Packing With Duluth Pack - For The Camper

Today’s post is going to be a continuation of our Packing with Duluth Pack series. Last time we focused on the Jet-Setter, but today’s post is for The Camper.

Hiking, canoeing, sitting around the campfire, and sleeping in tents is The Camper’s idea of a fun week and vacation. Especially in the summer, campers spend a lot of their time on weekend camp trips, vacationing in the BWCAW, and relaxing with nature. If that sounds like you, we have a few recommendations for what you can pack to make your life the best it can be while camping.

Packing With Duluth Pack - For the Road-Tripper

This is the last post in our Packing with Duluth Pack series. In the past, we focused on The Jet-Setter and The Camper, but today’s post is for The Road-Tripper. The best thing about road tripping right now is that it might be the best choice for travel this summer. It’s distanced, it’s easy, and it’s a great way to see the continental United States on a budget.

Some people prefer driving through the rolling plains, mountain ranges, and coastal cities of the US over flying. Many of us have fond memories of road trips with our families from a young age. Whether it was from California to New York or from Duluth to Minneapolis, road trips are something that almost everyone can relate to. If this sounds like you, or you’re planning a road trip soon, this guide is for you.

Exploring the Minnesota North Shore | Duluth Pack

Exploring the Minnesota North Shore

The Minnesota North Shore is the expanse of coastline spanning over 150 miles that starts in Duluth and continues along Lake Superior into Ontario. Over 3 million people visit the Northshore every year, and it's not hard to see why. There are state parks, hiking trails, historical sites, and scenic towns all along the path that are great for any hiker, camper, or canoer to stop and explore. Be sure to make a day or weekend out of the experience, as it's easy to fall in love with the scenery, so packing smart is a must if you're going to stay a bit longer. Let's go over some of the sights that make the North Shore one of the best hiking trips you'll ever experience. 
Aside from the starting city of Duluth (which is a must-stop of course), there are dozens of spots to stop and enjoy the natural beauty of the state. The first major must-see is Two Harbors. At 24 miles from the start, Two Harbors features the only real working lighthouse on the North Shore. It also has the Sonju trail, which allows you to see an ore ship being loaded. 
The Essentials of Trap Shooting | Duluth Pack

The Essentials of Trap Shooting

People are antsy to get outside now that the nation-wide stay at home orders are starting to wind down. So, what new outdoor activities should you consider now that you can go out? Go trap shooting with a group of friends. Even though some restaurants and bars might still be closed, gun clubs are open. Trapshooting is a great American sport that is even older than professional baseball in this country. So, what do you need to know about participating in this exciting sport?

Trapshooting dates back to the late 1700s. The first recognized competitive event was held in Cincinnati Ohio in the year 1831. The original targets for the sport were birds released hats in a random sequence. Glass balls would come to replace the birds in the 1860s. The clay discs that are used in today's competitive shooting arrived to replace the glass bulbs in the early 1880s, about the same time Duluth Pack was founded (1882).
