Vermont – Gear That Worked, Gear That Didn’t…

So this is a quick recap of the gear that worked well for me in Vermont and gear that didn’t live up to it’s promise….

Gear That Worked:

  • GermX: 62% ethyl alcohol suspended in a gel. Awesome for sanitizing your hands before taking your contacts out in your tent!
  • Campsuds: A nice biodegradable detergent you can use on your hands, hair, dishes, whatever without worry.
  • Gerber Entrenching Tool: Great for burying the sh!t your neighbor’s dog takes next to your tent first thing in the morning!
  • Folbot Cooper: Great, great boat. Outpaddled and outshined every hardshell kayak I encountered on Lake Champlain.
  • Sea2Summit Cordura Stuff Sacks: Great for organizing all those small but essential items and tools!
  • Weber Portable Charcoal Grill: Fantastic for car camping! So much easier than cooking over the fire or dealing with a gas grill!
  • Harmony GPS Drybag: Great at protecting my GPS receiver while allowing easy access to the controls at anytime.
  • Nalgene 1L Bottle: Duuuuuh!

Gear That Wasn’t So Great:

  • TrailSling: Great to sit on…if your only seating option is jagged rocks for miles around!
  • Creekside Hammock: Not bad, but way too easy to knock the fabric sheet off the hangers and fall out!
