The Seven Summits

Best of the Best
The highest mountain peaks of each of the seven continents of the world are known as the Seven Summits. Reaching the peaks of these mountains is regarded as a mountaineering challenge and this feat was first achieved by Richard Bass on April 30,1985. The seven summits include each of the highest mountains in each of the continents although different lists have slight variations among them but usually the same core is maintained. The lists of the seven summits vary slightly depending on the definition of a continent particularly where the border of the continent is. The two main points of variation are Mont Blanc and Mount Elbrus for the European continent and the second one depends on whether one considers the whole of Oceania as a continent or only the mainland Australia…

The Difference Between A Four-Season Tent And A Three-Season Tent

Hiking Basics
What’s the difference anyway? First, the nomenclature itself is a little misleading. So let’s start with the basics, and work our way up. The chief differences between four-season tents and three-season tents are wind resistance and the ability to withstand heavy snow fall. Consequently, winter tents typically come with an extra rigid exoskeleton and have steeply angled sides. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FOUR-SEASON TENT AND A THREE-SEASON TENT? By far the most popular choice, 3-season tents are lightweight shelters designed for the relatively temperate conditions of spring, summer and fall.
