In October 2014, I kayaked the Lower Columbia River Water Trail. During seven days of paddling, we traveled 145 miles through rain, wind, sunshine, and hail. We learned a lot, and I’ve compiled this list to share the gear we used and the gear we wished we’d had.
In spring 2015, I led a trek in the Khumbu Valley of northeastern Nepal. This is the equipment list I compiled to help my team prepare for our high-altitude adventure.
