Re-Fuel Bluetooth Speaker Water Bottle

2-in1 Bluetooth Speaker & BPA Free Water Bottle While I was packing for a recent trip that would involve sailing from Punta Arenas through the Beagle Channel past Cape Horn and across the Drake Passage, I was looking for a way to play music but had limited space in my carry on pack. I found the solution in this water bottle meets bluetooth speaker by re-fuel. Weighing less than 1/2 a pound and carrying 12 ounces of your favorite liquid, this was the perfect solution for travel and fit nicely in my side pack pocket.

Nutrition Q&A with Adam Chase

We had a chance to interview Adam Chase recently and are excited to share his experience with being a vegetarian while competing in endurance events around the world.

Final Preparations Before 24-Hour Adventure Race

By Grant Killian Here’s a few thoughts about last minute preparations for 24-hours of Untamed New England, but it would easily apply to most any adventure race. You’ve probably worked hard building your fitness for the race, but with the race just a week or so away it’s time to take your foot off the gas.
