WOOLRICH x West America – PART III

Woolrich, whose apparel has been worn by explorers and adventurers since 1830, has teamed up with Jordan Hufnagel and James Crowe of adventure outfitter West America on an epic motorcycle odyssey from Whistler, BC to Patagonia and back.  The duo will be wearing Woolrich apparel while documenting their trip and have developed a capsule of apparel inspired by the journey.  Below is the second in a series of  report from the road.

Jordan and I met up in Santa Cruz after spending a couple days in San Francisco and San Jose catching up with friends, the first chore of the day was to change the oil in the bikes before heading south, a quick oil swap in the Autozone parking lot and we were off.

Big Sur south of Monteray always amazes me, the lack of development and rolling hills mixed with hanging cliffs take you back in time.  The weather was a mixed bag of clear sky and patches of clouds that would ingulf you, we had our eyes peeled for a road shooting up into the hills that we had been told to check out, sure enough just as it was getting dark we came across the dirt we had hoped to find.   Chasing the sun up into the hills above Big Sur for 5 miles put us at a majestic view point overlooking the pacific, perfect warm winds and plenty of room to set up camp.  Matt Bauer who had spent the day surfing on the coast had already set up camp and was happy to have company, we shared road stories and took in the surroundings.

We got up at 6 am to catch the sunrise through the clouds and descended the hill back down to the 1 for a chili morning in the coastal fog, by the end of the day we where splitting lanes through LA traffic to set up camp at  our good friend Josh Porter’s place.
