Welcome to the show, today I am joined by the owner and founder of Seek Outside, a popular tent manufacturer out of Colorado. Kevin is a great guy and has a ton of knowledge in tents, backpacks and all kinds of outdoor gear. In this episode, we dive into various gear selections, such as, choosing the right shelter, discussing the pros and cons of tarps, teepees, and double wall tents.
Seek Outside also makes a great wall-tent style synthetic fabric tent called the “Courthouse” and it makes for a great horse packing tent as well. I am a huge fan of Seek Outside’s Courthouse tent and have spent many nights in it this past season. We also discuss various styles of packable wood stoves and the pros and cons of each. Kevin also introduces a new, really cool, and super simple pack design which is extremely light for a pack that can handle gear loads up to 7400 cubic inches! Also real quick before we get started I wanted to tell you that as of tomorrow maybe late today Backcountry Fuel Box has a whole new site. We ran into some serious problems with the first site as there was no way for subscribers to login in and update their info. The good news is we fixed it. we rebuilt the whole site and you can now log in update your subscription, change your card info and all that good stuff. Also with the new site, we have a bunch of last months buddy boxes left over. So if you loved last months box so much you can purchase another one, or if you didn’t get signed up in time order your buddy box and you will get last months kickass box. If you aren’t signed up at all go sign up this months box is going to blow your mind. I am pumped for this box. There are so many goodies 99% of you will have never heard of. Also, stay tuned after the show as I have some a 5-star shout out to giveaway and it could be you. unless you haven’t left a review. in which case we aren’t friends. Go leave a review I am giving away free gear and swag every week to bribe you to leave a review. so do it.
