Outdoors in Connecticut



  • Knots 3D - iOS and Android app with animations of how to tie a huge range of knots. Currently $2.
  • First Aid - a free and highly-rated app from the American Red Cross - iOS and Android.
  • A list of Scout-friendly suggestions for iOS and Android from Scouting Magazine. (Updated from the 2014 list that was previously posted here.)
  • An article in TechHive focussed on apps for hiking - again both iOS and Android.
Website Coding Acknowledgments

The site is built on the Skeleton CSS boilerplate. Code from the menu is derived from Isabel Castillo's website with a little bit of highlighting learned from 456 Berea Street a long time ago. The "slider" photo carousel is from Slippry while code for the contact form is a hybrid from Bell Online and CSS Tricks. All of that was provided to the internet community for free, we are grateful for the generosity.
