I thought this might be a good photo to accompany a post plugging my friend Ron Niebrugge’s new site Outdoor Gear Deals. Why? Because I’m looking so p-h-y-n-e in my flash orange jacket that you can clearly see the need for staying on top of fashion, even in the wilderness – ESPECIALLY in the wilderness. A while back some of the outdoor online retailers started running a “Deal of the Day” on their websites to draw traffic – offering some pretty good prices and great deals from time to time. As that marketing strategy has burgeoned, Ron did the world a favor and compiled a webpage that shows a bunch of these “Deals of the Day”. I’m sure he’ll add more sites to the page as time permits.
By the way, not all the gear I’m wearing in that photo is what I’d call flash – the backpack, an old Gregory daypack, I’ve had for nearly 15 years now, and I think I bought it for $45.00 at a year end sale. Not too shabby for a pre-internet Deal of the Day.
So bookmark Ron’s webpage above, and save yourself money while you buy cool gear – go ahead and get your shoppin’ on. And remember, orange works well in the winter.
