Jack from Okinawa

Hey, everyone! Jack here -- "Sweet Tater" is my nickname. I currently live in Okinawa, Japan, 600km from the Japanese mainland and bathed by the East China Sea. I'm originally from Mobile, Alabama.

I love everything about the outdoors, and participate in a ton of different activities like kayaking, fishing, hiking, bouldering, cycling, snorkeling, name it, I love it!

@Sweet-Tater any chance you'll tell us more about the nickname...?!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

Just an old nickname from college...we had a friend who used the term "sweet tater" whenever he was excited about something...sort of the equivalent of "yahoo!". I used to mimic him as a joke, and the name stuck.
