The Best New Gear for 2008
Sweatin' on the SnowTubbs Sojourn Start Kit
My sister just moved to Anchorage, Alaska: Home of moose, the midnight sun, and lots and lots of snow. She's a super-active, can't-sit-still woman, so she's a little concerned that the cold weather will keep her from getting out and enjoying nature. So she'll love this beginner snowshoe sets from Tubbs. There is one for women and one for men, and they include the snowshoes, poles, and a how-to DVD. But you don't need to know someone in Alaska to buy these. Anywhere that gets serious snow -- Buffalo, Wisconsin, Maine -- are perfect for practicing snowshoeing. And an hour burns about 500 calories -- meaning the hot chocolate with whipped cream afterwards is guilt-free!
