Gainesville, FL (PRWEB) September 13, 2009
When Peggy Hines founded http://www.Vellys.com, she wanted to commemorate the passing of her dear friend Carol Mulling, who loved the outdoors.
"It was a shock when Carol died, and for a long time, I didn't know what I could do to reconcile," said Hines. "Then I started thinking about how much Carol had loved the outdoors, and that's where I came up with the idea to create a nature website and contribute a portion of the profits to a scholarship in her honor."
Hines has made an effort to compile the best selection of nature oriented equipment, apparel and accessories, and has plans to continue expanding in the future.
"I want the website to be a complete resource for people who love the outdoors," said Hines. "I'm planning on adding more equipment for outdoor recreation in the near future, including kayaks and boating supplies."
In addition to a superior product selection, Hines has created a new blog at http://www.VellysBlog.com where she plans to discuss some of her favorite hiking, backpacking and nature viewing locations.
"I think one of the strongest memories I have of Carol was her desire to venture off the beaten path," said Hines. "Carol would avoid taking the interstate and travel on the back roads, and she would always find the greatest nature trails, which I'd like to share with others."
Hines also plans to use her knowledge of the outdoors to put together day-trips, which she will include on the blog.
"I'll be adding pre-planned day trips to the blog, with information on recommended supplies, and maps to the location," said Hines. "Day-trips are the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors, and there hundreds of great day-trip locations all over the country across every state."
Whether a nature lover or an amateur when it comes to the outdoors, Hines' website is the perfect place to start for all outdoor adventures, and support a great cause.
