"The Sherpa 100 was absolutely indispensable in the rainforest. It was honestly one of the best things we brought on the trip, by far. We were continually using the Sherpa during our time with the Madidi Park Rangers as we tracked down poachers deep in the Bolivian Amazon." - @ewu5191

Excited to see this new trailer from GZ Ambassador @chrisburkard- "I've waited a year to share this. With three hours of light each day, brutal winter storms and freezing temperatures, Iceland is far from the ideal surf trip. Especially when you arrive moments before the worst storm to hit Icelands shores in nearly 25 years. With more blood sweat and tears than I could ever imagine, I am excited to share my official trailer for my film Under an Arctic Sky. I promise it will be worth it. Film releases Spring 2017." http://www.underanarcticsky.com/

Stillwater I // Halls Crossing, Utah // December 1 // @Forestwoodward. We wake to frozen water jugs and frost coated sleeping bags. Steaming vessels of dark liquid, a heated campground bathroom, and the easy warmth of the desert sun soon have group moral on the rise. Duffels explode and our boats find themselves quickly stuffed to the gills and adorned with hood ornaments of all shapes and sizes as we prepare to spend the next 8 days exploring the lower 90 miles of America’s second largest man made water feature – Lake Powell. Considered by some to be “the ultimate houseboating and RV camping destination in America” we set out equipped with a somewhat different set of tools from the typical user demographic; kayaks, bivy bags, wag bags, dinners to eat out of bags, and a surface-deep interest in the current water levels of the lake coupled with an even deeper interest in the underlying geology of the reservoir.

Last winter, Goal Zero Ambassadors @forestwoodward and @kalenthorien along with adventure storytellers @semi_rad, @juniper_media and Sinjin Eberle set out to paddle 90 miles across Lake Powell. During their journey Woodward kept a journal, over the coming days we will share share some of those entries.

||@Basillynch|| “Our destination was Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, the furthest North you can drive in North America. We had made it, 4,500 miles north of San Diego, being here was a pretty surreal experience, especially after the road we had just driven. Getting to Prudhoe Bay is not very easy, you have to drive the Dalton Highway, a 1,000 mile long dirt road that when we traveled it consisted of mud, snow, huge potholes and semi trucks driving at what seemed like an impossible speed for the road conditions. A lot of people ask me if it was worth it, and my answer will always be yes, even if it was just to say I’ve driven to the northernmost point in North America."

||@BasilLynch|| "Finding a good campsite is always tough, most of the time you end up arriving after the sun has set. Normally when i'm planning out my trips I just wing finding a campsite, I think of it as my daily task on the road. Sometimes you get skunked and sometimes you score, this night was one of the best on the entire trip. We drove from the Salt Flats just outside of Salt Lake City and wanted to stop somewhere near Craters of The Moon national monument, we rolled into camp, a huge field I had found on Google Maps and setup our Light-a-Life Mini lights and got to cooking!"

||By @BasilLynch|| "I recently completed a 12,000 mile 43 day long trip up to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. One of our first stops was in Zion National Park, a favorite of mine. Driving into zion it's hard not to get excited, you watch those steep red walls rise along the sides of the road, and you know it's going to be a great time. My brother @SuttonLynch and I woke up early the first day decided to go hike the narrows, a first for him. As we got deeper into the canyon we started to get worried because my @DelormeGPS was getting low on battery, I like to make sure I am always connected incase of an emergency. We decided to hook up my Nomad 20 solar panel and get to charging, it’s always amazing knowing you can have power anywhere, even in the deepest of slot canyons."

After Kharikhola our team continued up the Khumbu Valley working as they went. In all, 12 villages, over 2,000 pounds of solar panels, batteries, and lights were installed at 10 monasteries, five schools, one hospital, a dental clinic, and an outpost of the Himalayan Rescue Association.
The final component of the journey was to reach Everest Base Camp (EBC). For much of the trip, cloud cover hid the iconic Himalayan peaks. They showed themselves intermittently, but on our final leg in to EBC the clouds parted and the roof of the world revealed itself. We sat and stared. This was the culmination and completion of our mission here in Nepal. “This trip is a reflection of who we are as a company,” said Goal Zero General Manager Bill Harmon. “Our products were originally built to give power to people in rural areas that need it and they’ve since been adopted by adventurers and other groups. This trip was part humanitarian and part adventure, two core components of our culture. We were proud to send employees on this trip to experience that.”

From Juving our team moved toward Kharikhola, the village where a few of our team members were born. While there our team made stops at the medical clinic, monastery, and school. In the lower Khumbu, hydropower has become more readily available over the past few decades. The rough nature of the terrain, however, can make outages a common occurrence. Nearly everything in the Khumbu is brought in by porter or pack animal, meaning replacement parts are constantly days or weeks away. This makes power reserves a necessity, especially for these rural medical clinics. “Spending the day with the people at the Kharikola Hospital really made me realize what a luxury power is,” said Robbie Kerback, an engineering project manager from Goal Zero. “If somebody is here giving birth, or using oxygen, and the grid goes down right now, they don’t have any backup.” #nepaljoy16 @wwtrek @humanoutreachproject @dell

Our team installed a Yeti 1250, two Boulder 90 Solar Panels, and 9 Light-A-Life 350s along with 10 Dell Laptops and four duffel bags of warm clothing. For @humanoutreachproject, this was the beginning of a much larger project. They have since returned to Juving and committed to building desks and chairs for each of the 350 children at the school. They’ve also installed an industrial DIVVY water filter and committed to paying four of the teachers salaries for the year. “This will create a positive ripple effect throughout the community for decades to come,” said Cardinale. “The ease of internet access, electronic capability, and solar lighting will empower the community to live a better life.”

Our teams journey began in Kathmandu. The city is a vibrant blend of beauty and chaos. Final preparations for our solar installs were made before catching a small plane into the lower Khumbu Valley.
