Minus 33 Merino wool clothing, wool saved my life: Part II

Wool Saved My Life

It was a morning like any other.

 

Just your typical Upstate New York polar vortex bringing the air temperature somewhere well below zero. It was however, a gorgeous day with blue skies and green pines and there was fresh snow on the ground. I decided to go for a jaunt on cross country skis through our family’s backwoods out to the lake for some crisp air and exercise. Because it was so cold, I layered up. I put on some Wool Knee Socks with long underwear and topped with a wool sweater, jacket and cap to keep me cozy as I began to traverse the woodland trail.

The Adirondacks to the Andes

January 2017 was a month of adventure.

 

I started the New Year snowboarding with friends at Whiteface Mountain in Lake Placid, NY. Temperatures hovered around 0 degrees Fahrenheit at the summit of the mountain.  Visibility was poor at times but it was still some amazing riding. After 4 days in the Adirondacks, I made my way down to Eastern PA to meet my girlfriend and fly out of Philly to volunteer in Ecuador.  Our nine hour layover in Atlanta gave us enough time to leave the airport and explore what the city had to offer.
