Return To The Outdoors: Yvon Chouinard

A month or so back I posted about the Return To The Outdoors initiative that Timex Expedition and The Conservation Alliance were sponsoring. The idea is to get us all to “return to the outdoors” and reconnect with nature and outside activities.

When the site launched they hosted a couple of cool videos, one from Conrad Anker and the other from Steph Davis, with both of them sharing their thoughts on why they love the outdoors, what draws them into the backcountry and compels them to pursue the activities that they love so much. Now the Return To The Outdoors website has been updated with another video, this time from Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia outdoor gear and an active environmentalist. You can check out the video below in which Yvon talks about his love for the outdoors, the Art of Fly Fishing, and a lot more.

And don’t forget that you can win gear for yourself by writing about or video taping, what inspires you to go outdoors. Click on this page to write your story or upload your video.
