This blog will chronicle my preparations for the experience of a life time (so far lol). In early April 2012 I will embark on a multi-day, self-guided and self-supported mountain adventure , the epic Kokopelli trail, which extends from Fruita, CO to Moab, UT.
I will ride on my “Jersey Devil” 29er bike (manufactured by Van Dessel, a boutique shop from Mandham, NJ). I will carry a Spinner 3 Pro backpack that will contain water (up to 3L), food, spare parts etc. This pack is of the highest quality and it’s produced by an Israeli outdoor company – Source.
Here you can see my bike and the backpack ready-to-go prior to last Sunday’s training ride:
and here they are in action:
P.S. – In the background you can see Harper’s head, a training partner often referred to as “esteemed colleague”. Harper is a Hungarian Vizsla with endless esteem and human like compassion. More on this in another post…
My name is Gili Torovezky. I was born and raised in Haifa, Israel, and I’ve lived in NJ, US, for the past 11 years.
A father (to adorable twin girls), a husband (to a lovely wife and care giving woman), a friend (hope good to many), a sibling (to two fine sisters), a cousin (to many), an uncle (to two long distance nieces) and above all, focus on the important things in life: modesty, perspective, success, happiness, values.
My passion is the outdoor or anything that takes my heart to go above 120 BPM.
