For many years we’ve collected a vast amount of gear for our field work and adventures near and far. We realized we don’t use half of it. You don’t need a lot of fancy things to have a grand adventure. Keep it simple and celebrate the little things in life that will help guide, inspire and support you on your journey. The bigger picture: be safe, be mindful, Leave No Trace, look, listen, smell, feel. You are an important part of the natural world. Go play outside! These are a few of our favorite things for trails and adventures.
