June's Fuel Injection Woes


Last year this time I was returning from Yellowstone National Park when June, our beloved 1998 4Runner, began chugging as we drove down the interstate.  I was able to limp June home and worked with my mechanic to get her up and running.  It turned out I had a bad ignition coil and our mechanic did a great job getting it replaced.

Review: Ausangate Socks - Alpacor Hiking Socks



Specifications:
  • Weight: Medium
  • Material: 70% Alpacor® Yarn / 30% Nylon
  • Size Tested: Men's XL (13-15)
  • Price: $19.99
Key Features: 
  • Compression rib across instep and arch
  • Naturally anti-microbial
  • Ribbed body and turn welt keeps socks in place all day
Socks tend to be the most overlooked piece of outdoor apparel but they can make or break a back country trip.  I am a huge fan of wool-blend socks and was excited about the opportunity to try out Ausangate Socks new medium weight hiking socks made with a blend of Alpacor® Yarn and Nylon.  I spend a lot of time in my hiking and work boots and prefer socks with built-in compression to help relieve the stress of standing and hiking all day.
