I am from and currently live in the Pacific Northwest, in the small town of Carnation, WA. Over the last decade I have lived in Bend, OR, Erie, CO, and Chicago, IL. But I must say it is good to be home. I have a passion for the outdoors, whether it is hiking, climbing, golfing, cycling, running, or triathlons. With this passion I have a belief that there is no bad weather, just bad gear. To that end, I started this site to give an honest review of gear I have used on my adventures. Thanks for visiting!
