How To Do It: Fall Picnic

Fall is one of the best times of the year.  The leaves are turning, the air is dry, and the afternoon temperature is perfect.  Take advantage and head to a scenic location for a Fall picnic.  Even if it’s just to enjoy some time with Mother Nature, there isn’t a better way to clear your mind (and lungs).  Here’s what you’ll need:

1. Persol 2953 Sunglasses: The sun still shines quite a bit in the Fall.  Prepare accordingly.
2.  Pendleton Roll-Up Blanket: The staple of any picnic is the blanket.  To be used for sitting and/or warmth.
3. LL Bean Hunter’s Zip-Top Tote: Sure, you could get a fancy basket, but the classic Bean Tote with a zip top will do very nicely.
4. J.L. Powell Trapper Creek Moleskin Shirt: Moleskin will provide plenty of protection from the elements as an outer layer.  Extra pockets, too.
5. J. Peterman American Baseball Sleeves Shirt: The coolest base layer this side of the diamond.
6. Billecart-Salmon Champagne: There’s always a reason to celebrate, and do so accordingly with a great bottle of champagne.
7. Hershey’s Chocolate with Almonds: For the sweet tooth.
8. Col. Littleton No. 5 Cinch Belt: Tough and sturdy, with a unique buckle.
9. Apple: An apple a day…
10. Fuji X10 Camera: Make sure you document the day (or evening) with this jewel.  There are plenty of postcard-worthy shots this time of year.
11. Wolverine 1000 Mile Montague Chelsea Boots: A great choice for this type of event…light hiking, comfortable, and stylish.
12. Bertucci A-2T Field Watch: So you can tell her what time it is.
13. “The Complete Sherlock Holmes” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: Catch up on some reading under the Fall sky with this very underrated classic. 
14. Laguiole Pocket Knife: You need something to cut the cheese.
15. Grown & Sewn Kax Pioneer Pants in ‘Carolina Cloth’: Tough as nails, and a great fit.
16. Georgia Cheese Tray: Remember where you’re from…
