The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.

-Lao Tzu

Or in my case, the journey of 310 miles…   Last week feels like I walked my first mile on the trail.   Making the decision to go, working on a plan to get there, nerding out on gear excel grids – trying to make my load as light as possible and then getting all of this amazing stuff in the mail today!!!

This weekend I’ll be back on the trail after a 7 week break from hiking.  (I can’t believe it’s been that long!)  Along with hiking a new MN State Park, we’ll put the Big Agnes Flycreek UL1 up against the Hennessey Expedition A-sym hammock and see who wins the gear match!


Hope you are enjoying these last days of summer and if you aren’t on the trail, at least check out all of the crazy Labor Day gear sales happening this weekend!

Happy Trails!
