This Nerd's Approach to Gear and Going Light
IntroSo, if you have known me for any length of time, you are well aware that I am a nerd. I keep a running tally in mind of mostly inconsequential things, like how many bowls we have in the kitchen. I have read hundreds of thousands of pages worth of sci-fi and fantasy books. I literally named my dog after a Jedi. You' re welcome
This idea is not a novel one, not by a long shot. Many people were doing this long before I got around to it. Not only that, but my brother sent me his gear spreadsheet as a template. I have made some serious changes, but for the most part, it is his design. Yes, he is a nerd too. He keeps it under wraps better than I do. While the concept is simple, this list is much more than a plain catalog of my tents and water bottles.
