You’ve employed your trusty compass. (Your smartphone.)
N 37° 45.4845′ W 122° 23.2779′. You’re almost there.
Roll up the garage door for Triple Aught Design, a massive warehouse of a shop that has a borderline-unhealthy obsession with the great outdoors—it’ll be open tomorrow for the Dogpatch Warehouse Sale, then officially open Tuesday.
You might’ve picked up a parka in the old Triple Aught Design shop. Aww. Isn’t that nice. This one’s five times bigger. Concrete everywhere. A Tahoe mountain mural. And endless modules filled with their parkas, waterproof Stealth jackets, merino wool Praetorian sweaters and henleys. For when you’re roughing it for a few days, or going to Blue Bottle when it’s kind of chilly out.
And yeah, you could get a fair amount of that stuff online. But you wouldn’t get the majesty of standing around in a warehouse and breathing in that fresh mountain/warehouse air.
Besides, lots of this stuff isn’t available on the website: knives, a Fellhoelter TiBolt titanium pen (it’ll write upside down... in the rain) or the most rugged spork you’ve ever seen.
And in your time you’ve known some rugged sporks.
