Get your posture straight with these #walkingcanes
Working on a new batch of hiking sticks this evening with a few new tweaks and changes. My plan is to use linseed oil from now on instead of my usual weather-protectant urethane finish. I certainly believe it'll bring out the grain of the wood a bit better, plus I think it'll feel better in your hands. I also decided to finally listen to the advice of @dog_fence_ontario and add a reversed beer bottle cap (teeth out) to the bottom of the stick by pre-drilling (to prevent cracking) and attaching the cap with a screw. As an added bonus, every cap will be from a beer that I drink. #sacrifices #selfless And finally, after much stubbornness on my part, I will finally be adding a rope lanyard (not shown in pictures) to the top of each stick in order to assist with better grip. Thanks @mattjovanovic for teaching me that the rope is a good idea after all. Remember: All sticks are burned with my new artist's signature, which includes a lucky shamrock to ensure each owner Good Luck out on the trail. And as always, they are hand-carved with my Mora 511 and Diving Sparrow knives, and all wood is reclaimed from recently fallen trees. No live trees are ever harmed. Cheers, everyone and Merry Christmas! #thefallentrail #Niagara #woodworking #woodcarving #woodburning #hike #hiking #hikingstick #hikingsticks

Do you like hiking? How about ysing trekking poles? For some hikers it is an essential accessory, some doesn't reallly like using them. Besides the obvious, and important reasons, of reducing pressure from the knees and be more stable during the hike, there are many more use cases for trekking poles. See inside how furrher you can benefit from trekking poles. https://mountainoteslcc.com/trekking-poles-use-cases/ #trekking #trekkingpoles #hikingsticks #hikinggear #trekkinggear #hikingadventures #hikingtips #hikingstick #travelaccessories
We did it!! Year 2 (for us, but 56 total!) completed for the Summit Fall Hiking Spree. I absolutely love this tradition. It’s been such a fun bonding experience for us as a family and it sure is neat collecting the badges too☺️ • #SMPSpree #fallhikingspree #summitcounty #summitmetroparks #getoutside #hiking #hikingwithkids #familytraditions #bettertogether #hikingsticks #hikingstickmedallions #cvnp #weekendvibes #sundayfunday #naturalohio #thisiscle #outdooradventures #akrongram
🌴🌳🌲🌿If you’re into hiking and exploring the outdoors, look into getting a set of hiking sticks. They can help reduce stress on your knees, hips, and lower back. Hiking can be great exercise, especially with trekking poles🚶🏽‍♀️. With use of these and proper form, your upper body shares part of the workload of hiking, which in turn provides exercise to your forearms, arms, shoulders, and chest, and who doesn’t love a near-full body exercise where you’re outdoors and exploring nature?!🍀🍁🍂🍃🌳🌸🌻🌼🌵🌱 Where are your favorite places to hike?? Let us know!! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 #actifypt #hiking #outdoors #thegreatoutdoors #exercise #hikingsticks #trekkingsticks #jointstability #walking #nature

Had a really great time hiking Shorthills Provincial Park today with @mattjovanovic aka the Newt Farmer. A bit brisk outside but once we got moving, we warmed right up. Saw several deer and these crazy cool, mountain blue birds - only the second time I've ever seen them. Really neat. As always, enjoy the pics from today's adventure.

Opted not to go #hiking in Short Hills today. I know a few sections out there can be fairly steep and technical, especially for a guy who really can't afford to slip and fall right now. Instead, I parked just off of Victoria Ave. where it intersects with the #BruceTrail . Good place to start off from. Lots of unofficial parking in front of the fence. Nice, easy trails all the way to Upper Ball's Falls and back again. Very beginner friendly with some amazing views along the way. Give yourself a couple hours. On the way back, I met Jeff, an older-than-me gentleman, who I discovered is the man who owns that amazing hobbyfarm right along the trail, which used to have those two awesome peacocks. He told me he had those birds for over 25 years before they both got sick and died last year. Sad story too. A real bummer. He also sells a lot of farm fresh eggs, so bring a couple toonies if you head out that way and help the guy out. Enjoy the pics. #thefallentrail #Niagara #hiking #hike #BruceTrail #hikingstick #hikingsticks #iloveNPCA #DiscoverNPCA #BallsFalls
Back some 25 years ago, when my parents first moved to Grimsby from Fort Erie, I ended up spending a lot of my free time on the Bruce Trail, and of course, the Beamer Conservation Area. It's nice to be able to spend some time here again. I almost forgot how beautiful it is. I switched back to wearing my Oboz hiking boots today. I guess I just trust them a bit more. I like the brown leather look, protective toe cap and aggressive tread on the outside, yes, but it's how they're made on the inside that really makes the difference. Oboz have a unique cupped heel that really helps to hold your foot into place, as well as a pre-formed arch support to help fit to the natural shape of your hideous foot. Lots of toe room too in an otherwise snug-fitting boot. Also, they perform beautifully. Super grippy. I just keep telling myself, slow and easy wins the race. I'll be back at it again tomorrow. Am I ready for Short Hills? Possibly. #thefallentrail #Niagara #hiking #hike #BruceTrail #hikingstick #hikingsticks #iloveNPCA #DiscoverNPCA #Oboz #ObozHikingBoots #OutdoorsOriented #SorryPete
Today was a lot windier than it's been in a while, and although as a rule of thumb, I try to safely avoid the trails on such blustery days for fear of falling trees and/or branches, I just couldn't resist the incredible views of the #Woolverton cliffs along the mighty Bruce Trail in #Grimsby . The secret is to keep your head on a swivel. It's important to watch every step you take, but you also need to keep your eyes and ears open. A loud cracking sound is your cue to raise your arms high above your head, and run as quickly as possible in the opposite direction. No time to think - just react. Luckily, I haven't had to try it out yet, but it's hard not to think about it when the leaves are whipping all around you. That's the best strategy I've come up with so far for not getting killed out there. Any thoughts? Other than not going hiking in the first place, would you react any differently? On the way back to my Jeep, I noticed that the sun had disappeared across the landscape, so I looked behind me and the sky had transformed itself into a dark shade of grey. I figured the rains were finally coming, so I doubled my pace - no more sight-seeing. Then, a bit further down, I thought I heard the slow-rolling rumble of thunder fast approaching, so I doubled my pace once again. Good news! My back felt great, the thunder was either a one and done or what I heard was the roar of the wind raging through the treetops, and the rain totally held off. Also, I met a guy named Matt at a section where the trail was completely blocked off by a fallen tree, forcing both of us to go around through the moss and the rocks, and we had a really nice chat about all the best spots to go #kayaking in #Niagara . Overall, it was a great day. #thefallentrail #hiking #hike #BruceTrail #hikingstick #hikingsticks #iloveNPCA #DiscoverNPCA #GoLocal #Vasque #hikingboots #OutdoorsOriented #UpCannabis
Pro Tip for those whom are starting to collect these medallions but keep bending the nails. Harbor Freight sells these micro-sized drill bit set that will fit for the nails. The trick is to do it by hand as facebook member Tim Sullivan is demonstrating. Then finish it by hammering in the rest of the way.

Pat finally bought a hickory hiking stick at the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve for $9.95. I bought my hickory hiking stick here over 15 years ago for $7.00 dollars. I have hiked all over the United States with my trusty hiking stick. We did a beautiful 7 mile hike on the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve this morning, fishing this afternoon, dinner at Ad Astra in Strong City & wonderful music in Cottonwood falls this evening.

Day 1 of 3: We did not get a spot to backpack today so we hiked Grandview trail to horseshoe Mesa! I wish I had a word to describe the beauty but I couldn't even fathom how huge the Grand Canyon is and how small we feel walking into it. Can't wait for day 2 when we actually backpack down! Thanks for being such a great hiking buddy @krissajohnson The sticks we used helped us so much 😂 #grandcanyon #krissyanddannel #hikingwithfriends #grandviewtrail #beautiful #mothernature #southrim #blessed #hikingsticks #whyaretheycalledpoles

Oh the places you’ll go with a Brazos hiking stick! 📸: Joe Simpson
Tag 2: 26km die ersten 11km gefühlt gekrochen. Dann kam der Flow... ich sehe hier keine anderen mit Stöcken. Bin so froh, sie zu haben. Gibt mir Kraft, Entlastung, Stabilität und mit meinem Regenponcho kann ich damit Schatten am Strand zaubern... Erster Pfeil des Tages, Sonnenaufgang, Schatten mit Stöckern, heute Motivation mit runtastic. Hat super geholfen... #runtastic #caminoportugues #womenwhohike #hikingsticks #wanderstab #rioalto #orbiturcamp #camino #jakobsweg #flow
