You know those people who just have it – that indescribable energy that you wish could be bottled and distributed for the betterment of mankind? We met some incredible people on our 6 months driving cross country, but none more passionate than one person in particular. We met Matt Conforti in Salt Lake City, Utah ended up spending hours talking to him and making plans for future adventures. He was on the verge of starting an exciting new job in New York City (where we had recently departed) and was spending every moment he could mountain biking and rock climbing before headed east.
Since meeting, we have climbed together at Smith Rock, surfed together in Matunuck, and seen him love his job and also decide to leave his job in pursuit of something more.
While living in Boulder, Matt met the perfect adventure companion in Nick Karas and the two are taking their mountain bikes (and whatever they will hold) to Patagonia for 3 months.
We will be supporting and documenting their adventure along the way – stay tuned for more of their beautiful journey. While they are focusing on mountain biking through new terrain and learning to speak Chilean Spanish, we’ll be sharing their thoughts, photos, and moving images.
