To celebrate 36 years of Baggies, this print commemorates a 1968 California-to-Argentina van trip taken by Yvon Chouinard and a group of friends. This surfing/climbing "Viva Los Fun Hogs" trip was what inspired Yvon to name his new company Patagonia.
On the morning of July 16, 1968, Yvon Chouinard, Doug Tompkins, Lito Tejada-Flores and Dick Dorworth set out from Ventura, California, in a 1965 Ford Econoline van loaded with skis, surfboards and climbing gear.
While driving through Central America, they found some good surf spots and moderate swells in Panama.
While camping in Guatemala, the group woke up to soldiers bearing automatic weapons.
They skied down the Llaima Volcano near Temuco, Chile, but first put their arms in the smoke billowing out of the crater before making the descent.
The first time the group set eyes on the entire Fitz Roy massif, they agreed that Fitz Roy was the “undisputed king.” They eventually reached the summit after spending 31 days in snow caves.
From studying the varying colors of granite to admiring the shape of a plumeria blossom, we’ve always been inspired by the colors and patterns found in nature. This season, we looked back at our roots in climbing and surfing and found an abundance of sources
