“I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful product. I purchased 2 Chocorua Midweight shirts for a weeklong hiking trip across Iceland’s Laugavegur and Fimmvörðuháls trails. The shirts kept me completely comfortable through the constantly changing temperatures and intense wind/rain storms. I even wear them casually when I work and go out for the evening.
Your Merino Wool Ridge Cuff Beanie also accompanied me on the hike and worked wonderfully. Iceland’s temperature in mid-September ranged between 25F and 55F and the beanie kept me warm while sleeping through the freezing nights.”
I grew up in Houston, Texas, and anyone who has ever been there knows, that saying there are limited outdoors opportunities is an understatement. But being born in Colorado, and living the first few years of my life here, I guess I have the mountains in my blood. After making a return to the colorful state, I decided to try to make up for lost time.
In the winters you can find me skiing in the Vail area, and storing away funds for my summer adventures. Which include my most recent traverse across the Great Himalayan Trail’s High Route, that took me from the Eastern to Western borders of Nepal. As well as last summers trip from Colorado to Alaska, where I went 4700 miles from Steamboat Spring to Prudhoe Bay, by hiking, biking, and paddling. Not to forget my first adventure, which I consider my entry into the outdoors, a raft guide on the Arkansas River.
I am always looking for the next big adventure, the next great test out in the wilderness that I can challenge myself with.
