    “Slippers on Ice” – An Interpretive Winter Death Racing Production

    Thursday, 27 March 2014

    It was not my intention to participate the Winter Death Race this year. In fact, I had only planned to do Summer DR. There is something about Andy Weinberg saying you should check it out that takes away all common sense, but who needs common sense anyway. Perhaps this is how we keep getting in trouble with our significant others, our inability to tell Weinberg no. In retrospect, I will say this was one of the best decisions I have made in quite a long time, either that or I have gone completely off the deep end, which is a distinct possibility.

WE'VE MOVED IN MT PLEASANT!!

Look for us in February in BELLE HALL Shopping Center at 600 Long Point Rd. We will be beside Pawley's Front Porch and Stein Mart. We appreciate your business and hope to see you in the new spot! Our phone number will remain the same 843-849-3482.

The Backpacker Quality Gear, Inc. started in 1973 as South Carolina's first outfitter. Supporting 3 generations, The Backpacker has grown into a family business that provides the best hiking, backpacking and outdoor gear in the industry. We're more than just an outfitter, though. At The Backpacker, we're runners, paddlers, hikers, climbers, trekkers and, above all else, we're gear heads. We don't just stock outdoor equipment from your favorite brands, we actively test it. Whether is gear from The North Face, Patagonia, Marmot, Chaco, Keen, Osprey, Gregory, Vasque, Merrell, Vibram, Big Agnes, Kelty, MSR, Columbia Sportswear, Royal Robbins, Mountain Hardwear or Salomon, we wear it, we stress test it, and when it's good, we recommend it. And we back it all with our Rock Solid Customer Service.
