PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Combine a life-long friendship, a love for the outdoors, and a desire to help people get outside and you get one of Portland’s most recognizable businesses.

For 6 Questions this week, Ian Costello talks to Knudson and Heykamp about how they became friends, their adventures along the way and their desire to continue to be part of the Portland story.
