About Ricardo

“Having grown up in Michigan, I learned to love the outdoors at a very young age. Spending my time in the woods was one of my favorite ways to enjoy a day outside. Over time, this developed into hunting, fishing, camping, snowboarding, and just getting outside to do as much as possible, as often as possible.

 

In late 2016 I decided it was time for me to leave Michigan; time to pursue the outdoors elsewhere. I quit my job, packed a car with my essential belongings, and set out for a city in the Pacific Northwest (that I had never been to) with the confidence that I would be able to make everything work out in the end.

 

In the end it was a success and I’ve lived in the PNW for over a year now. I try to spend as many weekends as possible outdoors doing all sorts of things: hiking, backpacking, snowboarding, camping, etc. Recently, I’ve gained a strong interest in mountaineering and will be pursuing that much more in the coming months and years as I pursue more opportunities to allow me to get outside. I also plan to get into fly fishing and back into hunting now that I’ve settled in out here. Minus33 will be key in helping me stay comfortable, and warm when needed, during all of my outings.”

Favorite Minus33 Product: “Trailblazer Midweight Hoody, without a doubt. I wear it almost daily while warming up for training and also have it on me often when I’m out in the mountains. Very lightweight and form-fitting, but provides the perfect amount of warmth.”
