Niblewill Nomad

The email my father Glen received from the "old intrepid", long-time backpacker, Nimblewill Nomad, was so heart-warming I wanted to post it for you all to see. Check his website below for his impressive track record and current adventures.

Glen -

I'll be listing Gossamer Gear as one of my sponsors for Odyssey 2013–closing the loop on a 17,000-mile trek around this grand old USofA, the lower 48 (all four corners, all four sides). There's an announcement up now on my Website.

What might be of interest to you: I'll again be carrying my gear in a GVP/Gossamer Gear pack (the Murmur you modified for me last year will make this trip just fine) and upon completion of this year's trek, your packs will have also completed the entire 17,000-miles with me.

Glen, over the years you have (personally) kindly and generously supported and encouraged this old intrepid. For that, I am most grateful–thank you!

God Bless,
