I want to talk about my underwear This gear review has been a long time coming, for the past 4 years I've trusted ExOfficio GIVE-N-GO boxer briefs on every adventure I've been on. It honestly doesn't matter what type of adventure it is, I always make sure to pack my GIVE-N-GO boxer briefs. From camel rides in the Sahara to sleeping in snow dens in the backcountry of Montana, I know I've got a solid pair of underwear that will keep me dry and warm when it matters. More importantly, for the last half dozen international trips I have only packed 2-3 pairs of ExOfficio boxers for my entire trip. The beauty of these boxers is they are extremely quick drying, I am able to wash them at night in the shower and have a fresh pair of boxers in the morning. Plus, they are odor resistant with Aegis® Microbe Shield™ to eliminate odor-causing bacteria in fabric so I stay extra fresh on those...
MYTHBUSTERS: South American Land Travel and Transport South America is a culturally rich and diverse and geographically varied continent. When traveling to South America it is important to understand that each country, though often recognized for its iconic tourist attractions, is not solely that singular highlight. Each country boasts a vast array of, architectural styles, historical backgrounds, languages (and accents for that matter), rural towns, transportation, crops, landscapes and wildlife. It is easy to dedicate a week to a lifetime in each country in South America and continuously stumble upon new sights, sounds, foods and traditions. I highly recommend, before trying to jump from one well-known place to the next, to take the local transit, attempt a conversation with a local and explore the paths less traveled for a truly unique and enlightening experience.  Though planes are definitely the fastest way to reach most South America travel destinations, they are often times much more expensive and they are...
When the travel gods give you bad weather- keep calm and…drink wine! Currently in Argentina there are several severe wind storms, mainly within the province of Buenos Aires, passing through the country. This has resulted in much pandemonium around flight delays and cancellations including two of our own traveler’s flights from Mendoza to Buenos Aires. I checked in with these guests this morning to let them know that we were adjusting their itinerary so as not to miss important excursions in their next destination and that we had alerted the next hotel they would be arriving later than expected. They told me that they were having a ball and taking advantage of the extra time to do some additional wine tasting in Mendoza. I loved this attitude and think that it perfectly embodies the go-with-the-flow nature we all must strive for while traveling when circumstances out of our control arise. Why not make something great of it? This underlies howwe, the Wildland Team,...
THE TRIFECTA EFFECT: Tank, Fleece and Shell for your next Trek While hiking the Inka Trail to Machu Picchu, part of what makes the experience so exceptional is the vast array of microclimates you pass between. Though absolutely incredible, it can present its self as a challenge when creating a packing list. This past August when I was hiking the Inka Trail, I couldn’t have been more thankful for the three lightweight layers I ended up living in (and out of) while hiking. Here are three excellent choices for the perfect trifecta of hiking layering for your upcoming trek from ExOfficio! LAYER ONE: The quick drying and wicking GO-TO TANK for when the sun (much closer at such high elevations) beats down overhead. The wicking and quick dry is critical because, though you will be feeling quite hot while on the move, the wind will give you unwelcomed chills when you stop if you are wet with sweat.  LAYER TWO: The lightweight...

Etihad Brings Back The Glam To Flying Just imagine. I’m getting ready to board a 16 hour flight from Abu Dhabi to Los Angeles and I’m actually looking forward it; not just getting home to Anne, but actually to the inflight experience on Etihad Airlines, the national carrier of the United Arab Emirates. It’s one of the best in-flight services now, especially in Business Class, but it is soon going to take flying to entirely new heights: Etihad is bringing the glamor, along with the comfort, back to the skies with their new aircraft and enhanced in-flight services. I traveled to Abu Dahbi with the head of the North American sales office for Etihad, Patrick Dunne, who took me to the Etihad Innovation Center, a full size, walk-through reconstruction of the new A380 and Boeing 787 aircraft cabins, including mock-ups of The Residence by Etihad™ and the new First Apartments and First Suites. Our walk-through also featured...
