The Rover
"The Rover is a versatile shoe built for mobility in the mountains when your run goes vertical." -Patagonia
Like many of you I got “Outside Magazine’s” Gear Guide this summer and read about the new minimalist approach shoe from Patagonia, and after reading the review I had to have them to add to my quiver of gear. I purchased them while on my hiking and climbing trip in the Grand Tetons so you could say they got a little trial-by-fire…
The short and sweet is… They work. They work for approaches with lighter loads (No 50lbs packs please), they work for trail runs (But be warned they are minimalist so you will feel every stone or root under foot), and they even work for a stroll in town.
My favorite part about these shoes is the rubber; on steep/slabby approaches they stuck like glue! The lugs are just aggressive enough to help find those tiny crystals and can find purchase on slick roots. –I still want to give them a run through a little impromptu fly-fishing just to see if they really qualify as my all-in-one shoe. These shoes are light; 8.8oz so take them on the approach and clip them to your harness for the walk-off.
My closing question is “When will Patagonia slap this rubber on some climbing shoes?”

Ode to the Bird Dog…
Two days ago my good friend, hunting partner, and all-around trouble-maker laid down at my stairs and never woke up. I adopted Lola from a professor’s friend whom could no longer work with such a ‘soft’ dog approximately 8 years ago and my life, and her’s where all the better for it. 
I suppose it didn’t really sink in until today when my fiance and I came home after a trail run and Lola wasn’t at the door to greet me. 
Well hunting buddy, you will be missed and nary a duck hunt will go by where I don’t miss you. 
Hats off and Scotch glass held up high. Here’s to you, the most loyal compatriot a guy could ever ask for.

Vídeo completamente louco, estes dois riders com o precipício mesmo ao lado, é caso para dizer, ao mínimo erro a morte do artista :)

One hundred years ago today, 21-year-old Edward ‘Ryko’ Reichenbach broke the record for the fastest person to cycle from Adelaide to Darwin, completing the journey in just 28 days.

Man, what an epic journey! Here is to your Hump Day and may you find yourself one day closer to your epic adventure!

Cheers,
