Stuff I Use

This is stuff I want to share because I like it. Some of it may be affiliate based but I genuinely like what it is and think you will too. Enjoy.

  • Amazon - If you are going to buy something on Amazon, please consider clicking this link first. I get a small percentage of the sale and it doesn’t cost you anything. It helps keep me working on these fun new projects. 
  • Capital One 360 (formerly ING Direct) - I’ve been a customer for years and highly recommend it. Sign up through my link and get $25 when you open a savings account and $50 when you open a checking account. No minimums and no fees.
  • Dropbox - Get 500MB extra space free if you sign up through my link.
  • Droplr - Quick and easy way of sharing just about anything. Get $10 credit if you sign up through my link.
  • Evernote - I don’t know how I stay organized without it.
  • GORUCK - I have some gear of theirs and have done a few events. It’s good stuff.
  • Hover - Looking to buy a domain name? Use these guys. Easy, clean, and simple.
  • Huckberry - Sign up for free and get $10 credit for your first purchase (through this link only).
  • REI - Been a member for years and buy almost all of my outdoor gear from them. Great customer service and return policy too.
  • SPOT Gen3 Messenger - I didn't think I'd like this as much as I do but it gives tremendous peace of mind to friends and family when in the backcountry. Get up to 20% off your service plan by mentioning me as your referrer. 

A lot of people ask what I carry on a daily basis. It changes but this is roughly it.
