The Gear Head’s Dilemma

Whether you want to admit it or not, this may or may not have hap­pened to you. Newbs rid­ing Seg­ways aren’t the only ones scram­bling for gear min­utes before a trip. To be fair, gear not only keeps us dry, it saves lives. In some cas­es, you’re not even allowed to access cer­tain ter­rain with­out the right gear (like in the sidecountry).

It’d be ill-advised to rush into the back­coun­try with­out some plan­ning, but at some point in every enthu­si­ast’s life, you just need to pack the essen­tials and GTFO. Hope­ful­ly you’ll have more than 15 min­utes of sun­light when you do so.
