Staying Warm on Your Camping Trip

You asked, we answered! How do I stay warm at night on my camping/backpacking trip? This hour seminar will give you tips to stay warm for various scenarios - when you have to keep your gear light on a backpacking trip, when you cannot have a campfire, when temperatures drop below expected, snow, and when you aren't expecting to be out overnight. While it is not too cold out in the Phoenix area yet, Fall is approaching and our nighttime temperatures will be dropping in the outskirts of the city sooner than we think.

This is a free event - yeah!

Give the Gift of an Experience This Year!

Gifts don't have to be tangible, nor do they have to be purchased. We will discuss some great gift ideas that keep giving. From full-service trips where you pay someone to plan everything for you, to ideas on the cheap that utilize the great outdoors in a way to create the most memorable of experiences. We will even tell you of some places that few people are aware of to help make your gift that more unique. It just takes a little bit of planning and taking out some time to spend outside with those you care about:)

This is a free event.

Best Hikes in the Phoenix Area - that are NOT Camelback!

Tis the season for hiking in the Phoenix area! But that means EVERYONE is hiking in the Phoenix area, i.e. Camelback. This seminar is about our favorite hikes that are not Camelback (and probably Piestewa Peak). From easier hikes for those that are just starting out, to the more challenging hikes based not solely on elevation but length and solitude. Even if you don't have the time to hike now (holidays can get in the way of hiking fun), you will come away with a list of hikes to start in the New Year!

This is a free event!

How to Get Your Grand Canyon Permit & Other Logistical Tips

It's almost time to get the ever coveted Grand Canyon permits for Spring (November 1st is the deadline for March) and it doesn't hurt to start planning now because it's a pain in the butt. Learn all the tricks of the trade from people that have to go through the convoluted Grand Canyon permit system on a monthly (sometimes daily) basis. Since Just Roughin' It is a Grand Canyon guide service, we know and sympathize with the challenges of getting a permit. We will also discuss some other planning tips like logistics for a Rim to Rim, alternatives to the main trails, off-season tips, what to expect when on your trip (like the flesh-eating Grand Canyon Rock Squirrels) and more!

This is a free event.

Bring paper and a pen for notes - we will not have any handouts.

Hit the Trail Running

Trails aren't just for hiking. Trail running is a fantastic way to get an amazing workout, work muscles you don't while running on flat, hard surfaces, get off the grid AND run on a surface that is softer for your joints - IF you mind the unevenness of the trails. It is also becoming more popular with numerous races in the valley alone that incorporate or are exclusive to trail running.

This hour will be taught by a certified fitness educator with 20 years experience in the fitness industry in all facets of exercise and fitness (and who currently is an Adjunct Professor at Mesa Community College). We will discuss tips to get started trail running if you never have before, how to increase endurance and speed and cross training tips to prevent injuries when on the trail. If you are not a runner, you will still gain some great knowledge that will still translate to your own exercise routine.

This is a free event.

Keep You New Year's Resolution, But How?

It's that time of year that everyone starts thinking about the changes they want to make for the New Year. Whether it is fitness goals, spending less time on the screen and more time face to face, i.e. quality time with other people or yourself, hiking more or trying something new, we ALL need help trying to keep that resolution. Even if you are not a resolution maker, making small changes in life that increase the quality of said life is not such a bad thing.

We will discuss ways to keep your "resolutions" in check and on track so that you have a better chance of keeping the promise you made to yourself. We will focus more on those resolutions that are fitness, adventure and disconnecting oriented, but the information can be translated to pretty much anything. This is not a counseling session nor is it a self-esteem "new year, new you" session. This is more of a be real and keep it real/tough love kind of seminar:)

We have a lot of great gear for hiking, camping and backpacking, plus some of the best brands in outdoor clothing and footwear so you can go on a hike, climb a rock or two and then grab a cocktail (or beer) - we are more of the cocktail types but you can't go wrong with a great local brew!  We are local owned and operated (this means we are not a franchise either) by a AZ native. We know, AZ natives are hard to find. Established in 2006 as a guide service in Grand Canyon, Havasupai and Yosemite, we know what the deal is with the best gear for the outdoors - whether out for the day or in the middle of nowhere for a week.  So come on in a say hey!  And since you are coming by, if you don't mind bringing us a cocktail (or beer), that would be super cool as well.

And now that you made it to our store page, you need to make it to our store! Mention the code GETOUT and you will recieve 20% off one regulary priced item (and yes, restrictions apply).
