How do I rent a gear pack:
Simply click on the desired gear pack option when filling out your online registration.

How do I get my gear pack:
When you arrive for your hike all of your gear pack items will be waiting for you. You will have ample time to go over gear and pack before your journey begins.

What if I break or damage an item:
While we ask that you take good care of the items entrusted to you, we do not ask you to replace or repair any broken items.

Can't I just shop for all this myself?
You are completely free to order and purchase the needed gear and collect items yourself. You are not required to choose a gear pack. We simply provide this service as an extra option.

Is this everything I need?
The items provided in the gear packs are to help with your overall gear list. You will also need other items (Example: Sleeping bag, clothes, First-aid kit, and much more). See Gear and Supply List.
Do I get to keep gear or supplies:
Designed to save hikers money by sharing, all unused supplies and all gear is to be returned back to the camp at the end of your trip.

Is there a discount if I only need some of the items in the gear pack:
The gear pack prices stay the same even if you do not need one or more of the items listed. Notify us if there is a item that you will not need. This will reduce work and possible extra weight.

***Special Note:
Some of your gear pack items may be assigned to you AND your hiking partner to share in order to save weight while carrying your load all week. (Example: Tent or Stove)

Batteries are NOT included for headlamp. You will need to furnish 3 AAA batteries.
