This is not the gear you are looking for…
Or maybe it is…. I think gear is so personalized. But I get asked a lot about what I’m bringing, so here it is! Anyone else hate how much they love these gear photos?
-Western Mountaineering Tioga bag liner (you know to try to keep the massive stink of my body away from my quilt.)
Sleeping in the backcountry is the bane of my outdoor existence… so I carry a little more sleep weight than some.
–REI wicking underwear (2 pairs)
-Beyond yoga bike shorts (you know for the massive chaffing I am expecting)
–Darn Tough Socks (2 pairs)
–Hoka Speedgoat trail runners (non waterproof)
-North Face rain pants
-Hand made Dyneema rain gloves
-spoonula (the best!! – you can scrape out your bowl to make dishes easier!!!)
-Waterless wet wipes
-Dyneema food bag and bear hang string
-Lightload towel (1/2) for cleaning
–Platypus bag (2- 2 liter bags for desert section)
-Waterless wipes, wilderness wipes
–Kula Cloth pee rag (it’s not as gross as it sounds)
-Portable bidet (makes for a much cleaner backcountry)
-First aid kit
–Anker power bank, cords
-Misc. small Dyneema bags for small stuff
-Fanny pack (all the cool kids are doing it!)
-Umbrella for sun/rain
-Laminated permits (PCT, CA fire)
-Whippet ice ax
– Bug spray for nor cal
-Considering waterproof socks depending on the final snow levels
Oh! And I got my first trail magic from two wonderful friends! Luxury foot/bum wipes and some fruity snacks!
So thats it, everything I need for 6 months outside … besides food, water, and my mind vice.
