We are excited to announce the winners of our 12 Days of Buff 2014 promotion!
Day 1, 12/11: Original Buff® –> Sung
Q: What is something about your history or “roots” that you’re most proud of?
I’m proud of my Korean culinary roots – especially the culture’s preservation techniques. Kimchi, fish, veggies, you name it. True wisdom.
Day 2, 12/12: Wool Buff® –> Laura M.
Q: How do you “give back” in your daily life?
On my daily walks through the neighborhood I pick up trash. The worst day is after trash pick up but I get some exercise and I am sure some neighbors think I am nuts.
Day 3, 12/13: Neckwarmer Knitted Polar Buff® –> Lindsay Malone
Q: What’s your favorite thing to do when cozying up after a long day in the cold?
Driving home in the snow, up to our cabin up Emigration Canyon in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains… ditching the ski layers and hopping in the hot tub out on the deck. Nothing warms you up better than a toasty hot tub on a snowy day. Followed by some High West beverages, of course.
Day 4, 12/14: Junior Buff® –> Melissa R-S
Q:Who is a young “adventurer” in your life that keeps you inspired, and how do they do it?
My 5-year old son. He’s always been on the timid side, but he’s recently discovered that he loves to boulder and rock climb. I’m so proud of him for trying something new!
Day 5, 12/15: Sport Series Water Gloves –> Brian L
Q: Where’s your favorite place to get out on the water & what do you like to do when you’re there?
There is a great nearby river that is full of trout. It’s always a great day to head down there and catch a few for dinner.
Day 6 12/16: Hoodie Thermal Pro Buff® –> Kevin
Q: Where have you caught yourself unprepared for the elements, and what did you do?
My friend and I once got an old Dodge station wagon stuck in frozen ruts on a logging road after making a wrong turn while heading to a cabin for a weekend with other friends. We didn’t know how far we had to go to get to the cabin having never been there before, so we ended up walking back to the main road for about 5 miles on a -20 degree night to get someone to pull us out. That was a long dark, cold, cold walk…. Lots of good conversation along the way!!
Day 7, 12/17: Neckwarmer Wool Buff® –> Sid
Q: Do you have a dog? If so, tell us all about them. What’s their name? How do they bring joy to your life?
I have two dogs, they are both rescued. Our first and oldest dog is a yellow lab mix and his name is Tonka. He’s been there for us for a long time and has been on many adventures with me, including going on rock climbing trips when he was younger. He’s moved to two homes with us and has the best disposition ever! His kindness and gentleness is the best I’ve ever had the experience to witness.
Our second recue dog is a Lousiana Catahoula mix named Kable that is very energetic. He’s very active and brings good healthy habits to me by making sure we’re outdoors walking, running, or just playing. He went on his first 3 mile run with me this past week, and I look to many different adventures! He’s also helped get Tonka moving in his older years.
Day 8, 12/18: Polar Buff® –> Kim
Q: What is/are your favorite thing(s) about winter?
Favorite part of winter is seeing the bare bones of the earth-being able to see ridgelines and hills and hollers that you can’t see in the summertime due to the lush greenery.
Day 9, 12/19: Cotton Jacquard Buff® Infinity Scarf –> Dana Reeves
Q: Who Inspires You to Get Outside?
I find inspiration all around me- from my daughter, to my brother to t.v. Personalities. Shows like Alaska the last frontier, survivor, swamp people and duck dynasty – these are daily reminders their is more to life than cell phones and computers…
Day 10, 12/20: Reversible Polar Buff® –> Rob Dudley
