Planning and Organization: What’s in Your Summer Backpack?

Today’s episode is going to give you gear barn envy and if you are a Type A kind of person, you will love the way Jeff Thompson plans his summer camping trips. I'll give you a hint: lists, lists, and refined lists (based on experience). 

I don't know about you but it never fails; I ALWAYS forget something when I go on a trip. Once, that was the tent. Seems like a big thing to forget. We got to our campsite and looked at each other, wondering who had the tent and it was quickly apparent no one had it. No that's a shitshow if I've ever seen one. I hope today's episode of The Gear Show will stop that from happening.

Jeff is director at Idaho Panhandle Avalanche Center, a husband and a dad to a five year old girl. He makes a return visit on popular demand after he revealed what is in his backcountry ski pack earlier this year. He’ll share with us what he carries in his backpack and then we get into some fun stories on getting kids into, and psyched, on being outdoors.
