My boyfriend and I are very outdoorsy. We remodeled a 1977 10ft Scamp camper last year, so we go on road trips, camping, hiking, and fishing trips a lot. There is so much to see round here, and camping at the beautiful state parks is very affordable and fun.
I think up until the day I met him, I never appreciated Arkansas. He grew up in the boy scouts, so he knows a thing or two about the state, camping, fire making, fishing and hunting, and I'm pretty sure his survival skills will come in handy one day, too! I spent most of my weekends and days off in Texas and Louisiana. But he showed me the beauty of this state! From waterfall hunting and rock climbing up north, kayaking on the Buffalo National River, hiking in central Arkansas (like on Pinnacle Mountain), to fishing in a swamp-like landscapes down south - Arkansas has something for every outdoor lover. You can even find diamonds! Find out more about Digging for Diamonds in Arkansas here.

"With the Swedish mantra in mind, “Straight backs are happy backs,” Fjällräven created the first Kånken in 1978 to spare the backs of school children, as back problems had begun to appear in increasingly younger age groups.
Simple, stylish and functional, the Kånken backpack soon became a common sight in schools around the country, quickly spreading to cities around the world as an iconic (yet highly functional) Swedish export.
Made out of durable, lightweight Vinylon F, the Kånken has a large main compartment with a large opening, two side pockets, a zippered pocket in the front, handle at the top, narrow, supple shoulder straps, a sitting pad in the pocket and logo that doubles as a reflector."
Besides my love for plain and simple Scandinavian design when it comes to my home AND wardrobe, in my opinion the Kånken is the perfect companion, if it's for school, travel, work, or outdoor adventures. Backpacks.com offers a huge variety of backpack brands though: Jansport, The North Face, Dakine, Herschel... you name it, they have it!
