Connecting you to opportunities to explore.
One thing we love so much about our storefront being in Thomasville, Georgia is that we have easy access to a bounty of adventure opportunities in a few hours radius. Hop in the car, and you can be enjoying the foothills of the Appalachian Trail in 4 hours or the coastal waterways of Florida in 3 hours. Our mission is to equip the modern day explorer - and we can do that all day every day - but gear that sits in your house is useless. We want to inspire curiosity, encourage you to go and explore the wild places. That's why we've put together this page, full of resources to help you find places to explore.

If you enjoy hiking to waterfalls, check out their blog to see the rating for the ease of hike, crowd size, views, etc.
