Friday Round-Up: Summer Mantras, Road Trips and Adventure Inspiration
Unless you’ve been living in a deep, dark cave… You may have noticed that there is a lot of cool stuff going on out there. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each Friday. Every month, we’ll be choosing a theme that fits with the Osprey lifestyle. We couldn’t be happier that it’s finally June — which means we get to celebrate summer solstice — so this month we’re devoting it to all things summer related! Welcome to the Osprey Friday Round-Up!
Cold Splinters gave us a good summer mantra this week:
“Sit as little as possible; give no credence to any thought that was not born outdoors while one moved about freely—in which the muscles are not celebrating a feast, too.”
While you’re busy sitting as little as possible, you just might be taking some photos, and if you’re snapping some summery shots, then this photo contest is for you.
Nothing says summer like a good ole road trip, and if you like reading about the trials and tribulations of slowly making your way across the country, you should check out Gadling’s Traveling the American Road series.
And finally, just in time for the summer months, Outside has a brand spanking new look on their site. Cruise on over to check out the new design and plenty of summery articles and adventure inspiration, including tips on hot spots for fly fishing, more reasons for why we have to spend time outdoors and new mountain bike trails to explore.
