50 Campfires : Daily Outdoor
Summary: Daily Outdoor is a bi-weekly roundup of camping & outdoors tips, tricks, gear, interviews and more. Hosted by Nick and Clint from 50 Campfires, this show is part Wayne's World, part public access - but all authentic. We hope you'll enjoy hanging out around our campfire with us!
NASA put their best minds to work, and developed a lightweight, compact material that Prima loft took over - and worked into sleeping bags. While we haven't tried it, we thought the crossover between space and camping was pretty interesting. We also check out the new Diamond Grip from Yaktrax - perfect for anyone who needs to move across the frozen winter tundra... Lastly, why are we still using disposable drinking straws? They're filling our oceans with plastic, and there are so many great alternatives on the market. Enjoy!
An artist in Minnesota has left a scary sculpture at the bottom of an old pit mine lake, appropriately named "Crystal Lake" of Friday the 13th bad guy Jason Voorhees. Also, we talk about the new Light Phone 2 and what Clint liked about the original Light Phone. Enjoy!
Nikolas Green is a young man with a YouTube channel. To celebrate his 70th follower, he decided to spend a night outside...camping for his first time...in a blizzard. Overnight, his videos received millions of views - not because he was an expert camper, but rather because he showed his authentic experience of camping for the first time. We also talk about the re-release of the Nokia 8110 cell phone that boasts a 17 day battery life. Maybe it's time to get rid of our smart phones and de-evolve with technology? All that and more - enjoy!
We recently came across an auction to spend a night at Camp Crystal Lake - the scene from the original Friday the 13th movies. Not only is it a real place, but for the right price - you can spend the night there on FRIDAY THE 13th!! The guys have mixed opinions on the topic. IN addition, they overview Glerups wool slippers and the new underwear brand BN3TH.
As most campers know, glass is a big no-no at the campsite. A single beer or wine bottle can cause havoc for kids, pets - and anyone who enjoys spending time barefoot outdoors. We recently got a shipment of The Drop - wine in a can, and we taste it for the first time. In addition, we talk about a few points from a recent article we published "10 Things Every American Should Know About Our National Parks." Enjoy!
One of our favorite camping meals is made by Maine-based Good To-Go. Backed by the skills of an Iron Chef-winning co-owner, these dehydrated meals are spicy, natural and delicious. Even better when we combine them with Outdoor Bill's 7-Layer, 7,000 calorie dutch oven brownies. Enjoy!
For as long as we can remember, Clint's been trying to convince Nick that zero drop shoes are where it's at. On this episode of the Daily Outdoor, Nick shows up wearing the newest Coalton shoes from barefoot shoe company Xero Shoes. Clint's reaction is priceless. Enjoy!
When Nick and Clint traveled to the Northeast in the summer of 2018, they had the fortune of connecting with a guy named Own Rachampell who worked for Darn Tough Socks. Owen's claim to fame? He had hiked the entire Appalachian Trail in just 4 months. We thought his story and personality were so interesting that we had to talk to him again. We hope you enjoy!
Believe it or not, January is a pretty busy time around the 50 Campfires offices. It's trade show season, and we're out looking for trends and gear that'll make our summer camping trips more enjoyable. On this episode, Nick is broadcasting from the Venetian Resort while Clint mans the studio back in Minneapolis. Enjoy!
What's your trick to getting outside and staying active during the cold winter months? Ice fishing? Cross country skiing? Snowshoeing? We break down some of our favorite winter activities - and look for yours. Enjoy!
On this episode, Clint and Nick discuss GoPro getting out of the drone business, and the life-saving beer that comes complete with a blanket and a knife. Plus lots more on this weeks episode of the Daily Outdoor! We'd love to hear what you think - and include you in an upcoming episode!

We didn't believe it until we saw it with our own two eyes : waterskiing in sub-zero temperatures over the New Years holiday?!? Also, we check out the new TinCup Whiskey X Danner boots collaboration - and what does the acronym C.O.L.D. - what does it mean?
At the end of every year, the editors from 50 Campfires get together to pick their favorite gear they've used over the past 365 days. The winning selections become known as "Gear of the Year". If you're looking for new camping, hiking or outdoor gear - give this episode a whirl.
