This is the latest from our man on the road, Luke Evans, as he spreads the good word about PROBAR® while traveling the continent. He’s reporting from Seattle, Washington.
I arrived at the Beautiful Blue Sky RV Park to find that an RV parked in the spot next to where we were supposed to park had BLOWN-UP!
Seriously, the park manager said it was all caused by a Pop-Tart in the toaster. I am very glad that my schedule didn’t permit me being here for that as the PROBAR® RV would have certainly caught fire!
It has been an exciting couple of weeks to say the least. Jason and I were fortunate enough to take a tour through the Starbucks Corporate Headquarters and do a Coffee/Tea tasting. They were very hospitable and it was interesting to hear their history as a company that has grown to where it is now……they’re everywhere!
Art and I did several events for REI (Recreation Equipment Inc) including a sampling at the Distribution Center and Corporate Headquarters. It was great to meet the peeps who make the REI gears turn and talk to them about PROBAR®.
My escape from the RV park this past weekend brought me to the small Bavarian town of Leavenworth. I had heard about this place from my friend Jeremy Park who works for Outdoor Research.He was traveling there with some friends so I lucked out in having a guide for all things bouldering and also some of the great food spots in town. (Including the Munchen “Bratwurst” Haus that actually had a delicious Vegan Brat).
We had an awesome time exploring the different bouldering areas and wearing down our fingertips until we couldn’t climb anymore. I will definitely be going back to Leavenworth to finish up some projects.
Next time I go, my partner in climb and soon to be wife (Amanda) will be with me…..can’t wait!
