About Patagonia Dad

Who are You?

My name is Scott.

  • I’m from California
  • I grew up camping and loving the outdoors…rarely wanting to wear a shirt or shoes
  • I’m Dad now
  • I still love the outdoors…and I still wish I could go around without a shirt or shoes (but I don’t)

Aside from the above, I write/record/create because I want to share my experiences with you and my kids. I plan to leave the world a better place than it was before I got here…and I think most people do too. 

I hope you follow along or join in the adventure.

What Inspired the Name?

I actually got the inspiration from a Romper.com article and I think the below excerpt sums it up well:

Patagonia Dad, as we might call him, is absolutely everywhere. He’s at your child’s preschool, cropping up in breweries, roaming the dried goods aisle for trek mix ingredients, in the feeds of photographers like the woodsy Annie Hock. Check under your couch — like mice, he knows how to maneuver his body through tight spaces because he once watched a spelunking documentary. One glance and you *know* that when he gets home he will stuff his down vest into a closet full of more down vests, each a relic of past forays into the nearest REI and a symbol of the future trips he will take to collect his dividend. He may not have an opinion on diaper brands, but he knows the technical specs for all Patagonia jackets and fleeces dating back to 1995, and his blood is 100 percent traceable down.

I highly encourage you to read it…it’ll make you smile.

What is This Site About?

Nothing and everything! Honestly, this is just my own corner of the internet to create, inspire, share, and reflect. I’ve had a couple websites in the past so I’ve learned some lessons from them and will do what I can to consistently post here. You will see me blogging about vlogging, which is another thing I took up. Thus, sometimes a post will be one of my new or old vlogs, or sometimes I’ll be able to take some time to write something up.

Either way, I believe that if you’ve made it this far you should probably follow along. There’s a lot more to come…:)
