I live in eastern PA, but grew up in western PA, so I occasioanlly get to drive 6 hrs across the northern Appalachian mountains. This trip I took some time to stop in at Brain Vargo's retail store...Vargo Outdoors. They moved to a new location this year in Lewisburg, PA.
I met Brian at Trail Days several years ago since I used to live close to Damascus, VA. Although it's a long drive down to Virgina from Pennsylvania, he has been one of the regulars there to talk with hikers and spread the UL backpacking word.
He was working in his nearby warehouse today, so I didn't didn't get to chat with him, but it was nice to see his new digs. The guy working on inventory was very nice and great to talk with. The new place is much more open than his original location and next to a bike path, which a bit different from his "downtown" location.
In addition to the typical outdoor retail stuff he still has his own Vargo Ti gear, including his fairly new Hexagon wood burning stove and Ti Bot bottle/pot.
If you are in the area, make a detour to stop by; otherwise check out his website. I think it's great to see one of the earliest lightweight cottage manufacturers thriving in retail stores, on-line, and in his own brick-and-mortar locations.
