Holiday Greetings from Purple Lizard,

Here at Purple Lizard, the holidays always get us thinking about how we spend the rest of the year.This holiday season we at Purple Lizard would like to take the time to offer our sincere thanks to all our loyal Lizard Maps customers.

We do our best to appreciate the opportunity that each day brings to appreciate the gift of the outdoors in our lives, to encourage friends and family to share in its beauty and the adventure it brings. 
Just like you, we get super busy and the things we wish we prioritized sometimes slip to lower on the list.  Work gets busy and we don't take that ride, or that hike, or that day in the sun that we planned to. The next day, we remember our purpose, to bring the best of outdoor recreation to our customers and to always seek to appreciate it in our own lives. 

We know that our time in the outdoors, among friends or alone, is precious and critical to our happiness, health and well being.  So each day we recalibrate and we recommit. To bringing beautiful, functional maps that offer some of the best of outdoor recreation to our customers, and to remembering every day what outdoor experience and adventure brings into our lives!

This holiday season, and throughout the year, we offer our gratitude to you for helping us remember every day what outdoor adventures and experiences can mean. Your stories and your adventures inspire us each and every day to continue to bring the joy of outdoor experience into our lives and the lives of our customers. 

When you give the gift of Lizard Maps to yourself or your loved ones, we understand that you are giving something more special than a Lizard Map, (as beautiful as it may be). You are giving an experience of the outdoors and all that that will come to mean in the lives of the people you love.  Thank you for sharing the love of Lizard Maps and for being with us on this adventure!  Have a Lizard Map facilitated adventure story you would like to share?  We would love to hear from you! Email us at info@purplelizard.com. 

Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones,

Purple Lizard Maps

The novelty and adrenaline of running my first major race unfolded before me and I suddenly realized that, in many ways, I was getting a lot more out of this than they were.

The adventure began at the Congdon Run Trailhead in the Otter Creek Wilderness at FS 303 with a friendly shuttle and equipped with the Purple Lizard Maps the shuttler recommended for navigation. The day was overcast, but no rain, as the duo plodded along the trail with Steve relating many memories of hiking with the youth group long ago. Otter Creek at this point wandered among green grasses in a tranquil manner, and the first river crossing could be negotiated with crocs. A connoisseur of maps, Steve diligently studied the Otter Creek version of the map, remarking on some of the whimsical quotes scattered within the map such as “Rivers know this: There is no hurry, we shall get there some day.” Winnie the Pooh.

If you are starting from scratch and need gear, don’t fall for the myth that you need a ton of specialized gear to have a great time enjoying the outdoors. Most of what you need is already in your home. Think about what you need to keep your children happy at home and ask yourself if they will need it when you camp. No need to pack up your entire kitchen, or break the bank on specialized equipment.
