One of the great things about life is that you rarely know ahead of time what will inspire your first or next adventure.

Inspiring Adventure started with exploring the neighborhood on our bikes and grew even more with visits to the grandparents’ farm and house on the river. 

The adventures grew in scope as our parents took us on trips to the mountains and white water rafting.  It was on one of these trips that we bumped in to a guy with a large pack.  He said that he was walking all the way to Maine! 2,000 MILES!!!  What a grand adventure!  As the years have gone on, the adventures have multiplied.  In October of 2016, we started our newest adventure by opening Red Beard’s Outfitter.  As we look back it is easy to see how those very first adventures were the beginning building blocks that led us to open Red Beard’s.  Every day we look forward to sharing in a small part of our customers’ adventures. 

That love of adventure is what drives us to produce a knowledgeable and friendly staff.  We look forward to providing you with quality, dependable products for your every day and life changing moments.

One of the great things about life is that you rarely know ahead of time what will inspire your first or next adventure. A Red Beard’s we have traced our adventures back to various unsuspecting experiences.

A stranger’s story, from a chance encounter on the Appalachian Trail, in North Carolina, led to an attempted thru hike 14 years later. A friendship that started during that trip led to a thru hike of the Long Trail. During that hike, a random side trip, to the stone hut on Mount Mansfield, introduced me to my future wife.

Photographs of Wonder Lake and Mount McKinley, combined with books by Jack London and the movie “Into the Wild” led to a summer adventure at Denali National Park. That summer led to many other adventures, including the opening of Red Beard’s Outfitter.

We would love to hear what inspires your adventures!
