How to Live Like a Vermonter in Fall (Wherever You Are)

For about 10 months out of every year, most Americans are content to be who they are. Come fall, there’s a switch. From the first crisp of the air to the jeweled-toned fall colors that fuel the brochures of every inn and Ivy League school, people suddenly want to be Vermonters – if not in… Read more »

Don’t be a Creeper When You’re a Peeper

This is the time of year when Vermont and our New England brethren are thrust in the national spotlight for little more than our natural beauty. It’s time for fall colors and that means leaf peepers. Honestly, it’s so objectifying. Can somebody please get John Oliver on it? We could use a little bit of… Read more »

Things to Do Over Labor Day Weekend in Every US Time Zone

You could accuse Ibex of being Vermont-centric, and you wouldn’t be wrong. We love us some “freedom and unity” (our state motto rocks, does it not?).

Warren Falls: photo credit Michael Sipe We’re a New England company so we talk about a lot of things associated with the north east- things like firewood, maple syrup, variable weather and hiking with dogs.

Why You Should Wear Merino Wool in the Summer

First of all, one billion sheep (worldwide census, circa 2011) can’t be wrong. Come summer, sheep around the world shed their heavy wool for a lighter-weight variety. The average sheep only lives about 10 years ‒ they’re not going to spend five of those uncomfortable. But we’re not resting on our laurels for this one…. Read more »

Happy Fourth of July from Ibex

Happy Independence Day! It was some forward-thinking in 1776 that set out the philosophical foundations of our country: equality, inalienable rights, power granted from the consent of the governed, and more. And this (see below) – this – is how we honor those game-changing ideals? Say what?!? Not so fast, Mr. Fanny Pack. An argument… Read more »

Happy Ibex Father’s Day!

Dear Dad, Boy, you really get the short end of the stick on this Father’s Day stuff. Mother’s Day may be drowning in cheap perfume and cheaper flowers, but there are trips, jewels and good food to balance out the saccharine flavor of the day.
