This past hike was quite an experience for me. First and foremost, I got to revisit the same section of trail in which my wife & I experienced our first true backpacking trip. As well, this time I got to take 2 of my buddies along, and guess what…it was their first hike along the Appalachian Trail as well! But, that is not all…on this trip I got to experience some new gear as well as hone in on some of my older gear…
So, now that the hike is over, I have written a short trip report and posted some videos and pictures. Next I wanted to do some video in which I simply talk about some of the gear. Just unload some of my thoughts on some of the pieces that stood out to me while on the trail.
I have 2 videos that are no doubt somewhat nerdy…nothing special…just me sitting at the table with some of my gear and rambling on. There is some gear that I have not mentioned in the videos that I plan to talk about in following videos, as well, some of the gear I will continue to elaborate on. So, for now, I hope that you have a moment to hang out for a bit and hear what I have to say. The only thing that I ask of you is to please keep in mind that these are my thoughts on how I feel about these items. I am not trying to push anything on anyone, not trying to tell anyone that they need to rush out and get a certain piece of gear because it is the best. Fact is, there is no perfect piece of gear. There are lots of options, and these are ones that seem to be the best for me.
That is all…please enjoy. 🙂
Thanks for your time!
