  • First Light Guide Service
    The son of a Navy officer, Mike Ainsworth spent much of his childhood island-hopping across the South Pacific. Regardless of the shore on which he landed, the budding fisherman celebrated the opportunity to test its surrounding waters for fish. Now, Ainsworth shares his passion and expertise for fishing on his guided trips. He tailors expeditions for beginners—teaching tricky maneuvers such as fly-casting and testing fish’s ability to grant wishes—and whisking groups to the best fishing spots in Washington State in his stable Hyde Professional Series drift boats. Over the years, Ainsworth has helped tykes reel in fish that matched their height and watched amazed as a 78-year-old guest singlehandedly reeled in a 4-foot-long king salmon. Despite his own quest to mark off elusive prey from his personal fishing list, Ainsworth maintains that his favorite part of his fishing expeditions is the look on guests' faces when they reel in their very first catches, a moment he often captures on film.

  • Survivor Mud Run
    The roughly 5-kilometer Survivor Mud Run challenges athletes from around the country with 20 mud-soaked obstacles, including monkey bars, tire courses, giant slip 'n' slides, and net climbs. A team of licensed contractors builds all the obstacles, ensuring stability throughout. The dirt-drenched course allows participants to put their stamina, physical fitness, and mental determination to the test in a much more fun and safer way than challenging a Central African chimpanzee to a staring contest. Adrenaline and sheer force of will boost runners over walls and beneath low-slung wires in the mud-filled trenches, leading them to the finish line where a post-competition party awaits with beer, music, and food. After each race, announcers honor the top three male and female participants in each age division.

  • Icon Cellars
    Jim Garner's journey to becoming a winemaker and winery owner began with a gift. He worked in the biotech industry, and his employer moved him from California to Washington. In order to allay his fears that he'd no longer have access to good wine, his new team put together a basket of bottles from local wineries for him to enjoy. He was so impressed by one cabernet from Pleasant Hill Cellars that, when the opportunity presented itself, he went to meet the maker. Jim became friends with the winery's owner, then a part-time helper, then a full-time team member. He eventually founded his own winery, Icon Cellars, where he continues the tradition of making small batches of carefully crafted wines and pairing them with fine food, fine art, and fine music.
