nullIn other non-fire news, Merrell is offering a great deal to shoppers over the next few weeks. From now through September 15th, if you spend $90 or more in the online store, not only will you get some great new boots (or backpacks or jackets or tons of other stuff), but you’ll also get a free year’s subscription to Outside Magazine. Not bad, right?

So head on over to Merrell’s web site and size yourself up for some new gear, ASAP. If you’re looking for some good high-top midweight boots for our hot SoCal weather, I recommend the Moab Ventilator, while Backpacker recently gave some good praise to the Chameleon EVO.
