How Does Moss Work?

If you’ve ever been hiking through the woods and thought, “Ya know, I don’t know much about the moss that’s covering all these trees around me,” then the newest installment of CS favorite, Stuff You Should Know, is going to be your huckleberry. And if you’re normal and have never had those thoughts while out hiking, well, you’ll still find “How Moss Works” pretty darn interesting. Download it for free here.

Danner Crater Rim

I spent the last couple of days in Portland, OR with the wonderful folks at Danner (Danner is a client of Cold Splinters) and a few of the best writers on this side of the Internet (more on that to come later in the week). Danner’s MADE IN THE USA hiking boot, The Crater Rim, was recently awarded Outside Magazine’s Gear Of The Year award and I’d like to take this opportunity to say a little congratulations. Danner makes The Crater Rim in their Portland factory, and over the past couple of months, I’ve had the pleasure of walking around the Appalachian Trail with the boots tied to my feet. Read a bit more here and go try on a pair for yourself when you have the time.
