We’ve teamed up with Eddie Bauer to make your fall as adventurous as possible. Whether you’re suiting up for a trek in the woods or planning a weekend in the backcountry, the outdoor innovators at Eddie Bauer have everything you need. And don’t worry—we’ve got the menu covered.


Do you smell that? It smells like campfires and warm nights are just around the corner. It’s time to get back outside and stay there for as long as the weather allows, and as a bartender and nature lover, I believe no adventure is complete without snacks and sips. When I pack for a camping trip, I focus on convenience first and foremost. Instead of bringing my entire back bar and all the tools in my kitchen, I choose a few drinks to complement whatever I’m planning to cook. Most of the time, I end up batching a lot of my cocktails to bring with me for the sake of ease—fewer things to remember means fewer things to forget. With the right gear from a trusted outdoor outfitter like Eddie Bauer (think: packable seating solutions, ultra-light clothes for layering, and multitasking coolers) and foolproof food and bev combos, you'll be able to soak up all the wilderness has to offer, plus a few creature comforts.

A few years ago on a trip to Block Island, Rhode Island, I went for a walk along a hill in the early evening, looking out over the ocean. The sun was getting lower and the sky was still luminously blue. I bought lemonade and a slice of watermelon from a nearby food truck, ate it on the highest part of the hill, then sprawled out on the grass, flat on my back, and blissfully thought, “This is peak summer.” I also thought: “Did I just get a grass stain my white shirt?”

Unfortunately, many of our favorite carefree summer activities are likely to leave us with bright green grass stains on our clothes. In anticipation of many more picnics and lawn games to come before summer’s through, I tested out common DIY solutions to treat grass stains. I tried four pre-treatment methods and compared the results after laundering to a sample that was washed with detergent only.

In our oh-so busy digital world, I’ve found that one of the most relaxing things you can do on vacation is truly disconnect. And what better way to get off the grid than heading out into the woods for a summer camping excursion?

If you’ve always wanted to try camping, why not plan your first trip this year? Full-on vacations might not be on your horizon, but safely camping outside is definitely something we can look forward to. You can start out small, spending a weekend at a local campground (many of which offer electricity, bathrooms, and even showers!), and once you feel comfortable roughing it, you can venture out to more secluded spots in the wilderness to really get away from it all.

Whenever they can, Californians Roman and Christina Molitvenik pile their three kids, Liam (5), Iris (2), and Matthew (6 months), into their motor home-away-from-home and hit the road. “We want our children to love the outdoors, and the camper is an easy way to experience them,” Molitvenik says, adding that it’s also been a great way to travel while social distancing.

And that travel is now both stylish and comfortable thanks to some thoughtful, Scandi-inspired touches: leather benches elevate family dinners; blonde cabinets keep things light and airy; and IKEA bedding beckons the family of five after a long day of hiking.
