Pre-Departure Gear Check

Idaho Pre-trip Gear Check

Idaho Pre-trip Gear Check

One of the rituals of preparing for a big trip is the gear check.  I have had the good ‘fortune’ of being on the receiving end of a ‘review’ by some legendary guides like Gary Scott and Jeff Evans.  As a result, the pack light concept has become fairly well engrained.  This represents everything we will carry for 4 days.  (see checklist here).

Upon hearing that we will be riding in the same bike kit for 4 days, my dear friend Bill provided some of the most sage and poignant advise I have ever heard: ‘just make sure you are up wind.’

Enjoy the Journey
