Team Exped hits the water once again

Trade show time is perhaps the very busiest time of the year for an outdoor company. In Exped's case, this means some of us are doubly busy - a show in Germany and right after that another one in Salt Lake City. Heidi, Hubi, and Andy were the ones to work that back-to-back schedule and we figured they deserved a bit of NW hospitality as reward, which to us means going paddling. So we grabbed our families, loaded up the boats and headed off to Saddlebag Island in the greater San Juan Islands.

Wildlife visits, Dutch oven cooking, grilling, island hiking, fishing, laughing, and good long sleeps combined for yet another memorable company outing. We also found time for some business meetings in the sunshine and, of course, much talk about gear - current and future.

As always, we encourage everyone to get out in the wilderness and find adventure. What better way than to encrouage by example!
