Kula Cloth Makes the Perfect Stocking Stuffer for Adventurous Women

The first ever legit technical pee cloth

Kula Cloth™ is the first of its kind — an intentionally (and obsessively) designed, reusable, antimicrobial pee cloth for all the places you “go.” No more drip drying or hauling in and out a ton of toilet paper on adventures.

In a wilderness setting (or heck, even at a porta potty!), it’s very important to have good hygiene. Traditionally, we either pack in excess amounts of toilet paper and/or employ the ‘shaking off’ method (aka ‘drip dry’). Neither of these are good options. A pee cloth is a way that we can stay comfortable AND have a positive impact on the environment at the same time.

The Kula Clothis perfect for hiking, backpacking, mountaineering, mountain biking, kayaking, whitewater rafting, camping, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, spelunking, canyoneering, musical mountaineering, any type of running (trail, road, ultra), rock climbing, cycling, and so much …

Race the Rails 2019

September 7, 2019 • Ruth, NV
elynevada.net/2018/07/12/race-the-rails

The steam locomotive and the bicycle were both invented a little over ten years apart. Both changed the way we travel. Which one will prevail on September 7 at Race the Rails?

Participants will ride the historic steam engine, with their bikes, up to the mining town of Ruth, NV and the base of the Robinson Mine. At the sound of the train whistle, mountain bikers and road bikers race onto their individual courses to see who can get back to the depot before the train.

This is not a race against time or your fellow riders, it’s a race against one of history’s most powerful inventions! Mountain bikers test their speed and agility on a challenging ten mile course through the beautiful mountains surrounding Ely, while road bikers prove their speed and endurance on a 25-mile course along roads and highways in …

Editor’s Note: Primal Bliss

A wild person’s guide to the four pillars of adventure

One of the main benefits of outdoor adventure is how it connects us to all kinds of really cool, wild people. Personally I’ve always felt that outdoor adventure is way better when shared with others. The process of planning and executing a group adventure, whether it’s a two-hour surf session with a friend in Santa Cruz, a three-day guided raft journey with your extended family on the American River, a mountain bike weekend in Downieville with a dozen friends, an odyssey up the PCT with someone you just met while hiking the trail, or a few hours spent at your favorite ski resort doing tree runs with your kids, the shared rituals are pretty much sacred to me.

Building a lifestyle around the rituals of shared adventure has been my focus for about twenty years now. When I’m not working …

Lake Tahoe by Paddle

72 miles of blue water bliss 

By Trevor Husted

Robin McElroy paddles around the rocks on Tahoe’s North Shore (Tahoe Adventure Company).

Navigating the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe by paddleboard or kayak is as much of a good time as it can be an endurance test. The nation’s second deepest alpine lake provides paddlers with delightful mountain views, aquatic beauty, and plenty of challenges. Paddling the entire 72 miles around the lake by SUP or kayak is an extreme endeavor and is only appropriate for highly experienced and fit individuals. That said, you can work your way up to a complete circumnavigation by getting familiar with the numerous day trips described below. 

A word on safety

Do not underestimate the serious nature of exploring Lake Tahoe by paddle. It’s a large alpine lake that can have big water conditions. There have already  been a few rescues this year. …
