Outdoor Gear Guy:
If you hike or climb or paddle or ride, you’ve probably met him. He wears $80 Prana shorts. And $70 Gramici T-Shirts. His Chaco sandals are very clean. His hair and goatee are perfect.
Outdoor Gear Guy hangs out at REI and sips lattes at locally owned coffee shops. He frequents the climbing gym to chat with friends. Swills micro-brews only.
But it’s his garage that matters. In there we find his treasure stored:
1 pristine Serotta Ottrott road bike.
32 glittering Metolius Master Cams
2 orange Maravia 14-footers
4 Northface 2200+ packs
3 Kevlar SEDA Sea Kayaks
2 Dagger Green Boats
1 Lynskey Titanium Cross Bike
All fine. Good gear. Excellent in fact.
But if you ask him to climb, he’s always busy.
He also never rides. Or paddles. Or backpacks.
But man does his gear look good. In his garage.
End of rant.
