It's been almost a year since my GPT adventure, but I finally made a video showing the gear that we used during our 2017-18 packrafting trip. Enjoy!
My long-term review of the DIY Packrafts that I built late in 2017 and used along the Greater Patagonia Trail.
From December 2017 to April 2018, I hiked, packrafted, and lived out of a KS Ultralight R-50 backpack. After more than 1,000 miles of use, here is my review.
A Q&A with Thrupack's founder Paul Thomas. Paul shares his upstart journey as well as what it's like to run a cottage company.
My review of Thrupack, a small fanny pack manufacturer from Virginia specializing in high-volume fanny packs with many options and features.
My dad recently ordered a pair of trekking poles in preparation for our upcoming trip to Peru. He told me he was going to take his poles out for a test drive, so I quickly gave him a couple pointers on how to utilize them. Here are three of those tips.
One of my only complaints about my backpack is that I wish the pockets were larger so that I could store more snacks.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so I decided to try and make a bottom pocket of my own.
The day after finishing Te Araroa, I sat down to reflect about my gear. My goal was to share what worked, what didn’t, and how everything fit together. I hope this video helps anyone planning to walk Te Araroa.
In September 2016, I ordered a KS 4 (the SUL version of the KS 40). There aren't many reviews in English on KS Ultralight, so after 2,000 miles of use I felt compelled to review my "do everything" pack.
