Zebu­lon Decides to Split: Did you know? On Octo­ber 14th (that’s today!), 1806, Cap­tain Zebu­lon Pike made the fate­ful deci­sion to split his crew of 20 sol­diers into two sep­a­rate detach­ments to fur­ther explore the Great Plains and inte­ri­or of Amer­i­ca. One detach­ment head­ed down the Arkansas Riv­er from Col­orado, and safe­ly returned to St. Louis. Zebu­lon, then 27 years old, led the oth­er crew west, up the Arkansas Riv­er, to explore the inte­ri­or. After four months, Zebulon’s par­ty was cap­tured by Span­ish sol­diers and impris­oned for years, where they like­ly thought back to this day when they part­ed ways and thought aloud, “Damn you Zebulon!”

Birth of the Great­est Moun­taineer: Did you know?

On Sep­tem­ber 17th, (that’s today!), 1944, the great­est climber in his­to­ry, Rein­hold Mess­ner, was born. He is con­sid­ered the best for his aston­ish­ing solo ascent up a new route on Mt. Ever­est in 1980 dur­ing the mon­soon sea­son with­out using sup­ple­men­tal oxy­gen. He is rumored to scram­ble ahead of Sher­pas and wait for them while he smokes a high-ele­va­tion cig­a­rette, and he is also the first per­son to suc­cess­ful­ly sum­mit all four­teen eight-thou­sand meter peaks, but it’s not just sum­mit­ing peaks that has led to his larg­er than life rep­u­ta­tion. He has also crossed Antarc­ti­ca on skis, the Gobi desert on foot, held polit­i­cal office, and decid­ed to pur­sue moun­taineer­ing more than rock climb­ing after he had 6 toes ampu­tat­ed due to frost­bite in his suc­cess­ful, yet trag­ic climb of the Rupal Face that killed his broth­er, Gun­ther. In the down­time between his dar­ing ascents of the world’s most dan­ger­ous peaks, Mess­ner has writ­ten 63 books.

Bill­abong Snow: Bill­abong began in the waves of Australia’s Gold Coast in 1973 and has become the mar­quee name in surf­ing.

Now they’ve opened the slopes, and with Bill­abong out­er­wear you can prac­tice your cutback’s all win­ter long.

Lib Tech­nolo­gies: What began in an old race­horse barn has turned into an indus­try leader in snow­board design. Lib Tech has depart­ed from tra­di­tion­al snow­board shapes by revers­ing the cam­ber geom­e­try with­in the board. The result: they’ve won eight awards since intro­duc­ing the Banana Tech­nol­o­gy in 2007, includ­ing the “Best of Test Award” from Snow­board Mag­a­zine in 2009.  

 

RED Hel­mets: Bob­ble­heads belong on the dash of a Chevy El Camino or on your co-work­er’s desk, not cruis­ing moun­tain slopes.

You’ll see their rid­ers, Shaun White, Ter­je Haakon­sen, and Jere­my Jones rock­ing these tech-savvy dome-pieces whether they’re doing dou­ble Mac Twist 1260’s in the pipe or bomb­ing pil­low lines in the backcountry.

Swim­ming With the Sharks: Did you know?

On August 22 (that’s today!), 1979, Diana Nyad com­plet­ed a 102-mile open ocean swim from North Bimi­ni Island, Bahamas to Juno Beach, Flori­da. In the Gulf Stream that is teem­ing with sharks, Nyad swam with­out a pro­tec­tive shark cage. She was nev­er attacked by sharks, but did get into a tan­gle with a Box Jel­ly­fish. Pow­er­ing past it, she aver­aged 3.7 miles-per-hour and com­plet­ed the swim in a lit­tle over a day. Nyad’s feat set both the men’s and women’s world record for dis­tance swim­ming with­out a wet­suit. Her record still stands today, but hope­ful­ly not for long. Nyad, age 62, is plan­ning a 103-mile Cuba to Flori­da swim in 2012.

In oth­er news…

Moun­tain Hop: Did you know? Like all things curi­ous and awe­some, the Brooks-Range rab­bit logo was inspired by a chance encounter with a stranger from the East. The sto­ry behind it goes a lit­tle some­thing like this: Founder Matt Brooks was climb­ing along­side a Russ­ian, look­ing to make con­ver­sa­tion, when he noticed his moun­tain com­pa­tri­ot was wear­ing a rab­bit pin. Either out of con­fu­sion or as a token of friend­ship, the Russ­ian climber end­ed up giv­ing him the pin. Lat­er, back at the office, the Brooks-Range team decid­ed to fea­ture the pin on some prod­uct as a lark. The inside joke turned into a mar­ket­ing win how­ev­er, as cus­tomers became attached, some going so far as to call in and express their con­cerns over rumors that the com­pa­ny might pull it. The folks at Brooks-Range laughed and shrugged their shoul­ders and the rab­bit became the new face of the com­pa­ny. That a funky trin­ket that passed hands on a moun­tain could come to rep­re­sent a major com­pa­ny by hap­pen­stance is just anoth­er rea­son why the out­door indus­try is awesome.
