Lundy's Log (and so it begins) October 04, 2014 00:00
Nature, a great place to be and a wonderful thing to enjoy. As a boy I was taught to appreciate the gift that gives us so much. To respect her, and she will always provide. From mountain ranges to great depths in the ocean, life is being supported. I remember going to the mountains and looking out over the valleys, simply astonishing. Creeks starting as a trickle, growing into beautiful streams and ending up as powerful rivers. Seeing all that grows along its path. Watching the cycle of life, uninterrupted by man.
Noticing that it doesnt stay uninterrupted by us got me wanting to do something for this beautiful ball of dirt we live on. Starting local, the decision was made that something needs to change. Litter is everywhere, our trash output is tremendous. By taking a small bag or container with you when you go out to put litter in, we've found is the simplest way to start. We call that "pack one out". Always leaving a place cleaner than we found it.
Feeling positive about being a good influence to further the idea, Terrapin Outfitters was born. A place where focus is on the healthy longevity of nature and getting folks to get out and enjoy its wonders. The Mascot used to do this is "Lundy". We call him "Nature's Gaurdian". The terrapin was used as they've stood the test of time. And according to the childhood tortoise and the hare story, he's wise and has determination as well. He is here to guide and encourage you on the way to being safe and experience more joy while out adventuring, along with introducing you to low impact gear that will help you enjoy nature a little safer and less stressful on the earth. VibeWithNature is our mantra, doing what we can to make a positive difference. Lundy believes also living by the phrase "text less" that this can be accomplished. His favorite one is "text less, roam more".
