Bacchus contemplates how good his blazer looks as he stares out into the Atlantic.
When I decided to leave my role as Core Faculty to travel the world, I knew it would be a great excuse to get some new gear and truly test the limits of performance in just about every condition imaginable. Of all the fancy new equipment I picked, only one item saw action from the glaciers of Iceland, into places of worship for most of the major faiths of the world, to the rice paddies of Vietnam, and, of course, my time on the Camino de Santiago: my beloved Bluffworks Original Pants.
When I returned to Explorations to lead the International Expedition to Mexico and Guatemala, I shared my favorite gear list while wearing my Bluffs. While I rambled on about my favorite travel pants, one of the parents there took note, and immediately contacted his old college dorm-mate, who just happened to be Stefan Loble, founder and CEO of Bluffworks. And by the end of that meeting, that parent had arranged a donation to the school from Stefan himself.
Since then, Stefan and Bluffworks have continued to donate to the school. You can check out all their amazing gear at www.bluffworks.com. Or you can just look for me around town; I just picked up their new blazer, and I think that I like it even more than the pants, so I’m wearing it everywhere these days.
Please consider supporting Bluffworks as they continue to support Explorations Academy by bidding on some incredible Armchair Auction items, including a washable suit, to support our Vietnam expedition.
