@DaleKNapinski wow. First and foremost, we are so relieved to hear that Mike not only survived such a harrowing event, but is also on the mend. In addition, we are incredibly humbled that you thought to share this note with us, in the midst of all you have going on - thank you. We wish Mike a speedy and thorough recovery, so he can get back to his volunteer work (and also his regular hikes in and around the beautiful Puget Sound).

At REI, we believe a life outdoors is a life well lived.
