Wolfgang celebrates the unique relationship between dogs and their people. They offer American-made leashes and collars for your pup using only the finest American leathers and textiles. Plus a distinctive collection of t-shirts and hats for you. Built domestically, transported minimally, and replaced rarely. Visit ricksaez.com/wolfgang and get your pup a new Leash or Collar today. I see tails wagging furiously in your future.

 

Show Notes

Intro to the Outdoors

I was always around the mountains. Always kind of doing things outside. Grew up skiing as a kid, grew up backpacking as a kid. Mountains and just being in the outdoors is kind of who I am kind of how I’ve lived my life.

Favorite Gear under $100

I bought a pair of Solomon trail running shoes off of geartrade that I’ve almost worn through. But I have a pair of Salomon S Lab Sense Sevens Ultra sevens that I trail run in quite frequently.

Favorite Books

I don’t read books a lot. I read a lot of publications, trying to stay up with current events. So some of the things like Fast Company and just industry articles What’s happening within the industry and The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, all that stuff.

Advice

I think that the really important part is, to find something that you’re interested in and is in a place, that you can enjoy.
