Goal Zero Solar had an open house at their new facility South of Salt Lake City in Bluffdale Utah, and I attended with my family. Good friends Ryan and Jennifer Hamilton were there as well with their daughters. The kids had a ton of fun on the little climbing wall and slide in the entry, and Jennifer and I met with Matt Larsen to discuss some business matters (we’re both Elite Team Athletes for Goal Zero) and Matt spent a few minutes showing me the most exciting thing there – the new Sherpa 50. Very small, very powerful, and very useful.
I really look forward to taking one with me to Aconcagua in December, since I will be there for a couple weeks, and will most likely be needing a lot of power while there. I’ve been using the Guide 10 Adventure Kit quite a bit the past several months and have become rather fond of it and dependent upon it. I think the Sherpa 50 will be just as useful, if not more so, on my quest for the Seven Summits.
