Show Notes

First Exposure to the Outdoors

The outdoors for me, you know, we were just talking about our fathers and my dad who's 93, has been one of the big pieces of inspiration for me from an outdoor perspective my entire life. And I think the outdoors is something for all of us, a little bit different. Living here in Colorado and growing up in Colorado, the outside world was very vast and broad from being outdoors and fishing and skiing and biking, all the things we did as a kid.

The outdoors for some people are parks and I think in the urban parks I think outdoors is a perspective and a frame of mind. Hopefully, people can enjoy being outside. And no matter what it is, it doesn't have to be an extreme sport or fly fishing or whatever. But just being outside and appreciating nature puts everybody in a good space, physically and mentally, which is really important.
