Store Manager, Chicago
Here is my Bio.
My name is Nic.
I's a badass.
Please come to my store.
For realzies now.
I'm Nic! I was born and raised in the foothills of the Ozarks where I played in the Buffalo River (with real buffalo). As I grew, I conquered many sandstone bluffs and boulders suffering many insignificant injuries. To aid my healing I would often return to the rivers, where I enjoyed catching fish with my bear hands. Ask me if I ever fought a bear for a fish. Also, ice cream is a good therapy.
Recently, I was called to the Windy City. Despite my surly beard and southern swagger, I have found a new home here at Moosejaw.
You may seek me out here at the store to have words, but always bring cookies. Always.
Get to know Moosejaw, Chicago
Laser Portal to the year 2000. The Play Station 2 is released in Japan. Natalie Rasmussen and Ryan Crump started dating. The Backstreet Boys have a record titled Millineum. Gas costs an average of $1.26 per gallon. Moosejaw Mountaineering comes to the Big City. Boom.
Since 2000 Moosejaw has been straight up kickin' it in the Windy City--also known as Chi-town, Chi, the Dubstep Arena, Frank's kinda town, and CHICAGO. Moosejaw Chicago is known for its amazing selection of High-end Outdoor Gear and Apparel. No matter what your wants or needs, we can get 'err done.. Like to Climb? We've got climbing do-dads. Like Camping. Bam! We've got camping gear. Need a hug? Come here....lets do this.
But in all seriousness, we have footwear for the trail, for the crag, for the beach or for about town and we'll make sure that you get what you need. In fact, I think La Sportiva fits all of those categories.
**is the threat, "don't ever set one of those unsymmetrical feet in this shop again" polite?
I'm sure there are stories like this to explain the origins of all kinds of camping gear. Maybe Leki's trekking poles were modeled after that wacky walking stick bug. Maybe Marmot's down sleeping bags were inspired by a snake eating a smaller snake. I don't know; I don't have all the answers... but please feel free to ask our Chicago employees.
