I sprouted up in southwest Michigan before branching out to the fine school in East Lansing. After I grabbed my degree, I moved west for some powder hounding in the Rockies. Moved back to the great state of Michigan and I've been posting up at Moosejaw ever since.

Get to know Moosejaw, Birmingham

Birmingham could be called the Flagship of the Moosejaw Family. Of course, nobody ever does that, because that's not actually a thing. Located on The All-American Road* that is Woodward Avenue, Birmingham boasts the greatest number of shop scooters and the highest volume of in-store shenanigans per capita. The staff at Birmingham prides itself at being the Best Presidential Trivia Team among 14-47 year-old North American Pedestrians, and includes the highest number of Ambidextrous Salespersons this side of the San Andreas Fault.* The Birmingham shop will soon be undergoing a major facelift. To be clear, this is purely for its own self-esteem and not to make ANY other shops stop making fun of its overly large forehead. Birmingham is beautiful, no matter what they say.

Winters in Michigan can get pretty messy and I decided to make them even messier when I made homemade slushies using the fresh snow and a little creativity. I was craving a little summer in the winter, so I wore my shorts, flip-flops and a dab of sunscreen and went to town. Actually, I just stayed in my backyard. Yes. I got an epic brain freeze, but my buns stayed warm because I was wearing my down coat from Moosejaw. It was my mom's suggestion. They love that stuff. Moosejaw also carries a lot of brands that make the warmest winter jackets for the coldest slushie-making-sessions, including Arc'teryx, Marmot, Patagonia and The North Face. Only the cool kids get to wear The North Face though. Oh well, maybe next year.

Walking around Birmingham can be somewhat uncomfortable, if you're wearing the wrong shoes. Trust me. I have a blister, on top of a blister from a pair of shoes that my ex-girlfriend left at my house. I know what you're thinking, and no, they weren't women's shoes. They were men's shoes that she stole from the guy she was seeing while she was seeing me. Her name was Allison. Don't ever talk to Allison. Had this dude gone to Moosejaw, I probably would've been spared the blister and the broken heart. Head over to our Birmingham shop and buy a pair of shoes by Chaco, Keen or Merrell and don't talk to any Allisons while you're there. The Moosejaw shop in Birmingham also carries TOMS, which I've heard from my mom are supes great for walking around downtown. Get a pair like mine, not like that other dude's.

If you visit our Birmingham shop, ask the prettys who work there all about the climbing gear we carry. They seem to know a lot more about climbing gear than hairspray. Good thing we hired Perry for that. Anyways, they will point out all the necessities like carabiners, belay devices, chalk bags, rope and a lot other gear. We carry some of the best brands like Black Diamond, Metolius, Petzl and many more. Bears like Black Diamond. Bears. Beats. Battlestar Galactica.

The first ever recognized form of backpacking was simply a guy getting attacked from behind by a monkey. Bystanders were very impressed by how evenly the beast's weight was distributed over the unfortunate man's shoulders and waist. It wasn't long before a monkeybag, or "backpack", was designed and created. Lucky for you, we carry these monkeybags, I mean "backpacks" at our Moosejaw shop in Birmingham. With brands like The North Face, Osprey, Camelbak and many others, you're bound to be impressed. We have some of the most unique styles and colors in town. Ask any of the shop employees and they will get you set up with coolest looking pack, or at least the one that most resembles a monkey.

We know. Your hair looks fantastic. We saw you coming out of Maalouf. But your outfit could use some work. Don't worry, we've got you covered. May I suggest a Lole yoga jacket for the pretty and an Icebreaker fitted tee for the sir? If you're not picking up what I'm putting down, we carry a wide array of products from Arc'teryx, Billabong, Patagonia, Roxy, and The North Face including hoodies, pants, and many other types of apparel to complement your new doo. In addition, we like to send you off with a couple complimentary spritzes of hairspray, courtesy of Perry's mom.
