Expedition Gear – A Resource For All Hikers, Backpackers, Outdoorsmen, Adventurists, Expeditioners, -rainism

Sports-and-Recreation Outdoorsmen and adventurists alike are always on the look out for new equipment that they can snatch up. No wonder; their hobby is so dangerous that they need to use any gear that they can to reduce their chances of getting hurt out there and to make their lives a little bit easier. As many of us know logging is the second to most hazardous job in the USA. What is the first you ask? Well, it’s fishing. Outdoorsmen happen to be fishermen and loggers too, in different ways. You might be thinking, "Well I’m an outdoorsman too and I do not cut trees down or fish." I guess I should have elaborated on my definition of adventurist, outdoorsman, or expeditioner which I frequently refer to. To me, these three names depict people who enjoy not hiking for a mile on a trail within a metro city, but those who drive/boat/fly for hours out to some of the most wild areas that they can come up with to find themselves completely immersed into nature. My point is then that a real outdoorsman, adventurist, or expeditioner who goes to very remote areas will actually need to be able to catch fish occasionally and cut trees down to supply firewood. With that in mind, consider just how perilous our hobby is. We are doing things that are declared to be some of the most dangerous jobs in the United States. On top of all this, we are far away from any help and can rely only on ourselves and our gear. Being an adventurist myself, one of my goals when looking for a place to go is the traffic, or the amount of people, that the place receives. I don’t enjoy very populated trails or popular tourism destinations. If I can go to a place where several to no people visit annually, that is where I’m going to go. The previous was mostly my perception of an outdoorsman. The term "adventurist" builds on the definition of an outdoorsman, adding a more action-oriented aspect to it. An outdoorsman might simply like to go to the forest to enjoy it. An adventurist would seek out some thrills or activities within the wilderness. This term is a way of describing one who has a more defined interest or goal in "the great outdoors". One other word that I keep on using to depict people like myself is "expeditioner". I believe that expeditioners are not only outdoorsmen who enjoy nature and serenity; they are not only adventurists who enjoy certain activities in nature; they are also campers and travelers, who may spend days, weeks, months or even years out in the wilderness. A famous expeditioners on the internet is a Finnish man Lars Monsen. He is known for having gone on 10 expeditions, spanning a total of more than 6 years. One of his longest trips was crossing northern Canada over an almost three year period. You better believe that the gear he was hauling throughout his trip was worth thousands of dollars. Maybe if he didn’t have the quality equipment, he would not even have survived. Actually, I shouldn’t have said that he was hauling his gear; he was carrying it. The reason why I make this correction is because good quality ex[edition equipment is usually very light, which brings me to my next point. A very considerable thing to consider when choosing gear for your trekking needs is weight. Indeed, it’s cool to have a machete with you as well as numerous knives and an axe. However, do you really need that machete in a northern boreal forest? Cooking in cast-iron pots is romantic, but perhaps you want to sacrifice that for a pot made of titanium that weighs 5 pounds lighter. Weight is a very essential aspect to consider, and there is a flourishing market for light or "lite" woods equipment for an extremely reason.
