The Standup4greatbear Expedition was awarded the Be First Sponsorship from First Ascent. First Ascent is a new outdoor gear and clothing company that supplied me with an incredible line of outdoor apparel for the expedition. I was really excited to be associated with First Ascent a company with a motto of Guide Built. Guide Trusted, which really appealed to me. I am excited about my future with Standup4GreatBear. First Ascent has been very supportive of helping me keep oil tankers off our north coast. Recently I wrote a summary of the expedition for their BORN OUT THERE Blog, here it is.
