Hanging out in a hammock to my surprise brings new opportunities. I was on mine and was asked what kind of hammock I was in; they had only ever seen rope-hammocks. Needless to say, hanging up an ENO in a common area opens the opportunity for meeting new people and enjoying the moment.
Freebies, Freebies, and more Freebies You’d be surprised to find out how much your taxpayer’s dollar gets you. Many national parks provide free amenities such as snowshoe rentals, guided hikes, and even boat rides free of charge!

Positivity and Perspective Growing up, my dad used to tell me ‘…train your brain to think positive thoughts instead of negative ones.’  Of course, being a teenager, I would let his advice go in one ear and right out the other! Guess what? It was actually a good suggestion. There is more than one way to view any situation you encounter.  It is vital as you enter each one, to challenge yourself to search for the positive. Your attitude is the most important aspect of your life; since it shapes all that you encounter. “Whatever happens to you belongs to you. Make it yours. Feed it to yourself even if it feels impossible to swallow. Let it nurture you, because it will.” –Cheryl Strayed   Meaningful Relationships Into the Wild, is a true story about a young man who gave up everything to go into the woods, alone. He strove to understand life’s meaning and redefine the true meaning of friendships and relationships. Christopher McCandless had it all, in terms of success in today’s world. He had two loving parents, a degree from Emory University and lots of money.  Unfortunately, for some reason his life was missing something. He took a venture into...
Have you ever found yourself on an incredible breathtaking adventure that you never want to forget? Me too! So I started finding different ways to put my memories into unique pieces of art.
For those of us in high school or college, midterms are already on their way and the pressure is on. This means it is time to buckle down and study. Probably not what you wanted to hear, but studying doesn’t have to be torture! Spice things up a little! Mix business with pleasure and try studying in your ENO hammock for a change. Making the transition from desk to hammock can be a little challenging at first. You’ll likely look clumsy, feel awkward, and possibly want to ditch this manner of studying altogether! Once you get the hang of it, (pun intended) you will find your ENO to be a great place to get work done! For those first time hammock studiers, here are some tips to make you the most studious ENOpian around, and the envy of all your peers. Sit perpendicular to the lay of the hammock. If you just lay down, it is hard to read, nearly impossible to write, and can be stressful on your neck. Also, sitting like this allows you to easily prop your book or laptop in your lap, and talk with those around you if you’re hammocking in a group. If you...
Choosing the Right grill Depending on how serious about your food and how much space you have to transport your grill, selecting the right one can be an arduous task.
The 7 Best Ways to Fit a Hammock Into Your Busy College Schedule 1- Hammock during your late night study sessions; Most college students have roommates, and often your study schedule will not match up with theirs.
Courtesy of Melissa WallerThe first year of college was my first time being on my own and knowing nobody. It was a difficult experience and homesickness was real. I am now on my third semester, have been able to compare this semester to the last two, and realized they have been drastically different. College is hard enough on its own, but there are a few things that help me though. I hope these gear items help you as much as they helped me improve my college experience!   1. Chacos (Complete with cozy socks) How can I even begin to describe the comfort and joy I find when wearing my Chacos? They are probably the most practical shoes I, as a college student, have ever purchased. Just slip them on to go to class, to the airport, on a hike, to a sporting event (I love them for football or basketball games), or even when the intramural field floods! I seriously love these shoes. I have worn my red-footed, ZX/2 Yampa Fiesta Chacos on so many different occasions and in all sorts of weather (Sockos are the best). So get yourself a pair of v-toe socks and rock them this winter! Strutting your...
Throwing back to their university years, ENO re-introduces nationwide college brand ambassador team. Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO), creators of nomadic outdoor and travel gear, is reliving the glory days of college by proudly announcing the re-launch of their ENO College Brand Ambassador Program. Already a commonality on campuses nationwide, ENO looks to strengthen their grassroots approach to spreading hammock love in a university setting with their new college ambassador team. Originally launched in Jan. 2012, the company went back to basics with their current version of the program. “Aside from creating the best hammocks on the market, ENO likes to have a good time, and we wanted our College Ambassador Program to reflect that,” said Amy Allison, Event Coordinator for ENO. “We’ve stripped the program down to the simplest, yet most effective, version to really put us on the university map.” The new program, that is actively searching for ambassadors for the Spring ’15 semester, will begin in 10 universities for its first year with plans to expand in future semesters. Ambassadors are expected to be the official ENO presence on their campuses, throwing hammock parties and providing social media content among other responsibilities. “We’re so excited to finally begin...
