What We're Thankful for at Minus33

Happy Thanksgiving from the Minus33 team!

Every year we share a few things we're thankful for - friends and family, outdoor recreation, wool, and of course YOU, our customers!

This year we wanted to get a little more personal to see what our staff members have in common and get them reflecting on spending time with their families ahead of the holiday, so we asked them to answer the following two questions:
What is your favorite dish at Thanksgiving dinner?
What are you most thankful for this year?
These were their answers!
