@moonmountainman // “I have been using @goalzero products exclusively to charge my Camera batteries, Flashlight batteries, Laptop, and Cell Phone. Of course the solar panels are fantastic for long backpacking and road trips, but I also found the power packs (Sherpa 50 and 100) are a life saver for charging electronic while traveling in areas where power outlets are few. In Peru power outlets were hard to find and often in inconvenient spots, so instead I would just use the Sherpa power packs to charge my electronics while I sat comfortable and used them. I liked not being tied to power outlets so much that since I have returned from Peru, I have continued to use exclusively the Sherpa Power Packs to charge everything that I have while I sit where I please. Beyond the power packs and the solar panels, @goalzero also makes the best camping lights on the markets, but I'll take about that another time. Can you tell I love @goalzero?”
Goal Zero powering @travisburkephotography’s adventures in all the crazy locations he finds himself in // “Exploring the oldest desert in the world along the Skeleton Coast in Namibia.
During high tide the Atlantic Ocean comes all the way up to the dunes and a lot of the coast becomes impassable. We barely made it through and returned by charging up and over the dunes, which made for quite an adventurous day with @theblondeabroad.
Huge thanks to @atiholidays and @matadornetwork for making this possible!”

After we finished the humanitarian work in the village of Pashpa at the base of the Cordillera Blanca Range, we headed up to climb Mt. Ishinca and embrace the magic, power and beauty of Peru's majestic mountains. @goalzero @humanoutreachproject @dell @wigwam @fiveten_official”

on the newly built computer center // “we in the town of Pashpa, at the base of the Cordillera Blanca Range, Peru. We installed solar power, solar lights, and 10 new @dell laptops for the school that has over 180 students and teachers. We also brought 1500 pairs of shoes and socks for the locals from @fiveten_official and @wigwamsocks.
Goal Zero partnered with @humanoutreach project and @dell to make this happen. This was one of two computer centers in the Peru project. Stay tuned next Tuesday when we release the film that covers our humanitarian work in Peru.” By @mikelibecki
@danpatitucci 3 of 3 // “Working in the mountains requires power, for cameras, headlamps, watches, and especially phones. “During the book runs, we had to continually check our routes so we can later share an accurate tour. I also kept our @alpsinsight social media going with as much live posting as we had time for. To keep things as light and efficient as possible we used the Flip batteries, taking whichever size was most appropriate for each day.”
@danpatitucci 1 of 3 // Throughout the entire summer and fall of 2017, longtime pro mountain sport photographers and Goal Zero ambassadors @danpatitucci & @janinepatitucci, along with writer @kimberly.strom, ran, documented, and photographed the very best trail running routes they could find in the Swiss Alps for their upcoming book #RuntheAlpsSwitzerland.
They want to offer big mileage, huge vertical, and long days out in stunning landscapes, and that required them to do the same runs, in their entirety, while photographing and documenting the routes. This required power in the lightest possible form.
We’re proud of @brodyleven and for his constant dedication and determination to educate and bring to light the causes climate change has on our planet //
“Like most of us, I surround myself with people who largely share my views on what is best for our planet. It's an "echo chamber," as some call the phenomena of one's influencers and audience being the same, and both in line with his/her beliefs. For me, it's not such a bad place. Particularly as a logic-driven person, I appreciate seeing others' reason and the ways it influences and confronts or confirms my own. I'm sure someone here will warn me of the "danger" of this, similar to how I'm often reminded of the "danger" of not owning an arsonal of guns to prepare for the "inevitable uprising," or the "danger" of allowing "the government" to sanction use of our public lands. Sigh.
Last week, I again took a step out of my echo chamber, attending a climate change conference...for conservatives. The seminar was full of people who, for reasons sometimes different than my own, understand that science is science, and there is no "believing" it. Whether or not you believe in gravity, you won't wake up with your bed pushing you against the ceiling. Motivated by religion, money, or obligation, the folks in the room demonstrated a side of climate change mitigation I was less familiar with. And while we are on different pages about a lot of things in life, we share a fear of the track humans have put our planet on, and a desire to shift it”
