What's on your summer packing list?
Eric: I never wore shorts before. Now I can't imagine life without the Free Fly Hybrid Shorts.

Tanner: All my lightweight Free Fly clothing, YETI bags, fly rods
What's on tap at 5 o'clock?
Eric: Lewis' margs!
Tish: Frosé baybay

How do you unwind on vacay?
Eric: Get outside with a sketchpad or head to the beach with the kindle.
Tish: Evening walks with my pups (the only time it's cool enough for them to leave the house).
Austin: It's 5 o'clock somewhere :)
Jenna: By chasing my two toddler boys.
Sy: If I'm traveling near the coast, I try to leave time for at least one surf session. It's such an unique way to experience a new place.
Emma: Put me on the beach with a book and I'm happy.
McKenzie: I like to explore and be active on vacay but at my own pace... no rushing or over-scheduling activities.
Lily: Getting up and going for a run. It's my fun way to explore a new place.
Tanner: Not much unwinding with a 1-year old in tow, but hoping to sneak away for some trout fishing in a few of my favorite streams.
