    We’ve taken this trip two years in a row, now, and it’s safe to say it’s going to become a tradition for us (I may or may not have already made reservations for next year already).

    It is no coincidence that a bag of fresh, squeeky cheese curds would blend perfectly with that color palette. And a bottle of Spotted Cow to add the greens and browns.

    Now I am thinking road trip time.

        Where did your TB bag go lately

        Which state park(s) did Eric’s Luminary 15 visit this weekend?
        Well, one of them was Castle Rock State Park in Oregon, Illinois.





        And if you’re wondering

        Walker, my Wilderness L15 was supposed to come in the mail on Saturday but was delayed, and therefore, didn’t get to come along on this weekend’s adventures. Hoping to see it in the mail tomorrow!

          Chicagoan, thanks for posting all your great pics! I moved cross country from the Northwest this past year and with everything going on, I have not been participating in the outdoors adventures I have in the past. It's fun to see your good outings. :)

            Since hiking is also an easy way to stay the heck away from people (which isn’t the easiest thing to do in the Chicago suburbs) I’ve been keeping my six feet by hitting the trails of one park or another every weekend.
            I find a lot of the places I go on the internet (namely, Instagram) and I post pictures hoping others who live near me might be inspired to visit them, too.
            Illinois may be, literally, the flattest of all fifty states, but in my mind it’s also one of the most beautiful.
            This coming weekend I’m driving about five hours north for an overnight backpacking trip at Newport State Park (all the way toward the tip of Door County, Wisconsin). Super popular park (it’s not uncommon for all their sites to be fully booked) and a site opened up last minute. I originally was supposed to hike there in spring, but they cancelled the original reservation because of COVID-19. Making good on my plans and making it the last trip I’ll take for the year.
            I’ve lived in the Midwest my entire life, and have found there are two seasons: when I enjoy being outside, and winter. Trying to stretch the “being outside” season as long as I possibly can this year.

                  Damn, this is a handsome bag!

                  Not only do I love the combination of Wilderness and Coyote...



                  ...but my pet cat, Pepper, loves it, too!

                      Not quite Door County and missed the peak for fall colors, so I settled for Manitowoc, WI on the coast of Lake Michigan with some local, fresh that morning, Cedar Valley cheese curds, Cedar Valley string cheese, and only available in Wisconsin New Glarus Brewing Spotted Cow. Also shown is my burnt orange medium DOP "catch-all" with a French Blue COW inside. My phone made me a better photographer than I expected. Could not quite get a picture to cover all the matching colors. The string cheese would have blended well with the remaining snow on north side of wooded area up there from last week's snow storm.
                      (If you know anyone one from Wisconsin, I highly recommend the Manitowoc Minute on Youtube for some good laughs to brighten your day. "Doncha know you can do it real quick now")

                      This one tree in its microclimate must think it is summer and the other gave up for the Wisconsin winter.

                      I had a prior planned trip to Manitowoc so no out of the way miles or fuel use incurred. Save the planet, eat local cheese curds.

                      Comment


                        YES! Manitowoc has some nice beachfront, @organicfamer! A few years back I got to spend the night at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Schwartz House in Two Rivers. The nearest Starbucks (because priorities) was in Manitowoc so I drove down there the next morning for coffee. Wound up at a similar or maybe even the same beach you enjoyed. Lovely area, and the cheese assortment doesn’t look too bad, either!

                            Not pictured but super useful this trip: the Pickup Truck!!
                            My coworkers and I would meet up for picnic dinner in the hotel outside courtyard - socially distanced - after very long days, to relax and hash out the day's work... the PUT was great to bring beverages, cutlery, napkins, random stuff....
                            I'm very happy I have two of them!

                              First post, but I’ve been lurking around here for a little while. I just took my new SG33 out on its maiden voyage to the beach and wanted to share. It easily swallowed our whole picnic, a large towel, extra jackets, a water bottle, and several other miscellaneous personal items for us and for Lester (our dog). It was a joy to carry! The great thing about this bag is that it will take as little or as much as you want to pack. Happy Saturday!

                                My monster truck was a champ in carrying 2.5 stuffed full sized paper bags worth of sanitized groceries upstairs in one trip. While you cannot tell in the photo, I had multiple layers of groceries going on (with the light items on top) to include items such as heavy soup cans, kombucha bottles, and glass bottles of fermented veggies. While it was a two handed carry, even as a short person, I managed it without worry.



                                As always, I love its tri compartment design, and my three sizes of trucks remain some of my most used bags at present.
