Guy Not At OR Expands Team, Beefs Up Coverage

Exciting, thrilling, chilling press release from the Guy(s) Not At OR. You'll laugh, you'll cry. But not over this.


Nevada City, CA/Puyallup, WA – The Guy Not At OR (GNAOR) has expanded operations and taken on another Guy. Focusing on Not At OR’s goals, both Guys will offer insightful, detailed, and oh-so-important commentary on the goings on and products seen Not At OR.

To avoid internal and external confusion, The Guy will now be known collectively as The Guy(s). Individual Guys will be called by their super-secret code names: G1 and G2.

 Oops. Formerly super-secret.

“It was important that we have names that sounded cool,” says G1. “G1. G2. Makes us sound like jets. Jets are totally, totally cool - like that one in the picture. Awesome. I'm a jet - cool - DUDE! We're JETS!”

G2 was napping – in his own bed; GNAORHQ is quick to point out – and unavailable for pithy comments.

G2’s background is in actual fact-based editorial and reporting. This will contrast with G1’s marketing-based bulls**t. But don’t expect G2 to shy away from GNAOR’s purpose, raison d etre, and vision – banal, snarky pieces on the oh-so-important of the goings on and products seen Not At OR.

The Guy(s) goal in beefing up coverage is to beef up coverage. “We like beef,” commented the recently awake G2. “Besides, saying ‘pork up our coverage’ sounds kind of gross for some reason.”

The Guy(s) Not At OR are renowned for their trend-bucking, courageous choice to skip OR in order to run errands, frolic in the snow, play with their respective dogs, have two drinks in front of them at the same time, and pee in their own toilets.It’s not all beer and skittles - they will face innumerable hardships, including not eating at restaurants with “iguana” in their name. And, if they happen to leave their wet towels on the bathroom floor, they will not be picked up and washed by attentive hotel staffers. And Mrs. The Guy will be pissed.

“The towel thing – harsh,” says G1. “I may just have to skip showering altogether while I’m not at OR.”

About The Guy(s) and Not At OR: Based in the Sierra Foothills northwest of Lake Tahoe, and in the shadow of Mt. Rainier in Puyallup (say it out loud – Puyallup – it’s fun), WA, The Guy(s) are a freelance copy writer and a freelance outdoor reporter who’ll pretty much write anything for money. Founded in January 2010, Not At OR is just that. They Guy(s) do not hate the real OR. They just like their own beds. Learn more about The Guy(s) by clicking here.
