When everything is starting to seems too familiar we decided to go and see a few people before we leave the US. We are reviewing all our gear and i’ll do a separate post on it but needless to say it involved a few familiar companies and maybe not familiar locations.
We headed out to Idaho to see Klim, left with some ‘new gear’
then it was across the state to see Lendon in his brand new Seat Concepts building, did you know SC makes about 2000 seats a month!!! No wonder they needed to expand to ID
Then to the smallest building of all, this one where a luggage empire is growing at an alarming rate, Mosko Moto
We are glad to call the companies and owners friends but its interesting how they all seem to have a similar story, small beginnings from a small workshop or a little garage to a worldwide name…so from Egle and I a big thank you doing what you do and keeping us safe, dry, comfortable and able to carry what we need with ease.
There must be some magic in the air between the 40th and 45th parallels of the northwest, it is surprising how many companies are in that area.
Then it was a very quick trip to the left coast for Egle to meet an associate editor and her husband for a short time in the Portland area, where we missed the DGR by about an hour so i only got scraps
at least the bike in the wall art seems right!
We have a bunch of stuff to do in AZ before we start speaking Spanish so it was a very quick ride south, taking in a few familiar sights, VoG and what referred to as ‘the ditch’ by helicopter pilots fro Vegas
