We’re off to see the wizard, the wizard of REI!

After our camp out experience, and discovery of sub-par materials, we decided to trek north to the nearest REI store in the Twin Cities. For those who don’t recognize this store it is similar to Cabela’s only camping focused. We will be heading out tomorrow afternoon and we are excited about catching up with Portia Strasser while there.

We are looking forward to the awe inspiring, checkbook depleting, entity that is REI. Our list includes trekking poles, hiking boots, and of course, a replacement rain fly for our tent (see previous post). Another highlight will be the availability of experts to answer our multitude of questions.

Bring it on!


Details to follow, maybe even some pictures! 🙂

About Renee

I enjoy adventures. Whether running marathons, thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, working with Service Adventure, or working with youth as Program Director of Swan Lake Christian Camp for 9 years, I have encountered many an adventure. On this site I will try to capture the big and small ones for you. Enjoy!

  1. Next time you are up to the Twin Cities, make sure and stop by Midwest Mountaineering. It is the greatest outdoor store in the midwest (I used to work there). You’ll find more than a few employees who’ve actually thru hiked a trail or two. And if you see Bob in the camping department, tell him hello for me (but be careful he has strong opinions on gear!)
