Travel Accessories

We are frequently asked about some of the products/ gear that we use, so we decided to put together a collection of some of our favorite items that have stood the test of time. These are all items that we currently use and love. You will notice a buy button after each product. These are affiliate links from Amazon and other great companies. An affiliate link simply means that if you click through and purchase (costs you nothing extra) we get a few pennies too. If you enjoy what we do here, shopping through these links are a great way to help keep us continue to create and share.

Hydro Flask insulated stainless steel water bottle

These things are awesome!! Hot or cold. I have had times when there is still ice the following day!
