IFMC #7

Oct 02 2020


2020 has provided a lot of 'firsts' in my life, and one that I'm particularly proud of is a volunteer role within my community.

Looking for ways to give back to the recreational spaces and the communities that give us so much, Bradleigh and I served as land stewards this summer for the Stowe Land Trust.

We had a great time working to maintain trail corridor on a few sections of trail in Stowe, Vermont, and our last mission out on the trail had me wondering...

Now that I own and routinely wear a pair of rugged, Carhartt bibs, am I officially a Vermonter??
