Pyrrhic Paintball derives its name from an ancient Greek dance, one whose motions were intended to mimic the death struggle of two knife fighters. Like those dancers, the players on this dusty, urban-warfare field play-act modern battles, ducking out from behind particle-board barricades to get a bead on the opponents. But there's a second, better-known meaning to pyrrhic: victory achieved at great cost. Whether attempting to capture a flag, protect a VIP, or defend a base, anyone may be called to sacrifice themselves to a splattering of paint in order to ensure the completion of a team's objective.
As an offshoot of Sierra Trading Post, Derailed.com holds fast to the same business model as its parent company: bargaining with top brands to procure overstocks at heavily discounted prices. But like a youngest sibling taking up juggling cats, it strives to differentiate itself from its older counterparts. It stands out with a youthful vibe thanks to skate, surf, and SUP apparel and the staff's laid-back attitude. They'll happily answer questions and make recommendations on their throngs of camping gear, running shoes, collegiate attire, and bicycle accessories from brands including Hurely, Billabong, and Teva. Though their merchandise boasts an average discount of 48% off the retail value, shoppers can save even more—customers receive a $10 coupon when they sign up for emails, and clients of the Give & Go Referral program get a $20 egiftcard when the friend they referred uses their own $10 email coupon.

On a typical day across the grounds of Terrace Lakes Resort, guests are often hiking, mountain biking, four-wheeling through the pine-lined trails of Boise National Forest, relaxing in a geothermal hot-water pool, or watching the sun descend behind the mountains with a refreshing drink in their hands. Guests staying overnight in the resort’s cabins enjoy unrivaled access to the Idaho backcountry and enjoy nature however they see fit, from whitewater rafting to fishing to challenging a squirrel to a tennis match. In addition, Terrace Lakes Resort blankets the alpine setting with a 5,928-yard golf course that challenges golfers of all stripes. The par 72 layout eases players into the round with a relatively open, slightly longer front nine characterized by dramatically sloped greens. The second act's winding circuit of narrow, tree-lined fairways requires golfers to exercise more precise play than having to retrieve their ball from the Operation patient. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 5,928 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 69.2 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 128 from the farthest tees * Three tee options * Scorecard
