Another chapter comes to a close. It's been a great ride. Three years have flown by so fast. I have seen this place grow before my eyes, from opening this store to training this team and first snowboarding runs to backpacking trips. It has been awesome working with the fine people at the #reiprinceton but it is time for me to move on and work my magic at #reiparamus ! It is not goodbye, it's see you later. Thank you for making work not feel like work! ❤⛺🏂 🚲
When I started seeing people hashtag optoutside last year I was like what does that mean ? Choose outside ? Okay cool. I already always do. But then when I started working at REI this year I found out what it really is, is that they close their doors on Black Friday (the most profitable day of the year) and PAY all of their employees to go play outside instead of encouraging the madness of Black Friday! Which is pretty awesome and gave me the opportunity to get up to The Whites in New Hampshire which I love and get to hike this awesome 4800 fter called Mt Moosilauke which was my first time being in an alpine environment in the snow and it was amazing!
