Check out our new, exciting Travelers Stick™. This stick is great for camping and hiking, as it easily attaches to a backpack when not trekking through the woods!
And don't forget the Leather Case Accessory.
How hiking and our hiking sticks go together...
They go hand in hand.
There's nothing like a good wooden walking stick, is there? It's a completely different feeling from using a pair or metal or carbon fiber hiking poles. Wood is far more resilient. See Section Hiker, backpacker and blogger Philip Werner's article on us here.
"America is a land and culture that have always been marked by people pushing back new frontiers not only geographically but socially and technologically as well. In this century especially, psychologists and others have offered an endless stream of strategies for feeling better becoming successful, discovering ourselves, and realizing the “American Dream.” Perhaps if nothing else this trend has supported the notion that wellness and health are a composite of many complementary regimens and decisions, that no one activity can respond to the multiple needs and aspects of any human being.
The challenge then is to find and apply those activities that do most to enhance our total well being. I believe that we are about to see great changes in our society. One of the most important will be people s turning away from media-entertainment-technology, an all-too-passive distraction to those activities that offer a direct, honest, in-touch participation-involvements that facilitate real wellness rather than hyped promises. We will begin demanding positive pay offs that “do something.”
Imagine someone advising you at sixteen to invest just $100 in a stock that would grow at such a rate that when you are fifty years old you would be a multimillionaire. Your financial security would be assured for life. Thls kind of opportunity is extremely rare. But suppose that during your youth, someone introduced you to an outdoor activity that if faithfully practiced and enjoyed, would reap lifelong benefits of an astounding magnitude-benefits that would almost guarantee enhanced, lifelong, high-quality health and wellness.
This book is about such an activity: hiking."
