Learning From Terminal Patients (Hint: Get to the beach more)

Learning From Terminal Patients (Hint: Get to the beach more)

February 02, 2018

We are now on week 3 of what I think I'll call the "Share The Wild" newsletter. You can read the first one about gratitude here. And last week we talked about improving fitness so we can enjoy the outdoors more. 

Last night I stumbled across a twitter thread written by Alastair McAlpine. He treats terminally ill kids. He asked his patients what they had enjoyed in life. I want to share some responses. 

First, NONE of them said they wished they viewed more TV, spent more time on social medai, or fighting/arguing with others. Not surprising. Yet how many hours a day do we spend on this stuff? 

MANY talked about their pets. (Who here has a furry hiking buddy?) MANY talked about their parents and hoping they wouldn't worry. 

MANY also spoke of their love for swimming and the beach. Not surprisingly, these wise kids also LOVED ice cream. Really what stood out to me most is that the things they enjoyed most were about connection and kindness. 

I think spending time outside with our friends and family can help us develop both. So, in honor of these kids who love the ocean/beach, here are some places to put on your list of travels soon.

In the spirit of connection and helping others, we recently partnered with Jess Grambau. Jess is an avid outdoor enthusiast and influencer on instagram. She helps people struggling with depression/anxiety/addiction in their recovery process through a hiking group called New Heights Hiking. So we designed a T-shirt in her honor. 100% of proceeds will help to fund her group. If you want a cool shirt and want to help out, click here. We did a little video profile of her and what she's up to. 

Lastly, I'd love to hear from you. Let me know what you think so far of the topics and content of this newsletter. Is there anything you'd like to see from me? Do you like it so far? Thanks for your support of our fledgling but growing brand. And remember to #sharethewild this weekend!

Moments, Movement, and Triumphs

September 11, 2018

One of my goals is to create a business that has a 2-way, long-term relationship with its customers. After all, those are the kinds of relationships I value in my personal life. What are we if not a bunch of grownup kids forced to work for a living :) So, I'm attempting to make this brand a way to create friendships and have fun experiences. To get to know you better, I asked you what made you feel alive or connected. I got a flood of responses back. It's about Movement, Moments, and Triumph.

I think this sunset wast he best I'd seen all summer. So was it genius or stupidity? I guess it was probably both! Right after we enjoyed this we had to make our way down on a night where there was no moon.
