This Sombrero is too sexy for me! This is the third Seattle Sombrero I have owned… I lost the first two (orange and red) over the years and now it is my new blue sombrero that travels with me everywhere I go…. From my short bike rides to the grocery store to my multiday trips around Costa Rica, this sombrero and I are inseparable. Here in Costa Rica we have a long rainy season, even though it rains for only one hour or two a day, this rainy weather can extend from May to November. This classic Outdoor Research Seattle Sombrero is a must have to protect yourself from light rain to serious tropical downpours, there is no way your head won’t stay dry with this Sea Somb!. The hat comes in 4 sizes and 10 colors… I love all the fun color combinations Outdoor Research offers. Besides being waterproof, it is breathable and features brushed tricot interior...

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...
