Dave Ertel and Nancy Peterson

I hail from:
Nancy – Pendleton, Oregon
Dave – Carson City Nevada

I pay my bills by:
Draining our retirement accounts, hoping to run out of breath and money at roughly the same time.

I never leave home without:
Home? What’s that? We just finished riding Alaska to Argentina – home is where you pitch the tent.

My three favorite pieces of Kitsbow kit are:
Nancy’s Pendelton wool Icon shirt
Dave’s Master Link shorts

I love them because:
How can a Pendleton girl go past an Icon shirt?
First “mountain” shorts found that actually fit right.

The closest I’ve been to complete and profound enlightenment was:
Riding slowly past a recently awoken cinnamon grizzly bear and not getting chased (or eaten) on the AlCan Highway in the Yukon.


Standing on Main Street, Hill End, Australia while two rival local mobs of kangaroos chased each other all over the place, oblivious to us being there...

My favorite place to ride (that I am willing to tell you about) is:
Dave – 1,200 km Carratera Austral in Patagonia – stunningly remote and beautiful

Nancy –Peruvian Andes – how can you not love day after day of 40k climbs on a loaded touring bike
