A Good Life...

I’m often asked, why did I give up my corporate job to start Trailhead Supply, with my youngest daughter Sydney? It’s simple, it wasn’t fun!!! I’d work all week just to fly home load up the mules and head off to the middle of nowhere. In today’s language I needed to unplug. I began thinking about that every chance I got If I needed to unplug every weekend, then something was wrong in my life, it wasn’t my passion, my love, my dream of what I wanted to do.  You know what I’m talking about?  It’s rare that you get to get all excited and tell folks about what you do.  It is even more exciting to have people show up at clinics and seminars where you can teach them about your passion.  Mine is packing! And to share that is one of the greatest rewards one can ever receive. Here at Trailhead Supply we are so lucky to be able to share our knowledge of the back country and have people put their trust in our handmade packing equipment…we don’t have the words, other than Thank You!! We try and encourage folks to get out there and make some memories, life is too short, enjoy it to the fullest!!!  Small things become huge things, miles from nowhere…Last Saturday night I shared some damn good whisky with two of my closest friends while sitting under a fir tree in a rain storm. As I sipped that whisky out of my Trailhead Supply coffee cup, I thought to myself life can’t get much better than this…Well when I got home a couple days later, I was sent a video from  some customers who have become friends over the years and this 4 minutes, made me smile…because this is what I teach in all my packing classes. It is supposed to be fun…At times all of us that do this packing thing for a living or build the equipment needed to make everything go up and down the trail…well we need a reminder…It is supposed to be fun. Sit back, relax, enjoy a beverage in that Trailhead Supply coffee cup, and have fun watching folks enjoy the back country as we all should………Thanks Mike, Amanda, and David…Loved every second of your journey.

See you on the trail!
