Going to the Olympic Trials is an adventure. My adventure included visiting old friends, touring all the impressive facilities at the University of Oregon, and stealing away to Corvallis during the break to visit my brother, Kurt. We were both at the U of O for a while, but he finished up at Oregon State, just up the road.
As an engineer, he just “geeks” over any opportunity to solve a problem. I love to hang with Kurt. He has great ideas and high quality friends, including Trish and Larkin – the amazing and capable ladies who own and operate Soft Star Shoes in Corvallis Oregon. Just imagine four people committed to manufacturing quality shoes and socks, right here in America, having a “group geek” all day over the many related marketing, selling and operational challenges we face. That’s a great day in sunny Oregon!
