Braai-Jacks

We were lucky enough to visit the KykNET Outdoor Expo and got to saw some pretty cool outdoor stuff. This set of Braai-Jacks “clip on feet for braai grids” were being demo’ed by the manufacturers.

These metal legs clip simply onto your braai grid allowing it to stand above the ground over the coals without having to balance the grid precariously on assorted stones and or half-bricks.

CAPESTORM Stash Pack

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!

Harkerville Coastal Trail

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 […]
