What to take
Ryan and Steve discuss the working gear list for the hike, everything from the big three to toe socks. As ironic as it might be, Ryan has been away from his gear for the last six months abroad. With this in mind, there will be a mixture of tested older gear and brand new gear all coming together for the first day at Springer Mountain in just a few weeks. Taking a page from Bruce "RTK" Matson's book, there will even be a "winter supplement" for the first section of the hike until Ryan gets to his home state of Virginia.
