Trip Route, Some Samples, & Other Updates

Welp, it's starting to get real.  It's a Monday afternoon on a cool Fall day and neither of us are at work.  The era unemployment/funemployment begins!  We've been running around all morning packing, working on the truck, and throwing a ton of stuff on Craigslist.  With our departure date we wanted to post a quick route update and a rough schedule.  The more friends, family, fans and strangers we meet along the way the better!


Above is a rough route of our first leg of the trip, we  have the destinations in place with no actual timetable for the most part, so bear with us.  We figure to spend the first week or so in New York visiting our families before heading down the coast.  Check the rough schedule below and if you're in/around any of these areas and would want to meet up!

We're a few days out and still have plenty of gear to get rid of.  We'll be posting a ton of samples and unreleased one-offs on the store the next few days and have been keeping our eBay and Craigslist posts flowing.  Thank you all again for all of the support.  See you on the road!

2016 & The Future of The Beaten Path Distribution

When I started this brand two years ago, all I really wanted to do was sell enough gear to produce the next season.  To "break even."  My intentions never included making money, that's what my day job was for.  I'm blessed that I was able to sit in that comfort zone; where I could keep running seasons but not gain enough money from it where I had to worry about it being a source of income rather than an expensive hobby.  What I really didn't expect was all of the amazing brands and people I'd meet along the way.
