Living the Van Life: Cooking a Meal Outside

Returning to our natural roots as humans comes with a serene feeling only Mother Nature can provide. Getting away from it all. Last week we did just that with Chad Derosa from Living The Van LifeNaturally we escaped to Pacific Northwest’s beautiful North Cascade mountains, a short drive from the Trayvax warehouse in Bellingham.

Cooking a meal outside can be quick and easy. Whether it is the backyard campout, one night camping escape to fully living off the grid we all have something to gain from sitting around hot coals cooking food as our ancestors did.

Featured Product: Keydex - The Best Key Organizer

by Brian Zig July 24, 2020 3 min read 2 Comments

Creating Everyday Carry products comes with the responsibility of designing more than a key organizer that doubles as a multi tool. All of our products are designed to last a minimum of 65 years.

It will no longer look like you are carrying around a golf ball made out of paperclips. I personally have ruined a favorite pair of pants from the constant friction from carrying keys in my right pocket. It was not until I introduced myself to the Keydex that I felt comfortable sitting down without keys pinching into my side.
