Dan Sedlacek, at 14, was inspired to seek out the PCT when he met a group of friendly thru-hikers. Years later, he and his brother tackled the 2600+ mile trail using gear they had made themselves. Here a second inspiration would hit, a desire to create a handmade gear company. Now, Dan runs Uphill Designs located in Seattle. He and Jason sat in the office one morning discussing the triumphs and travails of the Pacific Crest Trail and running a small business.
