A Sheathed Sword

4/22/2024
“When in a fight to the death, one wants to employ all one's weapons to the utmost. I must say that to die with one's sword still sheathed is most regrettable.” ― Miyamoto Musashi, A Book of Five Rings Although Musashi is referring to literal sword duels to the death. I feel that this quote is a great analogy for many facets of life. In this solocast, I discuss figurative swords that many of us have sheathed that prevent us from living life to the utmost.

As a native Californian, Glen spent a lot of time in the state's outdoors while he was growing up. At age 17, he set out on an amazing journey and he rode a bike across the entire United States.

And in 1998, he founded Gossamer Gear, a company dedicated to manufacturing ultralight backpacking equipment. Since then Glen has made numerous contributions to the backpacking community, and he would eventually be known by the trail name, "Legend".
