Episode Info: Welcome to another episode of the podcast It has been a while since I have recorded an episode and that is because there are a ton of things going on around here. Probably too many. Some of you know that we have been working on a few side projects but the we is now me as the other 2 people involved have very different ideas on what they wanted to do and both have chosen to leave to pursue other ideas. Regardless, I have put those projects to the side for now and will just be focusing on the podcast. It might take a week or so to get everything sorted out again but I will get it straight. One of the side projects we were working on was attempting to create a network of cottage gear shops so adventure seekers can find new gear and local companies and I use the term cottage loosely. When I lived in LA it was easy to find outdoor gear makers because there were so few.

So, while I am still doing this project it is just going to take a bit longer, maybe mid next year but I can share them with you on the podcast. I have a list of more than 200 companies so far and it is growing weekly. I am not trying to get a complete list of them so to speak just enough to make it a valuable resource to people. Yeah 200 sounds like a bunch but if you break that down evenly that is only 4 per state and there are 12 within walking distance of my house in Denver so there is a long way to go. Today I am going to share a few of those companies with you and talk about what they do. I had interviews scheduled with a few of these companies but do to the recent restructuring here I am having to postpone those for a while. I will do my best to convey relevant information about them though. The first one on list is Simple Shot. This is the grown up slingshot company. Oh man this company is just super cool. Nathan Masters owns Simple Shot Shooting Sports located in North Carolina and he provides us with an assortment of slingshots that is mind blowing. If you ar
