What’s your main contribution of being in the Jury do you think?
The variety of gear that I used and that I am interested in. My outdoor career started at age 6 with the boy scouts, led to a job in outdoor retail, followed me e.g. along the Pacific Crest Trail and brought me to managing outdoor programmes for Outward Bound. Gear is important but more so is the person using it.
