Satellite Phones for Sled Dog Racing

For generations, sled dogs have been known as one of the few reliable ways to traverse large distances over frozen landscapes. In frozen areas like Alaska, Canada, and Greenland, some places today are still only accessible by sled. Sled dog teams have contributed to mail delivery, supply runs, and exploration and were a major part of the gold rush in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Roald Amundsen relied on teams of sled dogs during his groundbreaking expedition to the North Pole. Undoubtedly, these hardy, fearless, and intelligent dogs are a part of history.

Who Needs a Fixed Site Satellite Phone?

When you think of satellite phones, an image may come to mind of a backpacker or mountaineer calling home on a handset from the middle of nowhere. Or maybe you think of a first responder in safety gear, checking in from a disaster relief area. Both ideas are accurate, but they aren't the whole picture — not all satellite phones are stuffed into a pocket to carry into rough terrain (although many are). Others are fixed site.

A fixed site satellite phone is part of a permanent installation within a structure, meant to bring satellite service to that location. The issue of the handsets needing a line of sight to an orbiting satellite is solved through the use of external antennas, allowing indoor use. So, who can benefit from such a setup?

The "Lure" of Deep-Sea Fishing Expeditions

For many fishing enthusiasts, deep-sea fishing is the ultimate experience. Miles of crystal-blue ocean on all sides; the cool sea breeze; the chance of hauling in a record-breaking catch — all are intensely attractive prospects. If this sounds wonderful to you, it may be time for a deep-sea fishing expedition!

Popular hubs for deep-sea fishing include Louisiana and Florida, which both provide several entry points into the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Most Pacific deep-sea fishing originates in Canada and Washington State. It's always worth checking marinas anywhere though to see just what they offer.

Tips for Awesome Autumn Camping

Tips for Awesome Autumn Camping

Let's face it: summer is just too hot for some people. Even if you love the outdoors, you can be driven inside by heat, humidity, bugs, and all the other less-pleasant parts of outdoor summer living. If this sounds like you, you probably can't wait for the cooler weather of autumn to get you out of the air conditioning and back under the trees and sky.

Autumn isn't the most popular camping season, but it has some great points that frequent fall campers swear by. In deciduous landscapes where trees change color for the season, camping provides a way to get right into the middle of those gorgeous autumn forests and surround yourself with the vibrant reds and golds of trees getting ready for winter. In other climates closer to the equator, autumn provides a break from subtropical heat and humidity that allows you to fully appreciate the beauty of Nature without all the sweaty stickiness that usually keeps you indoors. Plus, since fewer people camp in the fall, some campgrounds and national parks offer off-season discounts on camping permits— definitely worth asking about!

If the idea of fall camping appeals to you, here are some things to keep in mind.
