Backpacker Get Out More Tour stops in Vasque's hometown of Red Wing, MN

Oct 20, 2011

The knowledgeable Backpacker Magazine's Get Out More team of Sheri and Randy Propster, drew a large crowd last Wednesday evening at the legendary Red Wing Shoe Store situated on beautiful Main Street in Vasque’s hometown of Red Wing, MN.

Unlike most of the Propster’s stops, which consists of traditional outdoor specialty stores, general outdoor and sporting goods stores and festivals, the Red Wing store caters to mid-westerners who need top quality footwear for work, hunting, fishing and, our favorite activity, hiking!

During the 70 minute presentation the Propster’s educated the crowd on key essentials for hiking and backpacking in the cold and wet Upper Peninsula of Michigan (one of their favorite areas in the Midwest to hike) but also on preparedness for trekking anywhere in the USA and abroad.

The crowd was impressed with their wealth of knowledge as well as their plethora of amazing giveaways. From Leki trekking poles, to DeLorme compasses to a sweet SPOT locater, just about everyone in the crowd took home a prize.

Thanks to Dory and her crew at the Red Wing Store for throwing a sucessful event and thanks to the Propster’s for getting just about every single attendee stoked about Getting Out More!
