Summer in Michigan isn't complete without spending copious amounts of time in the sun attending festivals, adventuring outdoors, making trips to the lake, and one of my families favorites, picking blueberries.
No matter what we're doing, I won't leave home for a day in the sun without some essentials that make adventures that much better.
1. Shades: Squinting all day is no fun. If you can, invest in a good pair of sunglasses.
2. Water: My Nalgene is usually always within 5 feet of me, staying hydrated is key.
3. Snacks: Adventures are no fun when you're hangry. I usually bring a Lara bar or fruit.
4. Adventure Bag: Recently my favorite bag is the Patagonia Atom 8L Sling bag. It holds all of my essentials (including my DSLR), is comfortable and convenient. (Below i'm wearing the Osprey Talon 11 which works great when I have a few more items)
What are some of your 'Summer Adventure Essentials'?
