Dustin’s Camping/Hiking Tip

Timberland White Ledge Men's Waterproof Boot,Dark Brown,10 M US from Dustin shared camping-hiking tips after he spilled the beans for Kona Grill's secret strawberry basil lemonade recipeTimberland White Ledge Men’s Waterproof Boot,Dark Brown,10 M US

Not only did Dustin spill the beans on the secret Kona Grill Strawberry Basil Lemonade Recipe, he shared a camping-hiking tip too. He learned this tip the hard way. On his trip to the Grand Canyon, Dustin only took one pair of shoes which he didn’t wear before his adventure. The soles fell off! He had to borrow another pair from a Boy Scout group that was in the area. Lucky for Dustin…the Boy Scouts are ALWAYS prepared! The moral of the story: You never go hiking with brand new shoes and only one pair! I recommend buying a good quality set of hiking boots too!

Dustin’s favorite place to go?

Dustin loves Havasupai Falls (Havasu Falls)—Grand Canyon. It’s great because it has natural waterfalls, camping areas and hotels; he also enjoyed the 8-mile scenic hike.  Dustin did admit that “roughin’ it” around the Grand Canyon happens on a “7 Wonder of the World type of level” which isn’t really all that rough but it sure is stunning!

Thanks to Kona Grill and Dustin!
