Festivals for the Rest of Us

This weekend NEMO will be traveling to Trail Days in Damascus, VA and the New River Rendezvous near Fayetteville, WV. If you are around either of these areas be sure to stop by our booths to meet us, see some new products, and grab some stickers.

Trail Days, for the unfamiliar, is a nearly week long festival that takes over the tiny town of Damascus to celebrate the Appalachian Trail and the people who hike and maintain it. It's an event especially well attended by thru-hikers and thru-hiker alumni. I'm looking forward to catching up with some of my 2003 trail companions. Connie and I will be there today through Sunday showing off some current tents, debuting some future products, and helping to repair hikers' torn or battered gear.

Cam, Caitlin, and Tsuba are headed down to the New River Gorge for some fantastic climbing and to show off the NEMO product line. The festival is a fundraiser for New River Alliance of Climbers. Besides the planned climbing, bouldering, and dyno comps, attendees can also hit up "Dessertapalooza" and some Sumo pad wrestling.
