In the June 2012 issue of Geographical, the official magazine of the Royal Geographical Society (IBG), I wrote about the gear I used on my Alaska-Yukon Expedition. But the article is not a colorless evaluation — the model for this “Essential Gear” series is to embed a discussion about gear within a story narrative, which makes it a more engaging read. And since I generally struggle to get excited about gear, I also tried to expand the scope of the article to include topics that excite me more — like skills, Nature, and humility.
Have a read and let me know what you think. Is anyone now even more disappointed that I probably won’t get around to writing a book about this adventure?
