Whoa, where did the holidays go? Or for that matter, 2011? Happy New Year folks! We hope this message finds you well and prepared for another exciting year. If you are like most of us, it’s easy to create a list of new years resolutions that involve a variety of hopeful accomplishments involving the  great outdoors — whether it’s paddling a new local river, camping a never before visited national park or traversing a foreign country mountain range. Regardless of what you have up your sleeve, we want to wish you an outstanding and prosperous new year but before we call it a wrap, we want to thank you once again for an amazing 2011. This includes our customers, partners, vendors, families, friends and fans — each and every one of you. C’ya next year! – The ACK Family
