Duluth Pack’s FREE Outdoor Adventure Series Starts 1/15/13

January 14, 2013

Join us for Duluth Pack’s FREE Outdoor Adventure Series at the Duluth Pack Store, 365 Canal Park Drive, Duluth, MN. Tuesday’s at 7PM this winter. Tomorrow night begins with Walking on Thin Ice: A BWCAW Ice-out Adventure with LynnAnne Vesper.

LynneAnne Vesper has worked as a guide in the Boundary Waters for over a decade. Several years ago at the end of the dog sledding season, she had several weeks before her next guiding stint. As she watched the snow recede, an idea came to her. She strapped a harness to an aluminum canoe, tossed in a few packs and began walking into the BWCAW on the melting ice. When travel became too risky, she set up a base camp until the lakes melted and she could paddle home. Come hear LynneAnne recount her adventure on the deteriorating ice. Gain a taste of the unique experience camping in the middle of the wilderness and watching the slow arrival of spring.

Dutch Oven Cooking Demonstration with Recipe!

December 18, 2012

This past weekend at the Duluth Pack flagship store in Duluth, MN we wanted to create an experience that people could come and watch and then sample some interesting prepared items made in Lodge Dutch ovens, that you can make at either the campsite or in your kitchen. As you begin your adventure of cooking with Lodge Logic cast iron, hopefully you will remember the fun we had.

Dutch oven cooking can be practiced at home on the back porch and then mastered at the campsite, creating a menu of items besides hotdogs and hamburgers.  You’ll be able to create meals, desserts and snacks that your family and friends will wonder what cooking class you took to be so good! We would like to share with you one of our most popular recipes!
