Our Outdoor Idaho ‘Bucket List’…101 Things to Do in Idaho. With so many adventure options in this state, our list just barely scratches the surface. But here’s hoping it gives you some ideas for the summer. And let us know some of your suggestions for the list. http://idahoptv.org/outdoors/shows/adventureIdaho/bucketlist/

If you're going to be climbing Mt. Borah in the next couple of weeks... and if you're willing to carry a small camera and shoot some video of Chicken Out Ridge, contact us. Our October show is called "Summit Idaho" and we need a little footage of Borah. (The main segments in the show will feature He-Devil, Scotchman, Gilmore, and Vienna Peak.) Thanks, Bruce. (This photo, of Chicken Out Ridge, is from Alice Marie Schenk.)

If you're in the neighborhood tomorrow, Thursday, drop by for a special screening of Outdoor Idaho's "A Sawtooth Celebration" at the Community Library in Ketchum at 6 p.m. It's sponsored by the Sawtooth Society and +Idaho Public Television.

Welcome to “Rec Tech,” the third show of our 30th season (following “Climbing Idaho” and “A Sawtooth Celebration”). Tonight’s show focuses on Idaho’s growing recreational technology industry, and the adventurous men and women behind some of those rec tech innovations. (Oh, and the judges have begun sending in their photo favorites. We’ll post the January ‘Iconic Idaho’ photo winners Friday morning.)

We are down to the final minutes of our hour-long special... A Sawtooth Celebration... airing this Sunday at 7 p.m. Director Pat Metzler and I will be putting in some hours this evening, looking for shots and sharpening the text. Always too much to cover and never enough time. If you haven't seen the tease, here it is. Bruce

I have seen the teaser before, and it still sends chills through me. Great work, Bruce and Pat. I'm very excited.

"Summit Idaho" opens OUTDOOR IDAHO's 31st season tonight at 8:00 p.m. MT/PT. Check out Sauni Symonds' blog post on what was required behind the scenes to put the show together. Then watch the show and join four groups of people, each intent on reaching the top of one of four Idaho peaks. At the top, each peak offers a unique in-the-round view — and sometimes mountain goats. http://idahoptv.org/outdoors/oi_stories.cfm

"Idaho Geology" wins regional Emmy in Science category.

On Saturday night, June 15, in Seattle, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, Northwest Chapter, honored Outdoor Idaho: Idaho Geology, A Convergence of Wonders, an Emmy in the Science/Health Program category. We are proud of this program because it benefited from practically our entire production team including Bruce Reichert, Pat Metzler, Jay Krajic, Hank Nystrom, Jeff Tucker, John Crancer, Sauni Symonds, Marcia Franklin, Aaron Kunz, Joan Cartan-Hansen, Ricardo Ochoa, Dave Butler and Chuck Cathcart. In addition, geologist guides Bill Bonnichsen and Marty Godchaux, and all the recreation adventurers, helped us tell the amazing geological story of Idaho.

Congratulations to our very talented team!

C.J. Buck of Buck Knives says the four-generation company that manufactures and designs hunting knives is doing well since its move to Post Falls, Idaho, from California in 2005. “We’re right off the freeway, we’re 20 minutes from an airport and we’re 15 minutes from elk hunting. Tell me where else you’re going to find that little combo pack.”

Buck and the company are part of the “Rec Tech” episode that premieres Thursday (January 31) at 8:00 p.m. MT/PT on Idaho Public Television and repeats Sunday (February 3) at 7:00 p.m. MT/PT.

Moving to Idaho was a homecoming of sorts for the company, because in addition to family hunting and camping trips to the Gem State, Buck’s great-grandfather, a blacksmith, preacher and logger, once made knives for his friends while at a church in Mountain Home. “Moving to Idaho for me was like living in your vacation land,” he said.

+Idaho Public Television  producer Greg Hahn said it was the gift of an innovative trout reel made in Boise that started him on a statewide odyssey to find other “Rec Tech” innovators.

In Boise, a machinist who has worked on several innovative outdoor products joined with other enthusiasts to start a company to make mountain bike and BMX products. In Lewiston, OUTDOOR IDAHO cameras capture a jet boat maker, whose vessels are shipped throughout the world as well as found plying Idaho waters. In the shadow of the Tetons, a new energy bar emerges. The episode also tells the stories of the beginnings of bicycle and ski equipment breakthroughs that came from a company founded in Sun Valley.

“We couldn’t come close to fitting all the good stories into our show on Idaho’s ‘Rec Tech,’ but I hope it gives a taste of the variety of companies out there,” Hahn says. “I know it includes some amazing people — adventurers, risk-takers, inventors, entrepreneurs. Folks young and old who share one major characteristic: They love to be outside in Idaho.”

Darrell Bentz, Lewiston, fell under the spell of jetboats when he traveled in one as a firefighter for the Forest Service at age 18. “I was totally fascinated by the whole thing,” he says.

Bentz and his company, Bentz Boats, are part of the “Rec Tech” episode that premieres Thursday (January 31) at 8:00 p.m. MT/PT on Idaho Public Television and repeats Sunday (February 3) at 7:00 p.m. MT/PT.

“An obsession? Yeah, yeah. Those boats have got to be able to turn and handle in rocky technical water and they’ve got to be able to go where you want them to go day after day … so I’ve basically spent a lifetime trying to figure out how to do that.”
