The Nevada Vacation You Didn’t Know You Needed

Many people are surprised to learn Nevada holds some pretty wild superlatives: the state is home to some of the oldest living organisms on Earth, is more mountainous than any other state in the Lower 48, lays claim to the darkest skies in the contiguous U.S., and is second only to Alaska in the percentage of public land it harbors. Safe to say, the Silver State is so much more than casinos, tranquil desertscapes, and the famous Lake Tahoe. (Although these are worthy attractions too!) For the full Nevada experience, check out some of these lesser known treasures that make for a surprisingly unique vacation.

How to Build the Ultimate Bug-Out Bag

In the FX’s new series The Old Man, starring Jeff Bridges, John Lithgow, and Amy Brenneman, Bridges’s character—a CIA defector living off the grid—has to leave home fast when an assassin shows up. He grabs his bug-out bag and splits, eluding danger, and that got us thinking: Shouldn’t we all be that prepared? You don’t have to be in hiding to make self-sufficiency a priority. If you need convincing, just consider the recent rise in wildfires, hurricanes, and catastrophic floods.

Our Favorite Outdoor Adventures with Dad

In celebration of Father’s Day, here are some of our favorite memories of biking, hiking, and getting lost with dad. I had just turned eight years old, which meant I finally got to go on the annual Barronian backpacking trip with my dad, uncle, and cool older brothers and cousin. I’d wanted to join them for several years but was: (1) a brat and (2) too small. After promising that I wouldn’t complain, I packed my little clothes in a JanSport backpack. Then we set off for a lake in the Cascades. We got to camp, I had to pee, and my dad realized I’d yet to learn the backcountry squat. He poorly mimicked the action, told me to pull my sweats all the way to my ankles, and sent me on my way. I dropped trou, did a tiny squat directly over them, and peed squarely into my sweats. After hearing my yells for help, Dad extricated me from my mess and strung up some paracord to hang the pants dry. Once I was comfortably zipped into a pair of dry jeans, I thought my embarrassment was behind me. That ended when a few friendly deer wandered into camp and started treating the sweats like a salt lick. Some advice to the outdoor parents: ask mom to teach your daughters backcountry bathroom technique. —Abigail Barronian, senior editor.
