I have always had a jubilant fondness for the outdoors and the sports that go along with it. It rolls, floats or has a vertical face you can count me in. I may not particularly excel at any one of my many hobbies but a strong will and a lot of determination combined with the pure love of the sport suits me just fine. I hail from the East coast but have been slowly making my way West my entire life. I now call South Lake Tahoe my home and have been a gear guru at Outdoorgearlab for the past 4 years and couldn't imagine my life any differently. One piece of advice that I try to live by is, turn your setbacks into comebacks.
