Gear

A lot of people have been very helpful, directly and indirectly (through blogs, reviews, providing advice, etc. ) as I prepared my gear list. So much so that in the spirit of sharing and giving back, I thought I would post a list of the gear I will be starting the trail with, in the hope that it may be useful to others as they plan their Adventure. As the date approaches, and certainly post hike, I will update the list as well as provide feedback in terms of what worked well, and more importantly, what didn’t.
