OA Trip Leader Sophie Jacobs Parades Like a Pro



On the trail or in the street, Outdoor Adventures Trip Leaders are prepared for any challenge in any weather. Recently, Trip Leader Sophie Jacobs was spotted by a Nola.com photographer as she marched in the Krewe of Chewbacchus. Here’s what we learned:

Hydration is Important

Sophie has not one, but TWO beverages at her disposal thanks to that sweet repurposed bicycle cup holder.

Wear Appropriate Footwear

Here Sophie has opted for a classic white sneaker that’s comfortable, broken in, and already seen some gutter grime.Bring on the parade miles!

Layer Up

Fickle weather, plenty of standing around AND a whole lot of walking can make dressing for Carnival a challenge. Sophie’s smart solution: layering for changing temps and activity levels.

Take it With You

Sophie’s waist pack is the perfect minimalist option for Mardi Gras– it carries her essentials without excess bulk.
