Brazos Walking Sticks announced the launch of its beautiful wood Traveler’s Stick (TM), which breaks into sections, in seconds, from a full 55 inches to a compact 19 inches. Traveling by airplane, in a small car or on a bike with one’s favorite, full-size, handcrafted walking staff has been practically impossible -- until now. Travelers, geocachers, RVers, scouts, outdoorsmen, outdoorswomen, campers, backpackers, hikers and safari travelers now have a wooden walking stick choice over cold metal and brittle plastic.

The new Travelers Stick™ offers the same quality, stability and utility of a one-piece stick, yet unscrews into three equal parts for easy transportation. Unassembled, this sectional walking stick will fit easily into an airplane’s overhead bin, in a backpack, strapped to a bike, or in the trunk of a car. With its small and discreet size, this staff can be taken virtually anywhere.

“For true connoisseurs of wood hiking or walking sticks, leaving your favorite one at home when you travel has always been a huge source of frustration,” said Warren Owen, Founder and President of Brazos Walking Sticks. “We’ve solved that problem with the Traveler’s Stick, not only because it is truly portable, but also because it is fully-functional as an everyday staff. It was challenging, but our hand engineered precision won out.”

“This product is a perfect fit for geocachers,” comments Tom Phillips of Groundspeak Inc. “Their adventures are taking them all over the world and now they will be able to take their favorite walking stick with them.” Groundspeak saw the potential of working with Brazos to redesign the traditional walking stick to better meet the needs of the Geocaching community. The result is the new Brazos Traveler's Stick. And Brazos Walking Sticks is working with Groundspeak to offer a special logoed and trackable stick worldwide. Brazos can also ship free domestically for $20 anywhere in Canada [plus $10 brokerage fee] and inexpensively globally through International Checkout. Folks were able to see a Travelers Stick first hand at GeoWoodstock IX on July 2, 2011.

In a popular 55-inch assembled size, the oak Traveler's Stick is just the right size for the majority of people looking for a handcrafted, wooden walking stick to use during their global travels.
