The Things That Matter

This Thanksgiving, take the time to slow down and reflect upon the small moments.

Everything moves quickly this time of year. Crisp fall days fade to a winter white before the leaves even hit the ground, and the hunting seasons for which we’ve waited are here and gone in the blink of an eye. The holidays that bring us together serve as a welcome change of pace, forcing us to slow down and give thought to the things that matter most—family, friends and time spent outdoors.

This Thanksgiving, we encourage you to join us in reflecting upon the small moments. Revel in that first pour of hot coffee from a dented, old thermos on a cold morning in the whitetail woods. Bottle that feeling you get when a young bird dog puts it all together for the first time, and take a swig of patience when he blows up the next opportunity. And put yourself in a position to experience the better-than-your-own satisfaction that comes from helping a friend or child punch their first tag. These are the moments worth remembering.

From all of us here at onX, thank you for giving us the opportunity to do the work we love and share an office with coworkers that become friends while we build a product we’re proud of. It means the world to us, and we’re immensely grateful for your support. We couldn’t do it without you.
