Mountain Biking can be great way to stay in shape. Even if you are not a down hill adrenaline nut the XC world and Trail world is just as exciting. One thing which we all need on the trail is water, and quite a lot of it if you are riding for 5 or more miles. Backpacks with water reservoirs are a great way to store high amounts to keep you hydrated while keeping your bike lighter for maneuverability.
The Osprey Raptor 10 is one of our top choices for Fall & Winter biking. It’s larger storage area is great for when you need to shed layers of clothes and need a place to store them. A large 3L reservoir holds plenty of water and the bite valve is perfect although the locking mechanism is a little difficult to use with one hand. Having a separate tool area at the bottom of the pack keeps heavier weighted item down low close to your hips, and keeps you from having to search through the pack looking for that one specific tool.
Fantastic back support gives your plenty of breathability between your back and the pack, and waist straps are easily tightened on the go. A nice little plus is the magnet holder that keeps your mouth peace next to you instead and swinging around…
Leaf in Creek got the opportunity to raft with these guys and let me tell you, they did not disappoint! From great guides to clean bathrooms, their facility was the best we’ve seen!
If are you looking for an adventure this Spring or Summer be sure to give these folks at Adventures Unlimited a chance. Located just a couple miles from the drop-off point on the Ocoee River, its a quick bus ride and you’re on the water. Changing rooms and hot showers are provided as well when you are finished! Totally take your family and friends!

Redesigned hatch covers, a more intuitive cargo area ,and a much better designed seat positioning system makes this HD model a tough choice for other manufacturers to beat.

I picked up the Seabrook skirt by Patagonia at Leaf in Creek AND LET ME TELL YOU!! It is super soft and crazy comfortable!
From running to Target to hiking at Rainbow Mtn in the EXTREME Alabama humidity, this skirt is cute, light, breathable, and holds its shape after wear and washing.

Product Review: Patagonia Lithia skirt
We think Patagonia is the cat’s meow…but don’t leave it to us. Take a look at what wilderness ambassador, Vanessa has to say:
Full disclosure: I don’t often wear skirts. Not because I don’t think they’re darling…I have a few hanging in the back of my closet, but it’s just sort of rare that I think to put one on.
But I think I’ve grabbed for this Patagonia skirt three times in the last two weeks. It’s pretty awesome all around- comfortable, fits well (you know, doesn’t hug in the unflattering places) has neat prints, and is super versatile.
In fact, last weekend I went up to Kentucky Lake for a family reunion and got to put its versatility to good use. I wore it on the four hour drive up, out on the boat, and even to a spur of the moment wedding.
That’s right. We had a pop-up wedding in my grandmother’s backyard for my uncle and his long time girlfriend. They just decided, “Why not? We’re all here anyways!”
The wedding was obviously very causal, but I at least felt decent in my comfy new Patagonia skirt.

What is a Fidget Spinner?
Do you have ADHD? Even if you don’t, the Fidget Spinner is a toy you won’t want to put down. Having something in your hands will calm you if you are nervous, anxious, or aggravated. I have found that spinning my spinner even keeps me from the addiction of checking Facebook constantly.
Coming in different sizes, colors, designs, and quality, one thing they all have in common is a bearing that allows it to spin on it’s axis.
Pick up one today at Leaf in Creek and you will quickly learn the effects the spinner can have on you 😁

Bought this hammock to lighten my sleeping system for a bike packing trip. I’m 6ft tall and decide not to use it to sleep in, but I was right on the line, any shorter and you should be fine. This hammock has replaced my eno when I go climbing though, it’s much smaller and easier to pack with all my climbing gear.

Just $65 and you can be prepared to lounge where ever you find a great spot to hammock!
