Maintaining Your Outdoor Gear

This is Passport to Texas

If you’ve decided that winter is best spent indoors, then you can use this time to prepare for the outdoor season ahead, as our State Park Guide, Bryan Frazier, explains.

55—For a lot of the state the wintertime is fairly short, but it is a time where a lot of people consider it in-between seasons: hunting season has just ended; fishing season is around the corner…some people don’t really like to camp right now. So take this opportunity to really look at your gear: your tent, your boat, your fishing line. Clean your gun. Sight your bow. All those things where you are ready to go once the weather does turn—which is going to just be in a manner of weeks literally here in Texas before we’re into spring break trips and all of those fun activities that we like to do that are outdoor related. Don’t overlook this time to prepare and do some maintenance on your gear; it can save you some headaches, and it’s a safety issue. It’s something you really need to do during this down time or off season. Take advantage of that and it will get you motivated and that much more ready to get outdoors when the time does come.

That’s our show for today…with funding provided by Chevrolet…building dependable, reliable trucks for more than 90 years.
