The Great Goat Road Rally of 2011

A couple of weeks ago I went to NYC with 12 goats, 12 college students, 1 professor, and 1 intrepid reporter - Melissa Pasanen, who was on assignment for the Burlington Free Press.

Melissa's article about the road trip came out yesterday, and what an awesome article it is - the Sunday Feature, with 5 full pages of story and photos.

Here's an excerpt:

Just a few blocks from the live market on White Plains Road under the elevated subway tracks, the smoky scent of charcoal filled everyone's nostrils, and a stoplight halted the van conveniently beside a large barbecue rig parked just off the corner of 234th Street.

Within seconds, Patterson and a few students had jumped out with one of the goat carcasses...

If you live in VT, try to find a print copy of the Free Press - otherwise the article is available online for a limited time here:

We found your blog through the Outdoor Blogger Network. We're writing from Columbia Sportswear because we're conducting a Spring Field Test of a few of our newest products. Included among them is a new defense in the battle against bugs for campers like yourself…

Insect Blocker

Insect Blocker is the science behind our Men’s and Women’s Bug Shield Long Sleeve Shirts. The long sleeve is a virtual trifecta of protective awesomeness. Insect Blocker technology keeps six-legged pests at bay, Omni-Shade offers UPF 40 sun protection, and Omni-Wick advanced evaporation technology keeps you cool, dry, and collected, leaving you free to focus on the adventure at hand. We’d love to have you test out the shirt…So, if you're interested just:

Send us your mailing address, and shirt size by 5/20, and we will send you a free Bug Shield Long Sleeve Shirt to try out in the field.

Your expert feedback, honest and forthcoming, is what we ask for in return. Tell us how it performs. Tell us how you feel. We'll follow up with a survey to capture feedback.
