Gear I’m Starting with on the AT 2017

For all the people wondering what I’ll be taking with me initially on the AT, maybe 4 plus my mom, this is the post for you.  Since I got a GoPro and I’m very lazy I decided to make a video for my gear list.  See below.  All things considered my base weight is going to be about 17-18lbs.  I know there is room for improvement but I am not trying to be super, ultra, crazy light.  I have used all the gear in my video and intend to at least start with all of it.  If you have any questions, comments, or concerns let me know below and ill make an attempt to answer your question or calm your nerves about me not carrying an fully automatic assault rifle to protect myself.

    Chris…The sound on your video was no good. I wish it was good enough to understand. Ed
