La Sportiva has updated the much loved Bushido with a new upper and an additional 4mm of cushion in the midsole. The La Sportiva II still has the precise fit, stable ride, and grippy traction of its predecessor, but is now better suited for longer days on the trail.

The Osprey Talon 22L is a lightweight and fully featured backpack that’s perfect for peak bagging, quick hikes, and long days on the trail. The Talon 22L provides an impressive blend of comfort and features for a sub 2lbs day pack.

The Speedgoat 3 is a max cushion trail shoe from Hoka One One that’s quite possibly the most popular trail shoe around right now. The Speedgoat 3 continues with the exact same midsole and outsole as the Speedgoat 2, but brings in a revised upper to address some complaints about the v2’s fit. I’ve been wearing the Speedgoat 3s over the past few months on hikes, trail runs, and even some road runs, and will share my thoughts in this review.
The National Parks of America are full of mountains, deserts, valleys, and everything else in between. All offer natural beauty and spectacular views so it’s no wonder that they’re extremely popular with RVers. While all of them will make for a remarkable vacation, there are three that are a fantastic place to start for anyone. The one thing they all have in common (besides the beauty) is RV hookups. While you don’t need hookups to enjoy an RV vacation, they sure make life easier.
New England hiking trails don’t get as much love as their western/West Coast counterparts (kind of like skiing), but they’re definitely worth trying out if you have a chance.
