There are few activities more pleasurable than sitting outdoors in an Adirondack Chair enjoying a cold one. Even if you don’t have a lake house or grand view from your property, you can still enjoy the fresh air and comfort with a quality outdoor chair. This Cape Cod Folding Adirondack Chair is made with durable Trex material which means it never needs to be stained, painted, or sealed. This way, you can spend more time relaxing rather than fixing up your chair.

It’s amazing how something as simple as a Frisbee can be so fun (especially for dogs). If Ultimate Frisbee sounds too much like the hippie olympics to you, give Frisbee Golf a try. It’s the same concept as regular golf, except you need to get a Frisbee into the chained goal, rather than a ball in a hole. Best of all, there’s no heavy bag of clubs to schlep around – so you never have to put your beer down! This galvanized steel goal comes with three discs (Frisbees): a “putter,” approach, and long range disc.

The common excuse for not going camping is, “I don’t have a tent.” Getting outdoors for the weekend can do wonders to clear your head and reset your batteries, so buying some camping gear is a worthwhile investment. This Coleman SunDome 3 Person tent will comfortably sleep three campers on it’s 7′x7′ floor area. It only weighs 8 pounds, making it easy to carry along to your campsite if some hiking is required. It’s two pole dome design allows for a ten minute setup – so you’ll be able to quickly create a shelter if rain clouds start threatening your adventure.

Now that it’s well into October and good camping weather, make sure you have a good knife before setting out into the woods. Gerber has been a trusted name in knives for years, and they now have a Bear Grylls Survivor series. This Bear Grylls Survivor knife has a 4.75 inch half-serrated blade attached to a molded rubber grip (the end can even be used as a hammer). The knife has a few more tricks up it’s sleeve, it also comes with an integrated fire starter, blade sharpener, and emergency whistle. If it’s good enough for Bear Grylls to survive with, it’s good enough for me. Even if you’re not stranded in the wilderness, it’s a great companion for any outdoor activity.

When the temperature reaches over 70 degrees, I like to partake in sports that you can hold a beverage while playing. Badminton is an easy and fun game to setup and play, making it an ideal activity for an outdoor get-together. The Park & Sun Aluminum Pro Set pictured includes an official sized net, pre-measured boundary, four steel racquets, and three shuttlecocks (what we all call the “birdie”). Now all you need is some sand or grass and a case of beer.
