Essential Outdoor Survival Skills You can’t call yourself an adventurer without these critical outdoor survival skills. When heading into the great outdoors, or any potential survival situation, we all know to bring the necessary gear and supplies.

In other words, the most important tool you have isn’t in your pack, it’s in your head. Your wilderness survival skill knowledge could very well be the determining factor in the wild. BACK TO THE FUTURE : Irina Werning I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future..
Travel Recommendations, Travel Advice, Trip Planner A few years ago, we created Wanderfly to make the online travel experience more personal, fun and beautiful. From a dinner conversation idea, to a dozen employees crammed in a Soho/Brooklyn loft, to being honored as a top 10 startup, it has been a crazy few years. In 2012, TripAdvisor acquired Wanderfly so that millions of travelers around the world could find the same travel inspiration and recommendations that Wanderfly fans already enjoyed. 10 Places to Move Abroad and Extend Your Life - StumbleUpon Throughout history, people have been intrigued by legends of societies where residents thrived well past 100 years old. Today, there is skepticism whether any such place exists, but health scientists do scour the globe in search of medicinal remedies and other lifespan enhancements. In fact, many “pockets” around the world have been identified as “Blue Zones,” where locals enjoy high quality of life and health in old age. While failing to offer one “secret,” these regions share community factors such as diet, social integration, activity level, and outlook on life.

Practical Tips from Four Years of Worldwide Travel As promised in my last post about homesickness and long-term travel, I wanted to publish a follow up about the more practical side of my time on the road. I started out having no idea if I had packed the right things in my bag, worried about losing my passport (I tend to be slightly scatterbrained on the best of days) and curious if I’d last the full year around the world. 4 years later, I’m still moving – though I’m doing so quite a bit differently than when I first started out. I’m travelling much more slowly, opting to spend more time learning and eating. Where possible, I rent an apartment for a few months to really get a feel for the place and to get work done.
Airsoft. It’s Not Just For Kids: Using Airsoft in Your Firearms Training One of my sheepdog goals this year is to become proficient with a handgun and to get my carry license. I bought my first handgun a few months ago — a Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm — and have been taking defensive handgun classes at the U.S. Shooting Academy.

Ben Colclough: Kilimanjaro: 5 Things They Don't Tell You Last year, an estimated 25,000 people set out to climb Mt Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain. In so doing, they ate approximately 110,000 snickers bars, drank 70,000 litres of tea, expelled 75 cubic metres of intestinal gas and used 962 kilometres of toilet paper. More significant for the rest of us, they also produced some 25,000 personal accounts of the climb, tales of altitude, aptitude and attitude that have been written up, blogged about or televised more times than Britney Spears' waist line. With all this exposure, you'd be forgiven for thinking that a trek up Kili (as it's affectionately known by morons) would yield little in the way of surprises, every trivial twist and turn having been cogitated ad (altitudinal) nauseam in the pages of some glossy travel mag. Certainly this was my feeling as I embarked on the climb last month: there was nothing that could catch me unawares, right? Well, it turns out I was wrong.
