The Gear Show with Lisa Gerber
About This Show
Conversations with gear-obsessed individuals to give you, the active outdoors person, the knowledge to be more comfortable, have more fun and get better at something in the outdoors. It's more than specific gear and app recommendations, which we discuss but we also talk about pushing ourselves in the outdoors because we know it makes us better in our personal and professional lives. This means tackling fear, setting ourselves up for success, making ideas happen, adjusting when life takes us on a different path than our dreams.
There is no such thing as bad weather or a bad day, just bad gear.

9: Fighting Your Monkey Brain and a Primer in Backpacking
6 days ago
Sometimes we jump into something with such frenzy and ambition, we might not be properly prepared. We are in over our heads. It’s a theme many of us are familiar with, perhaps in our lives, perhaps from the news. Powder Matt Mosteller sets the stage for our conversation today by sharing a story of lofty teenage goals, finding himself in over his head and getting himself safely out of it. From this and many other experiences throughout his life, he helps us prevent our next shit show by giving us a full-on primer on everything you should consider for your first backpacking trip: conditioning for your trip, where to go, what kind of gear needs your consideration, personal health and safety and things to think about when you bring the kids and/or dogs along. Even if you aren’t planning a trip, it’s a good lesson on life.
