How to Keep Food Cold on Camping Trips
There's something about packing a few fresh luxury food items that can really add to an extended paddling trip. Kevin Callan has a few suggestions in his latest article about how to keep fresh food from going bad on a longer expedition. Using dry ice and wrapping perishable meat in cheese cloth are a few of the options. There's also a humorous little video he made to illustrate a few of his points.

New Product Announcement
Nomad kayak by Dagger

The new Nomad combines the predictability and forgiveness of the original series with modern creeking refinements. The redesigned displacement hull carries more speed, and the added volume and rocker allows for resurfacing in the stoutest conditions. The new Nomads also come in a true large, medium, and small version, for all paddler sizes. Add the strength, safety and comfort of ConTour Ergo outfitting and you have quite simply the greatest creekboat on the market, ready for any adventure, anywhere. 3-Boat Sweepstakes!
The current sweepstakes features three great boats for you to register to win: a Cruise 12 Angler kayak from Jackson Kayaks, an Explorer 14.6 DLX canoe from Pelican International, or a Strait 140xe kayak from Elie Kayak. The boat prizes all come packaged with other valuable items such as kayak/canoe sails from WindPaddle Sails, anchor systems from Squid Anchor, PFDs from NRS, paddles from Bending Branches or Aqua-Bound, and safety decals and boat lights from Illumarine. Congratulations to Donald Phillips from Phelps, NY who won a Small Stormproof Compact Camera Pouch from Aquapac just for entering this past week!

You'll be sitting down to a home-cooked dinner "In Short Order." Details? They're at In the Same Boat. That's Alimentary, right?
