Start of Something New

Introduction:
The end of the 2013 year and the beginning of the 2014 year has got me thinking and motivated to create a blog revolving around gear from the outdoor industry. There are several blogs already out there that focus primarily towards Alpinisim,ski-mountaineering, or climbing, but not a single one that culminated all the outdoor activities I participated in. These activities range from hiking, backpacking, alpine and AT skiing, rock climbing, and mountaineering. I will confess that I am by no means an expert at any or all of them, or even that great at some, I just am passionate about the gear that enhances our experience in the outdoors.

About Me:
I am a student at the University of Washington in Seattle studying Materiel Science Engineering(MSE) while working at a climbing and back-country skiing shop in Bellevue, Washington. I'm studying MSE because I want to work in the outdoor industry and help innovate gear that enhances our experience in the outdoors. I hope to bring some of the knowledge that I learn from my studies and experience to you guys, if there are any readers of this blog..... My goal for this blog is to discuss current and future products in the outdoor industry and provide reviews for the equipment that I use.

  2. Love your reviews! I live in the Seattle area and try to hike often. REI is my favorite store and I'm constantly looking at new gear for fun. Do you do any reviews on tents? I'd be curious to know what you've used and recommend. Thanks for making the internet a more informative place!

    1. I have enough photos and trips to review the Big Agnes Slater UL 2+ or the Exped Andromedia 2 (which I think is no longer available) but I haven't got around to it yet. I really should.
