Born in the thriving metropolis of Ogden, Utah Jonny "A" Atencio is no stranger to the mountains.
Once, in Idaho, he caught a wild steelhead with a piece of dental floss and a strip of bacon- He befriended the steelhead and then trained it to hunt down and retrieve smaller fish for his sustenance.
He has been sighted in more than one VIP lounge, sprawled out on the couch, PBR in hand- even though they were only serving Belvedere and Cristal
His training regime is extreme: some say, a bit too extreme, in fact, it is often referred to in all caps. EXTREME.
Using only a can of Adobe sauce, some fresh garlic cloves, a pork roast and a book of matches, he made an award winning Barbacoa Pork that was on the Today show- Al Roaker really enjoyed it.
As you can see, his beard is a mix between weak and not so good-
He has worked for the Secret Service, the FBI, and Interpool at the same time, from a remote location- it got to be too crazy for him
He has 4 pairs of Blundstone's, and rotates between them weekly. People think he has dozens of them.
He is addicted to Green Chile.
He is American.

This bike is a timeless beauty. The attention to detail is impeccable. I absolutely love this bike! It is quick, light and nimble. It's a real crowd pleaser, not that that is an important thing- but people do really trip out on this bike. Check out what Aaron Gulley at Outside Magazine had to say after riding it for a few months.
I have this light on my bars, and a Diablo MK5 on my helmet. This combo is seriously amazing. Well made, no hassles with a battery pack and wires. People trip out when you ride up on them- you have to turn it all the way down, or people thing a train is about to pass them. I love these lights!
You know when you get a shirt and everything about it is just right? Arcteryx does not disappoint with this piece. The fit, the styling, the details of this polo are all on point. The only con I'd have to say is that they don't have as many colors as I'd like to see. I could easily donate all of my other polo shirts to the homeless shelter, and only wear these. Treat yourself right, get some. After writing this review, I am going get myself another one!
If you like blundstone boots or other pull on work boots, you'll dig this Sorel's. You can wear them in the winter treachery, and still walk into your dinner/ business meeting an not look like an Arctic explorer with your giant lace up winter boots. They could be a bit warmer, but overall I love them.
My kids love these boots, the easy on and easy off makes the process of going out faster. We live in Salt Lake so it really doesn't get that cold, so these work out perfectly. If you lived in an area where it was consistently in the teens or below- I'd get a warmer Sorel type boot.

I love these socks, they are a great weight, not too thick, not to thin. It would be great if there were more color options available.
These skis are a great match with Dyanfit TLT's- light, great everyday ski, and are great for powder.
This cool kit works like a charm. The days of putting glue on tube and waiting for it to vulcanize are in the past. I can't say enough good things about this little kit. GET ONE.
I have been skiing in this all year, it really is awesome. Perfect for a base layer, I generally only wear this and shell pants and jacket. If its really cold I throw on a insulated top. I usually try to get my "business" taken care of in the morning before putting this on, because it is a bit of a pain if you have to do so later in the day. That is the only downside of sweet piece. For the price its a killer deal.
I use this on all of my leather boots (at least the ones that I plan on getting in the muck with) and leather gloves. One tube lasts a long time, well worth the $8.50.
I get complements on this watch all the time. Besides its good looks, it truly is an amazing watch. Hopefully soon it will be compatible with Strava. You won't be disappointed, get one- now.
For me, I really wanted to have a mitten for colder days and one that has a short cuff that you can tuck into your jacket. This is perfect for what I was looking for. It is made with bomber materials and is a first class product. I don't see this being my everyday ski glove because on days that are above freezing, it gets a bit toasty and I get sweaty hands. For everyday use, I have been using the Hestra Vertical Cut Freeride gloves. I am a big fan of Hestra products, and they have always handled the abuse that I dish out on them. Get some, you too will become a life long supporter.
