A guide for what you need to buy, read or consume to enhance your recreation and travel experience


Chariot CX2 Jogging Stroller

$1,000; www.chariotcarriers.com/en/US/Products/Sport-Series/CX/CT_10101309

What, you think this is too pricey (it's more than I spent on my first car) for a jogging stroller for your precious little one? Come on, doesn't your tot deserve a fully pimped ride when you're out on your morning run? This model has everything: drum brakes, a five-position reversible handlebar, water bottle cage, an extra-wide cockpit for your rug rat and a gazillion pockets and cubbyholes for all your parenting and running needs.


Rescue bands

$8.25-$35; www.rescuebands.com

At one time or another, what fashion-conscious outdoorsman or woman hasn't thought about using their bracelet or key chain to save lives? Wait, you haven't? Obviously, you haven't heard of Rescue Bands' bracelets, lanyards, luggage tags, etc., made from "Paracord" (parachute rope cords) that can hold up to 550 pounds. So if you're in need of tying something (or somebody) down in the back- country, for instance, just unravel your bracelet and have at it.

Lise Brunet, a French pollster, to the Associated Press concerning the rudeness of the French people: "In 2012, one thing is clear; the French are irritated and want a return to good manners. They've had enough of rudeness … reached a limit."
