If you've ever been on the trail for more than a few days you know things can get misplaced or relocated. In the past, you've probably spent more time than necessary — digging through piles stuff and muttering "Where the @#$% did I put that thing?!"
Why is it, whenever you need a specific size wrench, it seems to have dropped into a black hole? You have every other size wrench in the set right where they should be, but #@$! — you can't find the one wrench you actually need!
Warmer weather is just around the corner. It's almost time to hit the road. You may be plotting your next adventure with itemized precision. Or you may be an itinerant; having no particular plan in mind other than to feel the open road under your tires.
Picture the scene: You are in a rented cabin in the Catskills for a few days of relaxation. You are miles upon glorious miles away from anything stressful, work-related, responsible, or pressing. Perhaps you’ve got a fire roaring in the giant stone fireplace. Perhaps you have a crockpot of homemade soup simmering; filling each room to the beams with the savory aroma of bubbling beef and vegetables.

What's the weirdest thing you've ever found in your backseat? Go ahead, think for a second. Think of that one frightening piece of whatnot for which there is no logical explanation.

We all have that one person in our lives who is impossible to shop for at Christmas. They always seem to be unimpressed, they already have it, or refuse to give you any feedback about what they'd really like. (To be fair, you've been given a pretty bum rap as a gift giver. C'mon. Most people would be happy with a Salad Shooter or a snuggie, but not Mr./Ms. Picky). At Blue Ridge Overland Gear, we have the perfect gift solution this year. Check out our Got to Go Bag. It comes in three tacti-cool colors; black, coyote, and gray. It's an essential everyday carry bag that anyone can appreciate. It's stylish enough to use as work satchel, large enough to carry a laptop, or great for packing a weekend fishing trip!
Great Friends. Great Gear. Great time. | Blue Ridge Overland Gear and Mountain State Overland proudly present the Overlander Flea Market on Sat., Dec. 10, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. You are invited to this unique event to buy, sell, or trade your gently used outdoor gear and overlanding equipment.
Picture this: It’s an unusually warm, low- humidity, mid-October day in southwest Virginia. Indian summer, technically speaking. It’s just after noon on a Sunday. You had more to eat than usual for lunch, so you’re kinda sleepy. Now you’ve got nothing planned for the rest of your afternoon but a date with a good book and your favorite hammock.
Why is it that most emergency repairs on the trail seem to happen at dusk, or when it's cruddy and rainy? Seriously. Can you remember the last time you made an emergency repair when it was sunny and nice out? Go ahead, think about it. We'll wait.
