Our trip to Colorado was pretty awesome. We were traveling for almost one entire month. From July 15th to August 12th. We first stopped in Idaho Springs where a dear friend of ours has a small cabin. We visited for one night then headed to Steamboat the next morning to meet some family who has lived there for several decades. Steamboat Springs Colorado is a really nice small ski town with a very relaxed image and feel. We spent a good 10 days there enjoying the sights, gondola, shopping, hiking, camping and some river play. We did attempt to do some trout fishing but the mosquitos were really bad. We were able to take some really great photos of our new belts and did some video as well. Lots of fun. We ended our visit with a trip to the hot springs there for an afternoon. Great time. We were lucky enough to stay at our cousins home which saved us a bundle of money.
After our 10 days in Steamboat we headed to Golden where the same friend who owns the cabin has a home and woodworking shop. We stayed a few days while he wrapped up some projects for a Sprinter van then took off camping near Bueno Vista for 3 days then near Aspen. Aspen area was incredible. It was like those beautiful photos you saw as kid of Colorado where everything was just perfect and beautiful. We really loved that part of the state the most and hope to return next year.
We made it back home to our Alpenlore shop several days ago and have been really working hard to ge!t back in the groove. We will write more about our adventures soon but its time to get some stuff done around here. Thanks for tuning in everyone!

Several of the staff here at Alpenlore have been pretty busy enjoying the beautiful weather this July/Aug in Colorado. We came out here to see how our equipment works and to test it in some possible unforeseen situations where we may require some new item to assist us in wilderness survival.
What we found is that there are several things that we thought would be vital and many other items that would be helpful in some way to make surviving tolerable.
We are still currently in Colorado and are heading back in a few days to try and figure out a way to work these items into our belts while still maintaining a slim and trim design concept.
We are looking forward to developing these new items into our belts for 2018 or hopefully before.
2018 is going to be a great year with the addition of several new belt designs and we hope to move into other areas of survival/travel. We also want to sell some novelty items like T-shirts and jackets as well. Packs are another item that we are really looking forward to developing. Some cool stuff is always unthought of and we hope to be the guys to dream it up and create it for YOU the consumer. Remember, we are also consumers and we can think like a consumer and this gives us the ability to think things thru as to what makes life more convenient and fun.
Well thank you for tuning in and we will see you again soon!
