Presenting at the Great Outdoors DIY Weekend

As the gear editor at explore Magazine I've been tapped to do more than 10 gear presentations at the Great Outdoors DIY Weekend. The outdoor show is a collaboration between explore and her sister titles Cottage Life, Outdoor Canada (fishing and hunting) and Canadian Home Workshop, taking place this weekend at Toronto's International Centre.

Between stints manning explore's booth, I will give talks and presentations on four themes: portable power, winter gift ideas, winter commuter gear and picking and packing packs. Portable power will highlight some of the new powered products making winter warmer and other products that allow us to keep our digitized world functioning just about anywhere. Highlights from explore's winter gear line up and others that didn't make the magazine will be on display for winter gifts. Gear for walking, running or biking to work in winter weather is the focus of the commuter products presentation. At an area dedicated to getting newbies into the outdoors is where I'll present a how to on picking and packing day and overnight packs.

I'm looking forward to the show. Should be lots of fun and it will be a great chance to meet lots of readers.
