Crush it for Climate

Join the Outdoor State as we take on challenges all March long, to get stoked and get educated on fighting climate change to protect our playgrounds.

Join us in Central Oregon as we #CrushIt4Climate and take action to help protect the outdoor places we love from the impacts of climate change. Our atmosphere currently has over 400 parts per million of CO2 which is well above what scientists believe is a “safe” limit. Solutions like transitioning to renewable energy sources will help prevent further increases which is why we want you to spend 350 minutes or more outside between March 22 until March 31 and then write to your lawmakers asking them to show support for Oregon transitioning to 100% renewable energy.

 

Here is how you join:

  1. Text “crushit4OR” to 65351 to get started! 
  2. Share on social media how you like to spend time outdoors in Central Oregon using the hashtags #CrushIt4Climate #CrushIt4OR and #POWCentralOregon
  3. Join our Strava Club and do 350 minutes or more of activity outside from March 22 to March 31
  4. Submit a letter to your representatives to show support for HB 2995 – 100% Clean Energy for All on Take Action Tuesday (March 23)

Giveaway Prizes:

  • One lucky winner will receive a pair of Skullcandy headphones based on social media posts using the above hashtags
  • A second lucky winner will receive a Burton gift card for completing the Strava challenge
  • Finally, a third lucky winner will receive a pair of POC goggles for submitting a letter to their representative

A look back at #crushit4climate

I was reading about the condition of the Cascades last night. We attempted Mt Rainier in 2008, stayed at Camp Muir and had to go down due to an ice storm. It was crazy but definitely a trip I’ll never forget. They say they amount of snow melt is forcing the guides to change up their routes. They’re even shutting down the climbs early this year. This piece, “Placid” will be available at Kreuser Gallery next month for the Wax Exhibit. These mountains are old…smooth like the water. Like some of the Rockies. Lets fight this climate change fight to preserve these beauties and all they have to offer. Happy Thursday! ...

Squeezed in a ride as soon as the rain stopped. Sun burned off the clouds by the end. Spotted a snake (tow in one day - a black snake on an impromptu walk).

Today felt a bit like this.

Imposing. Beautiful. Hard.

Kilometer 23 on the bike and the rain made itself understood that it was sticking around. On the return, I continued a touch to settle a nag, forcing two turn-arounds. Again, no fotos. Ditto with the dog walk. I’m not sure how many turn arounds we had - at least four…though the rain was light during the walk, it was persistent. No thunder, so all was good for my friend. Get in as much out as you can.

The sporting goods industry must be made aware of the challenges associated with sports equipment. There is a need for biodegradable materials and take-back systems within the sports industry! 🏸♻️
