Go Ape gift certificates are the perfect gift for an outdoor lover! Our forest adventures are the perfect gift experience for any special day, whether it be a loved one on Valentines or a treat for a hairy primate on their birthday. They also make a great stocking stuffer!

 

A Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course is an outdoor experience that provides participants 2-3 hours of outdoor fun and exercise.  The result is spectacular. The course allows participants to explore the park from an otherwise unobtainable vantage point while navigating through the treetops using zip lines, obstacles and tarzan swings.

 

We start by equipping participants with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let them loose into the forest canopy, free to fly on zip lines, swing through the trees, and observe the surroundings. Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests.  The Go Ape Treetop Adventure course gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones and above all, it’s a great outdoor activity for families, friends, and corporate groups.

 

We currently have seven locations: Rockville, MD, Bear, DE, Williamsburg, VA, Pittsburgh, PA, St. Louis, MO, Indianapolis, IN, and North Myrtle Beach, SC with more locations opening up in 2015! To find out more information about Go Ape! visit us online at https://goape.com/gift-certificates .

RealSticks from Vermont Smoke and Cure – Review and Giveaway — CLOSED

DO NOT COPY - PROPERTY OF ADVENTURE FAMILY IN MOTION

We were recently in Whole Foods Market and saw these RealSticks of AWESOMENESS! These are a perfectly healthy snack for people on the go as much as we are! Check out this review and giveaway for Vermont Smoke and Cure Turkey Jerky!

 

DO NOT COPY - PROPERTY OF ADVENTURE FAMILY IN MOTION
RealSticks – Vermont Smoke and Cure

 

These are called RealSticks. According to the website they are “gluten free and contain 50% less fat and 40% less salt than the leading snack sticks, and at least 80% less sugars than the leading sports bars. RealSticks are low (0-2) carb, dairy free, no MSG, and no artificial anything. No preservatives. Just 2 WW points in each 1-oz stick.” 

 

We received 3 flavors: Uncured Pepperoni, Ancho, and Honey Mustard.

 

Uncured Pepperoni: To me this is the closest to a stick of jerky you are used to. No Nitrites or Nitrates except for those that naturally occur in sea salt and celery juice powder. This is a gluten free product made from turkeys raised without antibiotics!

Ancho: This was my least favorite. When my husband handed this one to me, I took a bit and thought, “hmm not bad.”  Then the ancho kicked in. It left a bad aftertaste in my mouth. The website describes this one as: medium-spicy stick combines ground Ancho chilies other Mexican spices to create a complex, deep, slightly fruity, not-too-hot stick – we think of it as a turkey burrito stick with extra salsa!

Honey Mustard: LOVE THIS ONE! Made with real honey and real mustard (no artificial flavors!). This would be my ultimate go to! I would definitely purchase this one for me or the little one!

OUR THOUGHTS:

This is a great all around bag! We use a lot of camera gear and I am always nervous to accidentally expose it to the elements. This bag is great to quickly protect your gear from a flash rainstorm!

The versatility of the bag is essential. The ability to carry it on your back or by the top handle is a great addition.

The lash points are nice to quickly loop additional items, such as headlamps, bandanas, or even a dog leash.

The mesh padding makes a slightly heavy load more manageable. And the side mesh pockets are easy access to small items such as keys and phones.
