Over the years we have seen a massive amount of items claiming to be essential survival gear and people are actually buying these items that may not help them stay alive when faced with a life-threatening incident.
When I asked my wife to marry me I really wanted to give my groomsmen a gift they found value in. I scoured the internet for information on the best survival gear and purchased individual items and put them into kits. Little did I know these kits were filled with items that held little to no value in a real survival situation. Sure…
There are many things to consider when choosing the right camping gear. From the price, reviews, and weight to durability, design and how useful the camping gear is. In front of all of these different aspects pertaining to wilderness survival gear and equipment, it is a wise idea to put safety first.
When choosing camping gear it may be a good idea to consider what situation you may find yourself in when gear meant to fulfill a leisurely pursuit all of the sudden becomes the gear that can save your life or ultimately lead you into a life-threatening incident.

According to the World Tourism Organization sustainable travel is the “management of all resources in such a way that economic, social, and aesthetic needs can be fulfilled while maintaining cultural integrity, essential ecological processes, biological diversity, and life support systems.”
Think about the multi trillion dollar tourism industry. 4 to 8 trillion (depending on what exactly you are measuring) is an enormous number. How many zeros? 4,000,000,000 … not there yet ……
Imagine creating a product that nobody wants to use. All the hard work, time, and money is wasted if you did not do your research. User research is key as it removes assumptions from the design process. Developing a deep understanding of your user is imperative to designing useful, usable and compelling digital products.
Seekr connects adventurous travelers to independent guides and locals. First, we developed empathy for our users. We conducted user interviews all over the world.

Have you ever thought “there should be an app for that?” This was the thought in my head when I was shuffling through 60 hours of footage I shot while traveling on Semester at Sea as a student. My goal at the time was to produce a film about fly fishing in far off places and tell the stories about the food, culture and people I experienced along the way. As I cut the trailer …

The state of Colorado has 22 million acres of public land. Yet, 85% of youth in Denver have not traveled west of Wheat Ridge. When I heard this statistic my jaw dropped.
My wonderful wife Sara and I are about to bring another human being into this world. It makes me sick to think about the new addition growing up in a society that doesn’t value the outdoors.
Throughout my BDW experience I have learned the importance of collaboration. It is particularly important, if you are like me and most often work alone. When people who seldom work in a team environment do so, they may find it hard to let go of their ideas and learn to build ideas as a group.
