Mike Smeaton (Griz)
I have been an outdoor adventurer since I was a boy scout & sea explorer in my teens, buckskinner & fur trade re-enactor in my 20's, canoe camper and backpacker since my 30's and many, many family camping trips.
I love GEAR! I am a firm believer in having the right gear to match the trip. I have lived out of a Eureka 2 person tent for 3 months in the Rockies and a wall tent for 6 weeks in the eastern high desert of Oregon. I know what to look for in quality gear and I love sharing that with others so they can have great experiences in the wilderness.
The right tent, backpack, sleep system, pad, stove and cook set for the trip can make all the difference in having an awesome experience. I would love to help you find just the right gear for your trip.
