Campfire Cooking: Tips around the Tinfoil

Posted by Deanna Yudelson on Mar 1, 2017 3:36:04 PM


The great outdoors is the ultimate escape from the stress of reality. When one strays from the beaten path, or in this case the concrete one, they can find peace of mind when they envelop themselves in fresh air and wilderness. The further one gets away from cell phone reception, the more inclined they become to embrace or even adapt to a simpler lifestyle. Fine dining comes second hand to a meal cooked in the woods under the stars and a smoky bonfire. If you’re planning on camping, you’ll likely want a freshly cooked meal, and there is nothing more satisfying than setting up a campfire then hearing the crackle and sizzle of your food heating up. Cooking in Mother Nature should require no pots and pans, and especially no cleanup.  Just remember to bring a fork and foil, and you’re in business.

How Badly are You Damaging Your Eyes?

Posted by Alex Repola on Mar 7, 2014 8:00:00 AM

Most people are aware of the need to protect their skin from harmful damage caused by the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. However, you may not be as aware of the damage the sun can do to your eyes. Wearing polarized sunglasses or other UV-protective lenses can help, but do you know the facts about eye damage? Unlike other parts of your body, your eye’s lens does not repair itself when damaged. Cells and proteins that get damaged will never be replaced, and over time, the damage to your lens may lead to serious eye diseases or possibly loss of vision.

A Rider's Right to Protect His Eyes

Posted by Marc Herschberger on Jan 30, 2014 8:30:00 AM

Every biker should have at least two different pairs of sunglasses with two very different sets of lenses, but most do not.  When people talk about motorcycle riding glasses, they often think of the middle of the day in the desert, with the wind whipping sand and dirt up into their eyes.  That’s great; most people have a pair just for that occasion, but what about the other times in the day where dark sunglass lenses can be a detriment?  What about low light situations where there still may be light, but not enough to warrant your normal motorcycle goggles?

Have you heard of yellow or amber lenses?  These particular lenses help to absorb UV and blue light, resulting in a much brighter view for the wearer, no matter if the sun is out or the fog is rolling in.  These lenses are best used during the less lit times of the day, such as dawn and dusk, but can also be broken out during cloudy or stormy days.  Now of course these lenses aren’t perfect for every situation, and that’s why we recommend the second pair of glasses that best protect your eyes during those hot, sunny days.

Don't Be a Fool. Protect Your Eyes With Polarized Sunglasses

Posted by Adrian Doggrell on Nov 29, 2013 10:30:00 AM

Many people are informed about the effects of too much sun exposure. We wear long clothes and hats, and we reapply sunscreen multiple times per day to prevent from getting so much sun, but often people forget about protecting their eyes. They figure that as long as their eyes aren’t blinded with light, they must be fine. Unfortunately they are quite wrong. The sun can damage your eyes just as easily as it can damage your skin, and sometimes you won’t notice until it is too late.

Most of the negative effects are minor and temporary, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get seriously injured from too much sunlight. The sun can cause problems ranging from light wrinkles to blindness and even cancer. Read below to learn the different ways the sun can negatively affect your eyes, and hopefully you will remember to bring your polarized sunglasses with you from now on.

Are Polarized Sunglasses Worth It?

Posted by Adrian Doggrell on Sep 12, 2013 10:30:00 AM

I have a lot of friends that don’t wear polarized sunglasses, and it always bugged me for some reason. I thought it was such a strange decision. I mean why take the time to buy a pair of non-polarized sunglasses? It is kind of like wearing shorts in the snowy weather. If you are going to go the trouble of putting on a pair of pants, why not take the time to pick out a pair that will keep you warm?
