There’s a local park built over 110 years ago that once featured the tallest natural flag pole in the U.S. That flag pole, formed by a limbed red cedar tree and dedicated on Flag Day, June 14, 1907, toppled in a fierce windstorm 55 years ago, but the park still remains intact thanks to local stewards.
Today, Fairhaven Park consists of 16 acres of multi purpose fields, basketball and tennis courts, playgrounds, splash park and over 59 varieties of trees in an area deemed the “Chuckanut Community Forest.”
And that’s where Trayvax comes in. The Chuckanut Community Forest features a series of trails and hidden ponds. Unfortunately, some of these trails have been constructed in fragile wetlands, so an organization called Recreation Northwest decided to step up and do something about it by focusing on a trail relocation project. The new trail will be 400 feet long including an elevated wetland boardwalk crossing to limit impact on this fragile habitat and improve public access.
We sponsored a work party in conjunction with Recreation Northwest a few weeks back to get cracking on this project. Mark brought his new Onewheel to help deliver mulch. Talk about innovation!
I brought the whole family out. The boys decided to dress up as ninjas. I got a solid 45 minutes of work out of those guys before they started karate chopping each other. Not bad for those dudes.
Kevin and Ray timed the blackberry removal perfectly. The berries were ripe and ready hence the smiles. If you’re going to be removing blackberries, you should get to enjoy some of the sweet goodness at the very least.
We even brought our company mascot Zedd along. He did a great job of “supervising.”
All in all, we had a great time sponsoring this work party. With over a dozen volunteers present, we were able to make an impact and help support stewardship work in Fairhaven Park.

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) blocking refers to products that protect your cards that have RFID tags. Modern-day credit cards, also known as "smart cards," have an RFID chip inside of them to make transactions faster. Who likes waiting in line anyways?
All RFID blocking wallets range in terms of their protection. What determines the RFID protection level is the materials used on the wallet. Steel and aluminum materials will have the highest form of protection against data theft—for example, our Armored Summit Wallet offers a 95% protection rate against data fraud. Our ultra-thin steel wallet can protect up to eight cards at once.
What do I do with the stuff in my old bulky wallet?
“Woah, this feels great in my hand.”
Loading up a brand new, high quality Trayvax wallet for the first time comes with some moments of relief as well as unknown beginnings. The first step to converting to a minimalist wallet is locking in your everyday carry.
At first, you may feel slightly vulnerable. If you have been carrying around a bulky wallet for the past ten years, you might feel like “something is missing”. The panic thought of “where is my wallet!?”
Do not fret, soon you will love the quick access card slots, the effective money clip and sleek design of an everyday carry that feels good in your hand. And most importantly in your front pocket.
