Every voyage of discovery starts with preparation. Gear is acquired or invented to ensure that the expedition will be a success. This kit is my preparation for an expedition into unknown frontiers. I have redesigned or invented each piece of inventory to serve my needs on the unforgiving fringe, areas foreboding and beautiful, holding a promise of adventure and enterprise for those willing to bear the discomfort.
