Death Valley was the first stop on our road trip with Backcountry Gearheads, their customers, and friends to find those golden moments in the outdoors. Here we hiked, ran, laughed, ate well, and did flips off the top of sand dunes. More importantly, though, we got to know the people we were traveling with. Meet Rachel - Backcountry Customer:

William Woodward and Mandy Marr just spent four days on a boat in Indonesia, and they are loving being back on shore, even if it's just long enough to take a little sunset dip. They also rated that their boat would make it back to their destination with a 50/50 chance. In case you were wondering how it ended, it didn't make it.

Are you starting to plan a road trip? Here's a tip from Gearhead Ben Rabinowitz: give yourself enough time to relax. Too often the itinerary is crammed because you want to experience all these different places. Having down time is important, it lets the trip evolve naturally.

We took a couple Gearheads, a Backcountry ambassador, two of you—our customers—and a film crew, loaded their truck with gear, and put them on the road. Their destination was California, and their goal was to find gold—gold in the form of the awe-inspiring new experiences that happen outside, and we found it: [ Link ]
Antelope Island State Park is a unique and beautiful place located right in our backyard within the Great Salt Lake. When Columbia Sportswear and their Directors of Toughness came to town, our Gearheads knew exactly where they wanted to take them trail running. We can't wait for next time!
