Greetings from our Winston Salem Store
The weekend of March 24th through 26th kicks off the 40th Anniversary celebrations of the MST with an expanded annual meeting, the Gathering of Friends, in Elkin, a friendly trail town between Stone and Pilot Mountain state parks that has enthusiastically embraced the MST.
The weekend will officially begin Friday evening with a Hiking Boot Gala – an evening of fellowship and recognition of the accomplishments of the first 40 years.
On Saturday, the annual membership meeting will focus on where the trail is headed and goals for the next 40 years. National Geographic Adventurer of the Year Jennifer Pharr Davis, who will hike the MST in 2017, will be the keynote speaker.
Throughout the weekend – from Friday through mid-day Sunday – the Elkin Valley Trail Association is organizing a program of great Trail & Town Excursions – from hikes to mountain biking, from winery tours to paddling on the Yadkin – to help attendees explore the great MST sections in the area. Many of these will start mid-day on Friday, so plan to head up early to explore the area.

THE LOST CITY OF Z
The spellbinding latest work from director James Gray (The Immigrant), The Lost City of Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization. An epically scaled tale of courage and passion, the film also features Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller and is a stirring account of a conflicted adventurer driven to the verge of obsession.

Winston-Salem is heaven for the avid outdoorsman. We have both lakes and rivers, allowing for a variety of daytime trips, from paddling the frisky Dan River to fishing right in town at Salem Lake. Our incredible staff members cite Hanging Rock State Park as one of their favorite places in the country for climbing and exploring. There are seven miles of natural trail way around Salem Lake, and Pilot Mountain and the Sauratown Trail are great options if you have a bit more time.
We here at Great Outdoor Provision Co. want you to take advantage of everything Winston-Salem has to offer – even the things you don’t know about yet! Our manager, Darren Schwartz, and his staff have worn paths in many of the trails around Winston-Salem, from the most popular to the obscure, can’t-even-find-it-on-the-Internet places. We don’t mean for these best-kept secrets to stay secret, though! At our store, we’re more than happy to share all of the knowledge we’ve gathered with you.
Throughout our adventures, we have spent time testing several of the products in our store. You may not realize that the backpack that feels great when you wear it for five minutes in the store will rub your sides raw after eight hours on the trail. That’s where we come in. We’ll tell you what has worked for us and what hasn’t, so you can make an educated decision about your outdoor purchases. Come check out our store at the Thruway Shopping Center – we can’t wait to see you!
