Each trip takes on it's own characters and it's been fantastic to reconnect with myself alone as well as with all the incredible people I've met along the way. Last weekend I drove up to Moab Utah for a few days of glamping at Under Canvas, doing a photoshoot along the way and in various spots throughout the city.
I fell in love with the red hills and the people we met, so I was really excited to hear about the Worn Wear road trip tour Patagonia just embarked on, starting last week in Ventura, CA and moving throughout the country all the way to NYC, with a stop in Moab on Saturday and Sunday April 18th and 19th. Patagonia's vibe is so much in tune with my own; their love of adventure, the open road, and a respect for the environment which they incorporate at every turn.
When I was I high school in the late '80s I started a recycling club, which still functions to this day, and have always supported the recycling ethos: reduce, reuse, recycle. A day after Governor Brown of California announced the new water restrictions for the state I think it's timely to note anyone anywhere who is already doing their part to lighten the load we place on our natural resources on a daily basis. The Worn Wear Wagon, created by artist/surfer Jay Nelson, encourages people to fix their clothes rather than replace them at the drop of a trendy hat. Check out the full tour schedule here and visit the staff from Patagonia's repair facility who will be traveling in the truck for the next few months, and they will fix up whatever treasures your closet holds, no matter what the brand, no matter how used, all amidst food, drinks and live music. I am jealous, I so want to go back out on the road with them.
