The LK Dop Stok is one of those massively simple entirely successful solutions to a global problem: where to put your bottle of beer when you are in the outdoors.
Simply press the metal stake into the ground and you instantly have place to put two beer cans / bottles / soda tins / mugs / glasses etc.
Another one of those great ideas that will no doubt be invaluable when camping as well as at home or at a mates for a braai.

So I really like my Nalgene 32 Ounce Wide Mouth canteen, mainly as it is easy to fill with big ice cubes as well as easy to clean. Some people may be put off by drinking from such a wide opening though, and admittedly there is an increased opportunity for spillage.

I have a multitude of running packs and belts, mainly for hydration. But often I am off on a short road run and I just need a few essentials, and not all of my running shorts have pockets. Enter the CAPESTORM Stash Pack!

parkrun Big Bay is our home parkrun so you will excuse me for being a little biased!
I have run the Green Point and George parkruns and encourage you to try them all too — its heaps of fun experiencing other courses and realising just how widespread the parkrun movement has spread its good vibes!
The Big Bay route starts on the lawns of the (more…)
A quick outing on the Blue Route and all the Harkerville MTB routes are in the bag!
Where: Garden of Eden on the N2 between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay
Cost: R38 permit from SANParks
I previously blogged about the Harkerville Red Route which is certainly the most spectacular MTB route I have ever experienced. On our last Knysna trip I did the other routes available: the Yellow, Green and Blue routes.

Where: Garden of Eden on the N2 between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay Distance: 13.75km Difficulty: the majority of the route is on easy forestry roads; just the last couple of kilometers where the route […]
This 2 day hike definitely falls into the category of “adventure hiking”. If you have not dassied your way up the Lion’s Head chains and the India—Venster safety measures, you will not have fun on this route. At all. You will be doing more significant tricks than both these routes — with a backpack on […]

Unlike our home parkrun at Big Bay, this parkrun truly is in a park, and is mostly off-road. It includes sections of lawn, jeep-track and snaking single-track […]
