As with many people whose ancestors came from the Mediterranean, I did not inherit a tallness gene.
I clock in at a mighty 5’6″.
This means I am either on the tall side of short, or I am on the short side of average. Take your pick!
While I can’t say my outdoor pursuits suffered, I feel an extra boost for climbing, scrambling, and reaching would come in handy for time spent outdoors.
And with that in mind, I introduce something I’ve tested these past two years – The Titanium Step Stool.
With this marvelous piece of gear, I instantly gain an extra 6″ of height that lets me reach up the handholds, peer over the tops of canyon rims more accessibly, get in and out of our truck bed that much easier, and make it so I can see easier during parades!
Folding perfectly for easy and compact carrying while backpacking, it allows me to get into those hard-to-reach places.
As a bonus, it means I can spot things easily as Joan!
Overall I can’t say enough good things about my Titanium Step Stool, and it is a piece of gear I’ll use for decades to come.
Disclosure – I purchased the titanium step stool with our funds.
