Immediately after getting dropped off at the McDonald's in Steamboat Springs, CO, I ran into a dude from Point6 cycling to work. He was able to recognize hiker trash of the CDT kind and extended me an invite to the company's office. I happily accepted.
As I was browsing the selection of socks showcased in Point6's office, Mr. Socks dude went to the secret vault, came back, and slapped some socks on the table. My heart began to race. My eyes went full Smeagol. I started drooling. In front of me were Point6's latest ultralight wool socks! Not even on the market yet. And check out dem colors!! I had to have. Mr. Socks offered that I take them on a test drive. Absolutely!
Thank you so much, Point6, for your support on the CDT and also the GDT!!
If you haven't heard of Point6, it's a CO-based company that makes merino wool socks with a lifetime warranty. The company was created by the same people who founded SmartWool. Also, some big name ambassadors represent the company such as Heather "Anish" Anderson and The Real Hiking Viking.
