Raison d'etre

This site is dedicated to Patagonia and its founder Yvon Chouinard.
First disclaimer -- although i'm a huge believer in their mission statement, their vision and their clothing & gear, i am not employed by Patagonia, Inc.

Second disclaimer -- i'm not an expert climber, skier, surfer, trail runner, swimmer, fisher or paddler...but i love getting out there.

Woulda Shoulda Patagonia!
i've hiked around Yosemite and other parts of the Sierra Nevadas, the Tetons, Adirondacks, the Wasatch...and alas, i've climbed the ubiquitous rock wall. i've body surfed the waves of Santa Cruz as well as parts of Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean. i've biked the rolling hills of Vermont in autumn; paddled the Snake, Virgin and other rivers, fished all over California and Wyoming, skied Utah (enough said) and all kinds of other adventures.

This blog's reason for being -- i have passion and respect for the connection between people and the wild & beautiful places of this planet. i know there are many who share this passion. Bring it on!
Send your pics and stories as you ski, surf, climb, run, swim, work, play, save the planet or whatever it is you do in Patagonia.
a bientot.
