Howdy everyone, just to keep everyone up to date the social media team at Gossamer Gear will be out of the office Saturday June 2nd through Monday June 4th. We bring our backpacks to the beautiful Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina. We've been lucky enough to catch a guided trip with Andrew Skurka, and we are very excited!

We will be posting a trip report next week to let you know how it went. We can say that the trip prep for the trip has been stellar. The hiking group was joined together via google groups to form a virtual planning team. We have covered gear, food and logistics at a level that professionals like Andrew Skurka and Alan Dixon can. We look forward to sharing some of what we learned in our tips section over the next few weeks.

If you are interested in taking your own trip with Andrew Skurka, check out his guided trips on his website. We would heartily recommend it!
