Well the outdoor retail show was awesome it really made me want to be more active and also get a job in the outdoor industry (wish me luck) this event also made me feel not so hard core! James and i were just strolling around and half the people there looked like professional athletes and there where also some people there who looked like they owned the companies! We first stumbled into a guy who had lost a leg in an animal attack and had a fake leg with climbing shoe on it he was hard core! then we go past a booth where i hear some guy say... "the north pole was way harder to navigate than the south" yeah that guy is wild hard core! we also ran into Apa Sherpa (who summited Everest 18 times) and Lhakpa Sherpa (who has the fastest ascent 10 hours 56 min) kinda hard core!
