Earl Campbell uses Gossamer’s Trek poles

NFL Hall-of-Famer and legendary running back Earl Campbell with his custom Gossamer Gear Lightrek3 trekking poles.  Living in Austin has its perks.  Grant ran into Earl Campbell at a restaurant a few months back.  Like some other folks that need an aid to get around town, Earl was using a cane.  Grant offered to make a custom set of LT3′s for him.   Earl now prefers these to a cane and takes them everywhere he goes, including this year’s Super Bowl.

    That is so cool. When will custom colors be available to the mainstream? :-p

    All those great years of football for The Longhorns and The Oilers was pretty tough on a set of knees. Trekking poles are more comfortable and a lot more “hip”. Way to go Earl and Hook ‘em!
