Outdoor Retailer Day 1

Heather is out in Salt Lake City at the Outdoor Retailer trade show, looking for trends, brands and new products to bring back to The Pathfinder. After one short afternoon, she says the biggest trend she's seeing is POWER. How to power all of the rechargeable gear (headlamp, UV water purifier, GoPro camera) as well as your smart phone, while you're on the trail, traveling in central America, camping, or on a 3-day bike tour. She also tried so "great-tasting," all-natural gu with chai seeds (which, if you know Heather, is not something she would typically enjoy!). But she walked past the Christmas Sweaters booth... sorry! She'll report again tomorrow!
