Go Prepared

Here in the pacific northwest, there is beautiful terrain from trees to wetlands, snowy mountains, and beautiful beaches. It is an amazing place to explore and see wildlife, go camping, and, last but not least, enjoy the awesome OHV parks all over this wonderful state.

That being said, mother nature is a very unpredictable and very temperamental force that could be sunny and great one minute and a blizzard the next. In this situation, you need to make sure you are prepared for any element.

There is a great company to the Pacific Northwest that specializes in survival gear. This is a website/storefront that has trued and tried gear that could keep you alive in the most extreme terrain. This company is Tonquin Trading. This company caught my eye in a sporting’s good store when traveling through Astoria Oregon, as I was walking through the store I noticed two fully loaded backpacks with the most well-thought survival gear. After seeing those packs, I thought people need these because people need to be prepared.
