Get in Gear: Trekking Poles

When you're hiking up or down a steep trail, it would be nice to have "Go Go Gadget Extendo-Arms." Try this on for size.
Trekking Poles or Walking Sticks will help keep your balance, help you maneuver through tricky trails, and reduce stress on your back, knees, legs, and feet. Plus, your poles can serve other purposes like pushing aside spider webs and brush - very important to me.

Trekking poles now come in combinations with other cool gadgets. The Kaito hiking pole is not only light weight but comes with a compass and a thermometer attached, for the low price of $24.95.

Or if you like finding your own natural wooden walking stick on the trail, you can attach this Gorillapod to it and voilà- instant tripod for your digital camera. They attach to anything so you can get a sweet shot anywhere you want.

See you on the trail.
