What's a personal hiking gear chat?
And why would you want one?
A personalized hiking gear chat may be just the ticket if:
What I recommend will depend on whether you want to use the gear again (the long view), or will be donating it to a second hand store when you get back from your trip (the short view).
We' can also talk about your comfort set points, and how much money you're willing to invest in the gear.
And if you have questions that range beyond picking the best gear, we can chat about that, too! Recently, I've "met" hikers who were wondering about these topics:
The advantages of a gear chat before you purchase hiking gear:
I've had female hikers apologize for asking "stupid" or "basic" questions.
If unanswered questions are holding you back from hiking, ASK!!!
Don't waste any more trail time sitting on the sidelines, especially with boots that don't' fit.
And please don't throw your hard earned money at gear that just won't work for you.
Give up "hope" shopping ("I hope this works!") and replace it with facts.
Let's set up a hiking gear chat to get your questions answered and the best gear into your trail time.
You select the date and the length of the conversation, and I'll do the leg work (small hiking joke) to get ready for you.
By the end of our time together, you'll be ready to make a selection based on facts, not just guess work or wishful thinking.
And you can follow up the phone call with additional questions via email, if you run into trouble making a final selection.
One more option: If you live in the Seattle area, you and I could have our hiking gear chat in the outdoor gear store of your choice.
Great hiking gear can make or break your dayhikes, so it makes sense to invest a little time into getting it just right.
Sounds like just what you need to do before your next (or first) backpacking trip?
Or when you're just getting started as a dayhiker?
Then what are you waiting for?
