Campground Review: This business is located about 30 minutes northeast of Athens, GA in between Athens and the South Carolina border. Currently camping is only for customers who are either kayaking or going on a zip line tour. The kayaking rates aren't to bad, at $20 weekday/ $25 weekend for a 3 1/2 hour trip down the river and $10 per tent per night. So if your in the area $35 isn't to shabby for a nice weekend adventure. Sites are right on the river but if that's not close enough to the water for you, feel free to pitch your tent in the river on the sandbar itself. They also have 2 rustic cabins for rent if you don't feel like camping. All in all the sites could use a little work but its hard to complain when you get to go to sleep and wake up to the sounds of the river.
Gear Review: Good bye hatchet, hello multi-functional battle axe. As a ranger I receive gear to test out from time to time and this is my review of CRKT's Woods Chogan T-hawk. Before I got the opportunity to acquire this tomahawk I was in the market for a sportsman's axe, or something in between a hatchet and a regular sized axe. I had narrowed my search down to two that were both good quality and I had even gone to the store to get a feel for them both, but then I got the chance to obtain this and I couldn't be happier. Coming in at a total length around 19 inches this was perfect and just what I was looking for. The first thing I noticed was how sharp the blade was, I could literally fillet a fish with it and it easily split logs for our fire. The handle has stood up well to a few miss hits and is made of hickory. Along with the tomahawk I also got a protective leather sheath which makes it easier and safer for carrying. The hammer end is pretty standard and should be used with the sheath on (safety tip). Having already used it on several trips my first tomahawk has more than impressed, great job CRKT.
