EQUUS Magazine Article: Is your hay too old to feed?

While coming out of the mountains on I-70 just west of Denver, a tire blew out on the trailer. Exiting the highway at Colfax/I-70 was convenient as there are several large parking lots with plenty of room to put on the spare tire. Unfortunately, about 15 minutes after getting back on I-70, a second tire disintegrated, and no second spare on hand. What happened next ws expensive, time consuming, extremely inconvenient, stressful, and totally unneccessary. This article in The Trail Rider magazine may help you be better prepared.

Klean Kanteen Wide Mouth Insulated Water Bottle Product Review

This is the best insulated water bottle I have ever owned. I have been using the Klean Kanteen Wide Mouth Insulated Water Bottle with Loop Cap for the past three months. I find it very easy to carry. My Klean Kanteen has a 16 ounce capacity. Before heading out, I fill the bottle with ice then top it off with tap water. The Klean Kanteen keeps water icy cold all day, even during the ninety plus degree days we've had this June. It is not unusual to open the Klean Kanteen the next morning and find it still has ice. I leave the Klean Kanteen in the truck or backpack. If I'm travelling on commercial aircraft, I empty it, remove the cap, and carry it in an outer pocket of my backpack through TSA security without question. I've carried my Klean Kanteen multiple times through TSA airport security for both domestic and international flights, railway, taxi, bus, museums, countless meetings, float trips, hikes, boating, and the beach. It's there when I need it and it works. I wash the bottle in the dishwasher and hand wash the cap. At roughly $23.00, the 16 oz Klean Kanteen is kind of expensive but the convenience of having that one ice cold bottle of water at hand is worth the few extra bucks. The icy cold water helps keep me hydrated, refreshed, and water has zero calories. I have several other bottles including Nalgene, Camelback, and disposables. I hate the waste of disposables bottles. The Nalgene and Camelback are both excellent bottles and I use them all the time, but having an insulated bottle takes the quality of my portable water to a new level of appreciation.
