Happy New Year from Kit Fox Outfitters, and what a year we had in 2019 and are looking forward to 2020! Last year this time we were coming back from the Grand Canyon and where still an online outfit celebrating our fifth year in business. It was a big year Steph had left her career in the biotech’s to do KFO full time and we were working on the next move. That next move was the Ramona Trail Challenge and working with the Ramona Chamber of Commerce. Well I can’t say enough about what a great organization they are, after all a few months into the challenge they turned us on to a retail space here in Ramona.
Talk about a big leap forward which was a very exciting step forward. From our shop we have added a significant amount of gear and began teaching our Backcountry Skills Classes here in shop. I have really enjoyed the classes and the great new friends we have been meeting. And even though we have the shop it has not kept us from continuing to Get The Fox Out There from exploring our local backcountry to the eastern Sierras and back up to White Mountain. My big trip for the year was the Rubicon Trail and Dusy Ershim in September.
So, 2019 was a busy and exciting year, but what about 2020? Well glad you asked! 2020 is something we are looking forward to very much. In late January we begin the Ramona Trail Challenge again with great prizes and some new trails and things to do so stay tuned there.
We will continue to have our Backcountry Skills Classes here in the shop and will also be adding some new courses and free classes for everyone. We are working on also providing some outdoor experiences as well so make sure you are checking back in with us.
One of the exciting things about being new is it seems like we are adding new gear every month so it’s like a different store often as we are shifting product to make room for exciting new stuff! Keep coming by the shop and checking online you never know what we might add!
We really appreciate everyone’s support and you checking in with us, it means a lot and we are super stoked to be on this journey. 2020 is full of exciting new opportunities we can wait to see and we are looking forward to meeting new people making new friends and hanging out with our old friends. All we can say is thank you and we can’t wait for what 2020 brings!
