Aside postPaddling The Famous Inflatable Island in Algonquin Park

Paddling an inflatable island in Algonquin Park

Did you really go paddling an inflatable party island in Algonquin Park? I get asked about this a lot lately. The answer is – You bet your ass we did. We are just getting the story to you now…

 
This past summer turned out to be a tough year for the ManCamping canoe. It suffered a catastrophic blow when a friend fell on it after a few drinks by the bonfire at the ManCamping compound. We weren’t even camping when it happened! It was pretty funny to see him go ass over tea kettle doing it, but the canoe suffered the consequences. To make a long story short, it was in for repair for two and a half months!!

How to Make Bacon Salt

The Real Way To Make Bacon Salt

You love bacon. You put bacon in every recipe you can right? Well, have you ever tried bacon salt? You can use bacon salt anywhere you would use normal salt and it will add the wonderful bacon flavor your looking for!  (insert drooling and slobbering here)

When we first attempted making this – we failed. We failed enough times to perfect it so that you can enjoy it without the disappointment and waste of bacon. Now we are going to let you in on the super simple secrets of making bacon salt! Have we said bacon salt enough times to make you hungry?

Aside postNew Armytek Flashlights on ManCamping.ca

Armytek Flashlight Partner C2 Pro V3 XHP35

We’ve got exciting news! We have a few of the new Armytek flashlights on ManCamping.ca

We took a stroll down to the Armytek office and picked up three new flashlights. They have some of the same names as the models we currently carry but these new Armytek flashlights are even brighter than before. They could blind a bear and light up the skinny dippers from across the lake before, were not sure where to go from there to describe the new ones. Soooo… lets all be surprised but what comes out of our mouths on this one. 

A few quick points in case you are not familiar.

  • Lumens : the amount of light produced. (1500 lumens is roughly equal to a 100w light bulb
  • Beam distance: How far the light will reach
  • All Armytek flashlights use 18650 batteries and they last a REALLY long time. We have taken them 7 day trips, and continued to use them around the house for an additional month before even thinking about recharging the batteries.
