Hal Russell — 66 year old living legend, is close to putting down his Third Tour Divide. 2,745 miles of no let-ups, not for one minute. If the freeze doesn’t get you, the swarm of mosquitoes will. 32 days, 4 hours, 23 minutes of gruel for this man who beds-down in the quiet town of Osceola, Missouri.
His neighbor, Evening Shade Farms, maker of some unusual Natural & Organic Body Products, did more than just tag along for the ride. BUGZee, a natural insect repellent, more than held its own against 40% DEET. The difference…BUGZee is humanoid safe and absolutely no problem to the environment.
And then there’s THE BOMB LiveWire Organic Body Powder which gets to the seat of all problems, powdered silk is one way to describe it, another way is tamed electricity. Put together, THE BOMB Lip Balm that explodes and ignites like no other, and THE BOMB Sun & Wind Body Balm for taking down those plagues of rough spots.
Hal Russell, a no-nonsense man of few words, who has logged in more than his share of off-road bikepacking, always has room for safe products that do the job. Hal’s dream ride: To cycle across Vietnam once again, only this time on his Trek.
