    Yes, admittedly I AM a gear junkie. That’s the first step, admission. I must join gear junkie anonymous. Yes, as I am sitting around the campfire all nice and cozy with fellow junkies I must apologize for always trying to outdo them buy buying more and the best of the best. I am never satisfied, always looking for new gear. Sure, I have more stoves than anyone could ever use. Way too many back packs, sleeping bags, tents. Hell with the exception of the apparel I could outfit an expedition! But I love it. I just want to stay outside, away from home with all my gear, Traversing the mountain sides. Photographing nature in all its beauty…. Then I wake up and realize I must go off to work so I can pay for all this stuff. That’s why I hate work. It keeps me away from the things I love. Oh well.
    Whatcha got new to show me?

    I am probably a cross between a weekend warrior and a homebody: I live for fresh air, love natural everything, from food to fabrics. I love being able to walk anywhere with just a good pair of shoes or boots, but I especially love walking with my dog on a trail close to home for at least an hour. It’s nice to be close to home (or a nice hotel!) because I do enjoy the creature comforts in life such as a cozy down comforter on a cold day or a nourishing meal, maybe curled up on a comfy sofa watching a favourite t.v. show or film.
    I also love horses-everything about them, from hanging around a barn to riding for hours. There’s always lots to do, and even more to do afterwards like cleaning up and endless people and horse laundry. But it’s always nice to come home at the end of the day, especially in the long, cold months of winter.

    Is it possible that somehow I am all of the above? Is it possible that every situation your products are made for applies to me? I ponder this daily. As I sit on the front porch of my cabin, I relax and think about what kind of outdoor person I am, and find myself in one of your Classic Ragg wool sweaters. Then, when I am out in the grueling wilderness exploring and gathering fruits and nuts, I find myself in one of your weather proof parkas and wonder if it is even possible to categorize an affinity for LL Bean products such as this. Even if it is from but one mind of mine, thank you for everything you’ve done and made available to the world. I’m sure God will thank you when you reach those pearly gates.
