Who is putting all this gear to the test?
I’m a 29 year old minimalist. So, with the ‘problem’ of not wanting to own a lot of things comes the task of weeding out the unnecessary things. That may include anything from low-quality things to extravagant items.
Over the past 5 years, I’ve been putting gear to the test as a Peace Corps volunteer in Cambodia, an English teacher in South Korea, a backpacker through Southeast Asia, a road-tripper and couchsurfer through the US, and as a camp assistant at a remote fishing camp in Alaska.
My goal is to own, and comfortably travel with, the least possible (and best possible!) gear that I can.
