Blake Gibson

Growing up exploring and appreciating the outdoors, nature became an important part of my life. From rock climbing, to trail running, to fly fishing, I have always found nature to be captivating. Working at Ridge allows me to utilize my passions about the outdoors and Christian faith by connecting with people everyday on a spiritual and fulfilling level- while also equipping them to explore our beautiful Tennessee mountains!  

Spencer Terry

Hey guys I'm Spencer.  I've been at ridge for about a year.  It's an amazing place with amazing people.  I get to combine my love for the outdoors and my Christian beliefs with my job every single day.  Here we really are a family, and I can't think of a better place to call home.  Come enjoy the Ridge family.

Hello! I love that at Ridge Outfitters, I can openly express my faith in Jesus Christ.  Conversations with management, coworkers, and customers give me glimpses of the kingdom of God.  I also love that this community appreciates and explores creation, like I do. Hope to see you soon!

Kennedy Blair

I love working at Ridge because I get to help people do what they love; I get to help people find just the right gear to go out into the world and explore God’s beautiful creation. Ridge is like a family to me, and I'm so lucky to be apart of this wonderful community.

One Item I Will Never Hit The Trail Without

One Item I Will Never Hit The Trail Without

I have been on many trails and spent many a night in the woods.  I have used many types of gear and pride myself on always being prepared.  I am also a nut for DIY tips and tricks that you can make out of cheap supplies.  However, I was humbled the other day when a customer came into our Cleveland store.

Stories are a wonderful thing.  They relive the past, bring happiness, and often times never fail to make you laugh.  A story that seems to always come up is that of my 16th birthday.  My father surprised me with four day, father and son back country trip into the heart of the Appalachian Mountains.
