Spotting Meta 2P in Wyoming

We received a quick note over the weekend from Jeff R. in Arizona. He recently finished a 7 day backpack trip into the Wind River Range, Wyoming with his Meta 2P, and sent us this great shot.

Dover Office Update

We felt like it was a great time to share some progress images of our Dover office. We have exactly one week until we are 100% out of our Nashua office!

The following images show various desks and work areas, some more complete than others. 100% of the construction was performed by NEMO employees. I have to say I have learned a lot, and all this construction has motivated me to take on more projects at home.

The workshop.

Chris has the best view from his desk hands down.

Sales, Marketing, Creative, in that order.

Nate taking a break from shelf construction, the guy just cant quit.

Smooth as glass

Espri in the Tateyama Mountains (Japan)

Loyal NEMO customer Mitsu Ida recently sent over these pics from a recent solo trekking trip to the Tateyama Mountain Range—one of Japan's most famous spiritual mountains. He spent 2 nights at Raicho-Daira trekking to 3,000 meter ridge lines. Not too shabby.

East of the Cascades

Almost everyone in the NEMO office makes a trip out to the Pacific NW at least once a year, whether for business or pleasure, and I'm wrapping up my family vacation in Washington. For this year's annual camping trip we made a pilgrimage to a long-time (3 generation) family favorite -- the Okonogan National Forest along the banks of the Chewuch River.

NEMO Gogo Captured in the Wild!

I have no words to describe what you are about to see. I can only say that you must watch for yourself.

LongTreks Morocco - Episode 3: Safi to Marrakech and the 3 Dees of Danger

Welcome to Episode 3 of LongTreks Morocco. Another must-see video that answers age-old questions such as: is wheat or barley softer to camp on, and what are foraging habits of NEMO Gogos in the wild? Keep up with the action if you can.

The original plan of skating far South to Agadir has changed. Upon realizing the coastal headwinds and gruesome pavement Aaron, Adam, and Paul turn East through almond plantations and wheat fields lined with palm trees. This is the journey to the cultural capital of North Western Africa, Marrakech, and begins with a fierce
competition that Aaron does not want to lose. Adam, the mighty nose manual sorcerer casts a spell upon Aaron's poor soul. On this journey they encounter police, rare wild animals hunted to near extinction, and ever so unpredictable pavement.

Lotus Flower Tower, Cirque of the Unclimbables

In the last month we have been doing more driving then climbing, but that's the necessary evil of a road trip. Our 40-day "Tour de Canada" took us from Vancouver, BC up to Skagway, Alaska, over to the NW Territories, and down through Alberta. I think we spent a lot in gas, but it's all in liters and Canadian $'s up there, so who knows?!

Since the last update, we have completed three more big climbs. The Lotus Flower Tower in NW Territories Canada, Bugaboo Spire in Alberta, and the North Ridge on the Grand Teton in Wyoming. We were going to climb three more classics in the Banff Alberta area, but they were out of condition (too much snow), so we passed right on by. Now its on to the D1 on Longs Peak in Rocky Mt NP.

Here's a video of the most recent classic climb, the SW Face of the Lotus Flower Tower in the Cirque of the Unclimbables.
