Adventure Kit - In Search Of The Northern Lights

Our buddy Andrew is someone we admire on many levels. The thing that strikes us most though is his sense of adventure and ability to just get up and go. The man works his tail off all week but has the innate ability to sneak away damn near every single weekend.

He gave us a shout a couple weeks back and said, 'hey fellas, my buddy Justin and I are headed to Alaska to check out the Northern Lights, maybe drive to the Arctic Circle, rent some snowmobiles, we'll see.' Just a quick extra long weekend adventure to the north country for this guy, temps, a high of 3 degrees. No problem at all. To add insult to all of our communal injury, this is the last of 50 states that Andrew has yet to visit and the man has barely struck into his late 20s.

We had Andrew swing by the office and share a few of the things he'll be taking with him on his trip. Here's some of what he's taking with him:

Taylor Stitch Granite Yosemite Shirt

Danner Mountain Light Hiking Boot

Goodhew Durango Merino Hiking Socks

Tanner Goods Beanie

Sun Pocket Folding Sunglasses

Snow Peak Titanium Mug

Stanley Flask (It's gonna be cold, whiskey will be a necessity)

Helle Eggen Knife
