Looking for something really special this Valentine’s Day? This is the place to get it. Beautiful flowers, great gifts and the extra touch of one of the best artists in the business.

What a winter…too warm and no snow. Only place I found a significant amount of snow was Franconia Notch in New Hampshire. A lot of people on Cannon and the snow looked great. The samples of Thermal Bar I handed out at the North Conway EMS were a big hit and we sold every bar in the store.
Kayak season is upon us and if there is one thing worse that being cold it’s being cold and wet. Try eating a Thermal Bar just before you launch off into the whitewater.
Announcing the newest Thermal Bar dealer, Mountainman Outdoor Supply Company, Old Forge, NY. Stop in to see a great supply of outdoor equiptment and clothing and pick up Thermal Bars for your Adirondack adventure. Be sure to checkout the incredible inventory of kayaks. The manager, Nannette is a great lady; be sure to say hello and complement her on what a wonderful job they have done putting together one of the finest shops in the North Country.
Finally, fresh snow in Central New York. When rain turns to snow the results is the beauty you see in this shot. If you have a kayak, try putting in just on the east side of the bridge where Rt. 20 and Rt 13 merge entering the village. If the lower dam is closed you can make a right turn just past the first dam and go about 1 mile upstream. Lots of natural beauty and wildlife…and don’t forget to bring along Thermal Bar. It will make any cool weather outing more comfortable and when the water gets this cold, a life jacket is a must even though you are close to shore.
November trip on a cold, damp day was a walk in the park thanks to Thermal Bar
Colorado Powder Forecast very recently featured ThermalBar, check it out here or continue reading
You’ll probably have a chance to test your new snow gear over the coming week — two storms are coming in the next seven days, with Saturday’s powder day possibly being deeper than Wednesday’s. All the details are here, but be patient. While weather patterns are somewhat forecastable 7+ days in advance (i.e. it will be “stormy”), the details are hard to pin down more than 2-3 days in advance.
And speaking of cold weather, I recently had the chance to try out Thermal Bar. Basically, it’s a snack bar that you eat (think: Cliff Bar), and the main benefit is that the ingredients in the bar warm you up.
Thermal Bar® is a high energy, high quality bar loaded with organic grains, nutrients, anti-oxidants, omega acids and spices that help keep you warm in cold conditions. Whether trying to keep your hands warm while trout fishing on a cool May morning, gripping an ice axe on a frozen waterfall in January or swinging a hammer during winter construction, this bar will definitely raise your comfort level.
A few days ago I spoke with Bob Rose, the founder of Thermal Bar. He’s legit and is honestly pushing to do something new. He’s an outdoorsy guy and tried to concoct a new portable food that might provide nutrition and a bit of warmth while also being healthy. I ate the bars before going on a hike, so it was hard to verify that I felt warmer because of the bars simply because I would have felt warmer anyway due to expending energy going uphill. However, Bob assures me that they actually did scientific testing and there was a warming felt by the subjects. The taste of the bars was very lemon-y, but hey – I’m no food critic. The company recently had a big win by striking a distribution deal with Eastern Mountain Sports (and they also sell the bars online). Keep an eye out for these bars and maybe give one a try – at least it’s something different! Good luck to Bob and the team going after their dream and (hopefully) keeping us all a bit warmer.
Disclosure: I received two free bars from the company for testing purposes. I offered to return them when I was finished testing, but they felt it would be better if I didn’t do this.

Wallface Mountain Trip Report
Columbus day weekend, Chris Picinich and myself headed up to the High Peaks Region of the Adirondack Mountains to climb Wallface Mountain. Wallface is an 800+ foot vertical wall, suggested to be the tallest wall in NewYork. We drove up friday evening and made our approach by moonlight to wall face lean-to 2.7 miles in from the abandoned town of Upperworks. Upperworks use to be a small lumber town until they filled their quota and were forced to leave; it was an erie last sight of civilization to be seeing abandoned houses right before we met the trailhead, made me question what lay ahead of us in the next few days.
Scott Hovind, of Scott Hovind Photography, a wilderness photographer and truck driver in Michigan tried our bar recently and here’s what he had to say:
