Your brain is gear: 21 questions with Gear Junkie

Last month I left the Republic for a fun afternoon with the Gear Junkie crew in Denver. Before recording a 45-minute podcast interview, they sat me down for 21 quick questions.

    How many unread emails in your inbox? I’ve emailed questions to you a few times and you always replied in a timely manor. Much appreciated, thank you!

    Pet peeve? I was answering the questions in my head and we came up with the same answer on both accounts. Do people think there is some kind of poo fairy that comes along and picks up pet waste?

    My question to you would have been if you had the opportunity to do a survival reality TV show on Animal Planet would you and what would you call it?

    Bonus question: If you were asked to sponsored a running shoe would you call it The Skurka Oden?

      I’m contacted monthly by production studios, inquiring about my interest in various reality shows. Three conclusions:

      1. I don’t have a big enough personality to fill a screen.
      2. A very small fraction of shows ever go into production, so it probably won’t lead to anything.
      3. I’d rather guide trips, when I can really be myself, than be on TV, where that won’t be the case as much.

    Great stuff Andrew! I’d disagree with #1 above, but I’m glad you’d rather guide trips. Keep up the great work!

    When are you finally going to break down and get in the GYM and start lifting?
