My stinkiest outdoor adventure? My first time mountain biking with my medic partner. Six and a half hours, grossly out of shape, no proper riding gear and no idea what I was in for. My pre-ride meal? Taco Bell. Yes, Taco Bell/Hell/Smell. Anyway, the nice cool weather of mid-July led to me puking my brains out all over the woods, my bike and me. Stink doesn’t even begin to describe the vile odor emanting from my body. I was actually able to cure forest overgrowth as I rode by and made a few beavers hide lest their dams go up in flames as I passed by. I ended up throwing out the shirt I was wearing; the stains from my recycled Gorditas as well as armpit stains made it a hopeless case to wash. And the smell. Oh, the smell. My dog tried his best to be able to roll around on my shirt as I was throwing it in a garbage bag.

I would love to win these products. Not for myself but for the people around me. I suffer from Anosmia (I have no sense of smell – EVER) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anosmia
This means that I can’t EVER smell my stinky clothes, I only get to see the reactions of my co-workers as I walk into work with my stinky bike commuting attire. I can usually tell when these are in need of a wash based on the looks that I get. I have a merino base layer that I love but I have not found a good solution for washing it. I am hoping that the Nikwax product is the solution that I am looking for. The other products will work great with my upcoming bicycle touring plans.
In terms of my stinkiest adventure I can not offer much insight except to say I could wear shirts or items that others would throw away and it wouldnt faze me at all. It’s allways fresh air to me.
I’m sure my wife and kids would appreciate these products much more than I.
Anyway I found your site thru bike forums and look forward to all the articles to read.. Thanks for the contest and the info about nikwax products.


My stinkiest outing that I can remember was when I was 9yrs old. It was Memorial day weekend and my family had decided to go camping. We headed for Logan canyon and decided to camp near Tony Grove lake. We made camp that evening and were preparing for bed when my mom took my brother and I to the outhouse, no big deal we had done this a hundred times before. However, this was the first time with my newly adopted brother who was also very handicapped. Long story short my mom and I were waiting outside for him for a long time when my mom finally decided to go in and check on him. She went in and about five seconds later I heard her screaming for my dad. Somehow or another my brother had fallen into the outhouse. My dad and a couple of other friendly campers were able to get him out after about 15 minutes worth of work. He was covered from head to toe in things that nobody should be covered in. All of the men and my brother proceeded to go directly to the lake where they all promptly removed most of their clothing and tried their best to remove the stink. Needless to say our camping trip was cut short and we left the next morning with the Windows down on the way home.


Some stinky stories. Keep them coming!


Stinkiest… well… on our last hike with our toddler son, he blew out a diaper and we changed it right there on the trail to prevent it from leaking out onto the Kelty child carrier pack. Then we packed it out.

Not sure I can compete with Doug there. 🙂

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
