Thanks For Opting Outside - $5000 To Paradox Sports

We're ecstatic to report that nearly 1,000 people chose to #OptOutside with us in support of Paradox Sports this Black Friday! That means we hit our donation cap and will be sending them the full $5,000 check to help increase climbing access in the disabled community. Thanks to REI for their awesome campaign and the millions who went out with them. But special thanks to you, the intrepid adventurers who got out and followed through in support of adaptive climbing.

As another way of saying thank you, we also wanted to highlight a few of our favorite Instagram photos from among the posts we counted towards the Paradox Sports donation. We hope you dig them!

 

 

All sales are final! #optoutside

I'm not saying I could do it, but I like to imagine living in a time before cell phones, Facebook and Black Fridays. . . . #optoutside #outdoorresearch #makeadogsday #neverstopexploring #formomentslikethis #rei1440project #blackhills #southdakota #hifromsd #blackhillsbadlands #discoverblackhills #badlands #badlandsnationalpark #explore #adventure #hike #dog #blackhillsadventureseries #nikon #luckyenough #jessebrownnelsonphotography

Thanksgiving dinner yesterday was fantastic. Food is always good but family is what makes the dinner. Here is one of my favorite meals from this past year. Potatoes, bacon, onions, and chives on the middle fork of the salmon river with @boise_ken and @ma1ba4. #camping #backpacking #dinner #family #optoutside #outdoorresearch #backcountry #thankful #middlefork #frankchurch #riverofnoreturn #fishing #flyfishing
