For the past 12 years, I've spent most every weekend traveling around the PNW in search of great adventures. Shared experiences in these wild places create a close bond that can never be broken. So it is with a very heavy heart when it became time for one of my closest travel companions and I to say goodbye for the final time. Sven was an excellent listener, always on time, and loves the outdoors as much as I do. So its quite emotional, but as he knew his journey was ending, he spent his final days putting together a very nice video to remember the wonderful times we had and to provide me with some parting wisdom.
