Outside Timberland: Depending on the season, the weather and where I am at any given time when I'm not at work, I ride the snow on telemark skis, ride the roads on my bicycle, ride the ocean in my self-built wooden kayak and trek the not so beaten paths of the outdoors on my own two feet.
My favorite thing to do in the outdoors: It's the many places around the world that I've not only had the opportunity to explore but -while there, had the clearness of mind to stop, look around and take in the beauty and moment for what it was and what it is - a miracle of nature and a privilege of experience.
My favorite Timberland product: Two brands I never leave behind when I trek around the outdoors are Timberland and SmartWool. I love my new Timberland Translite Low w/ Gore-Tex® membrane and my faithful SmartWool NTS base layers and hiking socks.
