I don't know if I just got lucky, or if more people are reading the words that I write than I think. Either way, I recently was contacted by a company about a new partnership in the area that is going to help keep us all safe in the canyon.
MERUS Adventure Park and Midland Radio have teamed up to keep us all connected.
What Is MERUS Adventure Park?
I won't spend a lot of time answering this question, because I've answered this question already more than once. I'll simply say that it's an area southwest of Claude, right on the edge of the Palo Duro Canyon, that is an outdoor enthusiasts dream weekend.
From overlanding to exploring caves, they've got your outdoor adventures covered.
Midland Radio And MERUS Adventure Park Team Up
I spend a lot of time outdoors. Hiking, camping, overlanding...these are a few of my favorite things (to borrow a line from the song). Thankfully, I've never been in a dire situation while exploring the great outdoors. That doesn't mean it can't or won't happen.
To help keep guests safe, Midland Radio and MERUS Adventure Park have teamed up. Honestly, it's going to be great for all of us who plan to hit the trails at MERUS this year.
What Does This Mean For You And I When We Get To The Park?
That's the important question, right? I spoke with Caileigh from Midland Radio earlier today, and she told me that they will be providing GMRS radios for MERUS Adventure Park. It benefits everyone.
Everyone that visits the park must have access to FRS/GMRS radios. MERUS is a whopping 6,500 acres of land to explore, and traditional CB or cellphones just aren't going to cut it. The GMRS radios are more sophisticated, and more powerful.
If you don't have one and you're a MERUS member, you get discounts on Midland Radio gear. Not bad.
Talking with Caileigh, she did mention a feature of these radios that I think is fantastic. They've got NOAA weather radio included in them. Awfully handy when you can't get cellphone reception to check your weather app with.
I'm glad it's warming up. Let's hope it stays there. I've saved up enough PTO to have a few three-day weekends in my future, and I want to spend it away from it all out in the wild.
