making sense of it all - hiking gear

Posted at — Mar 3, 2017

I’ve been organizing my hiking gear and making some progress. I have decided to categorize my stuff into 3 groups. Active, Inactive, and Junk. While I feel bad about the wasted money in the Junk pile I need to find some AT/FT sort of way to give it away.The definition of “active” is the gear I would throw into a pack and got for a hike. There should be sufficient calories to complete a section hike. This pile is somewhat active and somewhat inactive and some of it is basic supplies that should be considered inactive.Of note: my two sea to summit sleeping bag liners are now in the junk pile. And the 2gosystems bivy and two silk liners has been moved from the junk to active buckets.
