Oasis of Stone: Visions of Baja California Sur


Gorgeous full-color photography by award-winning photographer Miguel Ángel de la Cueva, and evocative text by Bruce Berger (Almost an Island, There Was a River), bring the southern half of Baja California to life. Beginning with its unique geology, and moving on to the coastal, desert, and mountain ecosystems of Mexico’s little-known peninsula, this lushly decorated coffee-table book highlights the geology that created this “oasis of stone” and the flora and fauna that are make their homes here.

RTG PRO ALUMINUM 6" TRAVEL WATER SCOOP

 
 

It is a lightweight shallow water and beach scoop designed for travel. The aluminum bucket has 5/8″ diameter holes punched into the sides and the back of the scoop. The bucket of the sand scoop is 6 ” in diameter by 11″ long. The aluminum 1-1/4″ diameter handle is welded at a 20 degree angle so you can use your foot on the back of this scoop to push it into the sand. The handle comes apart in the middle for traveling purposes. There is a T-top reinforced aluminum brace to give this scoop added durability. The handle is 40″ long making the overall length of this scoop approximately 48″. The handle has a rubber hand grip for comfort. Made in the U.S.A. by Reilly’s Treasured Gold. If you are a traveler – this is the scoop for you! This is an excellent choice for a long handle travel scoop. Comes with a 90 day limited warranty against manufacturing defects.

Editors note: I prefer the solid aluminum because it strong and light. Where I hunt is lake beaches with clay and rocky shores, creeks and rivers. On the ocean beaches I prefer the strong wire basket type bottoms because they empty faster and speed up your hunt.
 

Yeti Rambler Tumbler – 30 oz

Don’t you hate it when your favorite beverage loses its frosty (or piping hot) goodness before you have a chance to fully enjoy it? We sure do, and that’s why we over-engineered our Rambler Tumblers with kitchen-grade 18/8 stainless steel and double-wall vacuum insulation. The result is a tough, hard-wearing personal drink cooler that maintains ice twice as long as plastic tumblers — and it works just as well for hot beverages. The lid that keeps your liquid in its place is easy to clean, shatter resistant and crystal clear so you know exactly how much of your drink you still have to look forward to. Dishwasher safe.

What others are saying…

have both the 32 oz and the 20 oz versions of this cup and they are the best there is in my opinion. The 32 seems to hold ice longer than the 20 and it’s the one I use for road trips and outdoor days. (It probably holds ice longer simply because you can put more ice in it than the 20). It fits in a standard cup holder so you can easily use it in your car. The 20 is actually my favorite of the two because it is smaller and less bulky. I tend to use it more around the house and office and it just has a good feel to it. Both of them never sweat and they keep drinks cold for a VERY long time.
I’ve given several of these as gifts and everyone has raved about them. Some have told me they looked them up before using them and were skeptical about all the hype, but when they used them, they became believers!
You won’t be disappointed I with this cup!

This product works very well. I have only used it a few times and each time it keeps ice in the cup for well over 8 hours.
