After my family went up to Lutsen, and we went to Devils Kettle falls, I have wanted to hike the Superior hiking trail. I have read SO much about it and it just makes me want to do it even more. I would love to be able to get up there before my 50K since that will be on the superior hiking trail. My race is May 20. I’m also extremely excited for that!
I would love to go out with Aaron and my dogs and get away for a couple of days. We need some supplies, like a good backpack and sleeping bags. I’m trying to slowly get all the supplies I need!
So in my search for things that I need, I found Cairn! Cairn is a subscription box that is geared for things for the outdoors. It cost from $22/month and you get 3-6 items in the box and most of the time you get some coupons too! There is also a bigger box that comes quarterly. It looks like fun, but I can’t afford that much! I thought why not try it out! I love the outdoors and I know that I need more items to take on our hiking trip! They said that it has at least $35 of Retail value in every box plus free shipping!
So let’s start with the box!
Cairn means a mound of rocks or stones built as a memorial or landmark and it’s normally on a hill or peak of a mountain. I had to look up what it meant, since I didn’t know!
I thought this saying on top was so cute! “One Hall Pass – Good for getting out of here and going out there.” Love it!
So here is all of the stuff that came in the box:
Salazon Chocolate Bars – I read about them and it said that they were made by hand using fair trade, organic, cacao beans. I’m not one for organic, but I know a lot of people are. The two flavors were Dark Chocolate with sea salt and caramel and then just dark chocolate and sea salt. I tried the one with caramel and it was really good. I like sweet and salty, plus the good thing is these bars only have 110 calories. I’ll probably just be eating these, but it’s nice to know I could bring a sweet along with me on my runs.
RV for the two: $2.50
Home School Socks – These are supposed to be really warm. They have what they call 37.5 technology. It’s supposed to be able to wick away the sweat you produce, while keeping your toes warm. They are tall socks and I’ll use them when I go snowboarding or when I am out with the calves for a long period of time. Maybe if we hike the SHT in the next month, I’ll have to wear these too!
RV: I couldn’t find out where to buy them.. even the website wouldn’t say anything
Hex Flex adventure tool- I have a close up picture of this.
I thought this tool was really awesome! It has 2 Phillips, a Flathead, and several hex ends. PLUS a bottle opener and it can be used to tighten bolts, as you can see in the middle of the “snowflake” it has 9/16 and 1/2. I was really impressed by this and even Aaron thought it was cool!
So that’s it for the box! Even though I couldn’t find the price for the socks, with the tool and candy bars that’s over $22!
