Gear

My gear (and Jared’s too) is always undergoing transformations. Changes are ususally upgrades to lighter or better or more seasonally appropriate items. Right now, it’s late summer 2015 and my gear has evolved through the PCT 2014, Wonderland 2014, Long Trail 2015, and Wonderland Trail 2015. This what I carry.
