Hell Yeah Tour! On the Road

The Tour Stops in the Queen City

Charlotte holds a special place in the hearts of the Mountain Khakis family and friends: it’s where the magic happens for the eastern US. Home to the first shop to carry our pants and the first to sell a pair of pants and a constant advocate for our shared natural and recreational areas, Charlotte is a town that continues to be a foundation for our company. As the Charlottean community is an integral part of our MK culture, we wanted to give a special shout out to the retailers and organizations that collectively help keep us rolling.

The store I mentioned earlier is Jesse Brown’s Outdoors. In 2003, they were the first store to sell a pair of Mountain Khakis off shelf and have been a leader for us ever since. Naturally, we wanted to bring the tour to the place where it all started. Bill stepped up the game and played a card game with customers. The long short is that depending on the card drawn, he gave away 30-50% off on MK garb!

Another important stop in Charlotte was working with the Tarheel Trailblazers, a local authority and foundational organization for the Charlotte area. Founded in 1990, the IMBA member focuses on creating and maintaining mountain bike trails in and around the Charlotte area. Park Road Park was the area of interest are together, the Trailblazers with Mountain Khakis rallied 35 volunteers to create a new trail, reinforce a land bridge, and clean up existing trail. After a productive work evening, we celebrated with some craft brew from SweetWater Brewing.

Howdy, my name is Garrett Dickson (a.k.a “G Money”) and I’m your Hell Yeah! Tour Coordinator. I’m a Colorado boy, born and bred. My greatest joy is to be in the natural world living life on my skis, on my bike, or with a paddle in my hands. For the next several months I’ll be traveling the country with Mountain Khakis, celebrating the intersection of outdoor x craft beer culture with you – the MK tribe!

Hell Yeah!
