Must Have Winter Hiking Gear – Kahtoola Microspikes
Kahtoola Microspikes (https://amzn.to/2sxM5WQ) are an essential piece of winter or wet weather hiking gear. Kahtoola Microspikes are a perfect balance between YaxTrax and Crampons proving a lightweight traction device that can be quickly put on and removed. Kahtoola’s can be worn over Trail Runners or standard hiking boots.
Kahtoola Microspikes are perfect for tackling Adirondack Mountains or any other North East challenge that involves snow and ice.
A little more about Nick, how we met, why we’re doing the PCT, and our initial thoughts on hiking it as a couple. Some of the challenges we’ll face and how we’ll cope.

ABOUT ME ————————————————————————
Californian traveling the world and living in New Zealand. Here to share adventures and give you tips about travel, culture, language, and life.
Crater Lake is a caldera lake in the western United States, located in south-central Oregon. It is the main feature of Crater Lake National Park and is famous for its deep blue color and water clarity. The lake partly fills a nearly 2,148-foot deep caldera that was formed around 7,700 years ago by the collapse of the volcano Mount Mazama. There are no rivers flowing into or out of the lake; the evaporation is compensated for by rain and snowfall at a rate such that the total amount of water is replaced every 250 years. At 1,943 feet, the lake is the deepest in the United States, and one of the deepest in the world.
Eating when backpacking is a must, and it requires a little knowledge as well. Carrying a lightweight cooking system when backpacking is essential as part of great backpacking experiences. There are various types of cooking systems out there, and it is imperative that you find what works for you. Today, I’ll show you what works for me, and maybe you can adopt some of it or all of it. The most important thing is that you find the system that will allow you to enjoy the outdoors!
Below is the list and links to the items I show on my video:

For all beginner backpackers, the fact that I have added all ounces is to try to go for the lightest weight possible without sacrificing the basics for cooking in the backcountry. When you have to carry everything in your backpack, every ounce counts. Heavy packs can ruin the experience for a new backpacker. I hope this helped you figure out what you like, and please comment below if you have any more suggestions 🙂
I hope you enjoy your time cooking in the backcountry. Happy Trails!
Note: Some items come in packages with multiple, so I divided the price per item in the bag and got the approximate cost per unit.

Backpacking into the mountains for 3 days with the hot tipi tent. Winter camping can be a great way to get away from the crowds and bug. Yes it’s a bit cold, but with proper preparations and gear, it can create memories that will last a lifetime!
