enhanced comfort. By modifying the seat stay and chain stay into a more "hour glass" shape (rather than the conventional round tube), Cannondale has been able to structurally tie in flex points to help cancel road vibrations while preserving frame stiffness in areas that require it.

Cannondale routinely provide bike items that are always subjected to a lot of dissecting and rebuilding. The company's principal goal is to maintain excellence and transcend purchaser requirements. The upshot is bike items which agreeably cater to complete execution and pleasure.

Picking a Cannondale bicycle can be a time exhausting process as there are a multitude of levels and choices of bikes and accessories that are available. Below are a few questions to consider while making your choice of a Cannondale Bike:

1. Cost: What can you afford? Cannondale bikes come in a large variety of prices so you will be able to find the right one that you can afford.

2. Bike types: Consider how and where you are going to ride your bike. Will it be long distances, locally for fun, racing or sprinting, on the road or off-road? Cannondale bikes will meet your need.

3. Hard tail or full suspension: Because they have less weight, the hard tail bikes will pedal will pedal more easily. While you will find a higher level of comfort in the Full suspension models.

4. Full suspension or hard tail: Hard tail is lighter and pedals more efficiently. Full suspension offers more comfort.

5. Additional items: There are lots to choose from so select the most important ones that you can afford and get the nice to have ones at a later time.

6. Bike shop: Select one that is convenient, has the right pricing and has a good reputation for service.

7. Discounts: Off season s are a great time to find bikes at a discount. Most stores will negotiate their price during the off seasons.

The superiority of a Cannondale bike is evidenced in the company's passion to be the world's best bicycle company. Cannondale strives to manufacture high-quality products that are produced with state of the art technology that preserves the degree of excellence they have earned in the industry.

5 Tips For a Successful Deer Hunting Camping Trip

With hunting season round the corner, you may have already planned your white tail deer hunting trip. So why not make it more exciting by organizing a deer hunting camping trip with your family and friends. This gives you an opportunity to hunt giant white tail bucks and also enjoy camping at the same time.

But first before you do this, there are few necessary preliminary arrangements that you need to make, to fill your outdoor activity with fond memories. Take a look at these 5 helpful tips to have a great hunting and camping experience.

I. If you wish to enjoy camping while hunting, make sure that your camps are situated far away from your deer food plots. A distance of several miles between your camp and hunting ground is most ideal. This will ensure that deer are not startled with your camping noise and smell and you have good chances for a kill.

II. Before you set out on your such a camping trip, see that you have all equipment including firearms, bows and arrows, safety belts, harness, binoculars in place. Also take care to safely place your equipment in locked boxes, when not in use.

III. When camping, it is important to carry sufficient food along with you that could last for some days. However it is advisable not to indulge in complex breakfast and have normal food instead. A well-cooked breakfast can unnecessarily add strong odours to your body, which can startle deer away. If however you wish to gorge on these meals, you must do it at the end of your hunting day.

IV. Deer hunting is a tiring experience and it could be several days before you find a prized head of a white tail buck. Hence it is essential that you are refreshed and completely relaxed every day. Ensure that your camp is set comfortably and is equipped with all necessary amenities.

V. Last of all before you set out camping, you should be completely informed about your state's hunting regulations. Children especially must be told of the importance of wearing orange vests while on a food plot and about not making noise while you are on a hunt.
