Outdoor Retailer 2011

Posted by on Jan 25, 2011 in Uncategorized | 6 Comments

I went to the Outdoor Retailer trade show in Salt Lake City. And I saw a lot of gear. Including: Touring skis. Skate skis. Wool. A lot of wool. And alpacas. No. Really. Touring boots. More skis.

Perhaps it ought to clue me on something obvious that so much of the gear I own are things that I hope to never have to use: avalanche beacon, shovel and probe, A SPOT messenger with 911 capabilities, an avalung, and the handgun hidden away in my bedroom closet. Not to mention bike and ski […]

Over the last several months I have been writing, intermittently, an ongoing essay.
