I still love hiking and camping, don't get me wrong. We went camping in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan not long ago, simply because we missed the woods. But what I didn't miss was thinking about gear lists or trying to plan out a food bag.
Until today! Two of our very good friends from the trail finished their thru-hike last week (congrats, Bearcub and Guy Line!!) and we had lunch with them today. It was so great to see them and I love that we all live in the same city now. We have one other Chicago friend who should be finishing his thru soon (good luck, Waldo!) and once we are all back in the city it will be so nice to have them nearby.
Reminiscing about the trail and sharing so many laughs inspired me to revisit my AT gear lists. Basically this is my long-winded way of telling you that I went back and reviewed the gear lists that I put together before our hike and updated them to include notes. I added comments about how the gear worked and whether or not I would use it again. I hope you find interesting and maybe even useful in planning your own gear list!
