Its Fifth Grade, on the After School basketball court: they used to call me the Bus Driver, because I could take you to School! It had nothing to do with being 5’2” / 180 pounds and wore Husky sizes + Big Dog




this deserves 1,000,000 RT’s / retumbles / shares.
modi! I had a band freshman year of high school called Channel Zero. I didn’t know we made merch! we played AC/DC at a school dance once. and for halloween sophomore year I broke my Telecaster by swinging it around my neck during a cover of Seven Nation Army. though no one saw into the open garage of the drummer’s house where we we made our stage that rainy Halloween night.

If I had the creative power - as well as the group of friends who wore egregious amounts of Patagonia clothing regularly - I am confident my caché of photographs from years past would compile a more-than-complete look book for Patagonia gear. Luckily, I have Wolfie. Chris Wolf E. Staudinger brought me out of the Patagonia Upper West Side shop for a week and flew me down to Mississippi a couple weeks ago, to film and capture the goings-on of a five day canoe paddle down the Lower Mississippi RIver. And he wears the Patagonia well. 

Below is a selected smattering of photographs from Clarksdale to Vicksburg, MS on our nation’s largest river, documenting the lives of some favorite Patagonia pieces as if they rode a wave of celebrity in a fall featurette or fashion look book.

Wolfie and I wearing what we call our “camping pants,” which are matching pairs of Capilene 3 bottoms. What’s fortuitous and special about this coincidence is the beautiful fact that we purchased these as preventative measure for the Boston cold in fall of 2007 - both of us transplants to college in New England. Nearly seven years later they show themselves as a subtle memory, time capsuled in snug, brown, synthetic long johns for canoeing, camping, and celebrating many years of friendship.
