10E2608: Carhartt - the "UP"

Apparently it 'gets frosty' in the upper peninsula of Michigan. That is a euphemism for 50 below... Cool [stop it! - ed] little vid about some of the crews there from Carhartt - even better they don't even mention their own name...

10E2606: Up Mountain Switchel - Stronger Together

Spiritual vitality, the force of life itself, is something each of us has within. Through building skateboarding parks in Native American communities, art and media programs, and supporting healthy living, the Stronghold Society nourishes indigenous knowledge to build leaders of the future. A portion of your purchase of Up Mountain Switchel products goes directly toward real impact. You. Us. Stronghold. Together.

To learn more about Stronghold Society and to support their life-changing work visit the Stronghold Society website.

I have recommended this brand of Up Mountain Switchel before, and here - switchel being a pre-revolutionary grabyoubythethroat mix of ginger, lemon and sweet (in this case maple).  Not only is is great and great for you but they are good people doing good. You can buy the OG or their carbonated version at NY area Whole Foods and all around VT - or direct here

They get the 'unique swag' prize for sure with those coveralls... Mixes v well if you drink like that - or just get high on life with it.
