GORE Labs2Woods Blogger Summit – Day 1

Recently, I was invited by W.L. GORE & Associates to visit their headquarters to attend their first GORE Labs2Woods Blogger Summit. They had an action packed few days for us! I toured the GORE facilities, talked with their engineers, and got to personally test some gear! I even got a 20 minute stint in the Rain Room.

While making the drive north, I couldn’t help from getting stoked about this opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at the GORE Compound and share it will all of you.

The GORE Labs2Woods Blogger Summit was a short and intense deluge of education, entertainment, and laughter with fourteen other outdoor writers and GORE associates. I met with some of my fellow outdoor writers such as Katie Seacat of Seacat Creative,  Marc of NYBowhunter, Rick of 24hourcampfire, Tracy Breen, Fredy of Ammoland just to name a few! Also met with Mark Seacat of Outdoor Life’s Live Hunt, Jeff Simpson of Fence Post Media Group and Colonel Tim O’Neill, a.k.a. the Father of Digital Camouflage.

I did not personally set any expectations, so I could remain open minded and ready to absorb as much as I could. [Read more…]

As an outdoor gear geek, I’m really stoked about this opportunity to get a behind the scenes at the GORE Labs and share it will all of you.  I will try to pictures and or video daily here on the blog daily, but will have to see if time permits.
