Dylan is a frequent visitor at Farmer & Co. in Unionville, Pennsylvania, where PennBilt’s quant office is based. “Farmer” is a bit of a communal hub, serving exceptional coffee and farm-to-table treats, attracting a bit of a creative crowd. As it would happen, Bill’s wife Lisa knew Dylan through the photography world and made the introduction. One day in the spring, Bill and Dylan struck on a conversation regarding Dylan’s summer plans to backpack in Europe and run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.
Traditional clothing for The Running of the Bulls required a white shirt and light-colored pants, offset by a flaming red scarf. Historically, khakis were used as camouflage - so what better way to blend in to the sea of half crazed men running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain? A pair of the stone Plainsman, equipped with just the right amount of stretch, seemed to fit the bill perfectly.

Bill’s wife Lisa, who manages the marketing for PennBilt, sat down with Dylan to interview him for this article, and after the conversation unfolded - we felt that the true spirit of his adventure is best captured through Dylan’s voice.
So grab your favorite libation, get comfortable, and enjoy this first hand experience this adrenaline pumping account of Pamplona's Running of the Bulls (Dylan Francis style)!
