Kate and I have had wonderful gear support from a number of super companies that we want to thank. The companies that follow support our work in the outdoors, including 1) apps from our company MountainWorks Software and subsidiary High Country Apps about hunting, fishing, and flora identification; 2) books about backpacking, bike touring, yoga, and critter allegories; 3) science writing; facilitation in the realms of climate change, Yellowstone bison, native trout in Yellowstone Lake; and more.
Because they support our work, we want to extend our thanks to each of the companies below and support their work. Please consider each of these companies when you're looking for your own outdoor gear.
Great appreciation to Outdoor Research for their Pro Deal. OR's core values—certainly matching my own—include cultivating respect for each other and the planet, and growing through the challenge of journey.
Great appreciation to Ibex Clothing for their Pro Deal. Ibex is a progressive company that creates highly functional, great looking outdoor clothing made of wool, a phenomenal natural fiber.
