Gear Patrol Magazine: Issue Two
Pride of place comes through in ways that can't be conveyed on a magazine page. It's the small satisfaction of a papermaker strolling his studio's back garden, the look of a snow surfer eyeing 10 inches of fresh powder on his home slope, the confidence of a boat captain who knows exactly where to catch his fish. And so while the best advice is to just go, take the trip, see these places and meet these people for yourself, we've set our pencil to the page and put pixels to print to offer the second best service: storytelling.
For Issue Two, our team of writers and photographers traveled to five destinations, spending time with the people that make each location a notable spot on the globe. We talked with Nairo Quintana on cycling in the mountains outside of Bogotá, Mike Lata on fishing in the Lowcountry, Kan Yasuda on his introspective art, and walked the Oaxacan countryside with a handful of maestro mezcaleros bringing the agave spirit onto the global stage. We also celebrated one of publishing's greatest heroes, Esquire's former editor-in-chief David Granger, and his 19-year career in the industry. It doesn't compare to having the salty air in your face on Lata's boat or sitting down for a blanco tequila and lime with Granger, but for armchair adventure, it's pretty damn close.
