Osprey – for the Road Less Travelled In 1974, he opened a shop where he crafted made-to-order packs for backpackers and travelers. It took several days to fill an order. For his customers, the legendary packs, known as Santa Cruz Recreational Packs, were worth the wait. By 1987, Osprey packs could be found in stores across the country. The number of styles continues to grow, and even today every design still passes through the hands of Mike Pfotenhauer. Read More Posted on Apr 29, 2019 by Whole Earth
Luggage - What will you carry and will it fit? There are times when packing for a trip that one might envy the snail or the hermit crab for their ability to travel while simultaneously remaining at home. They don’t have to make decisions about what to take when traveling and are unconcerned whether it will all fit in their luggage. But for most travelers, the questions of what to carry and will it fit are challenges to be faced again and again. If you’re traveling for business, chances are good that you won’t need to pack your scuba gear. And if you’re heading out for adventure, you probably won’t need your business suit. At Whole Earth Provision Co., we can outfit you with luggage for either trip, and many others as well. Read More Posted on Apr 9, 2019 by Whole Earth
