Frogg Togg Tester Call
- Throw my name in the hat for the Frogg Togg gear test. I've posted reports
for the Hennessy Safari. This one will be my test, not the whole family's,
so gathering information will be much easier.
I've read the new tester requirements and will comply with timely reports.
Testing will be done primarily in the New England area, mostly in central
Massachusetts. Actually, I'm leaning towards walking to work (2 miles, each
way) and testing several pieces of "gear" from shoes and socks to Totes
products to a Red Ledge jacket. I am invariably sorry when my first thorough
experience with equipment is on the trail.
My family car camped from my childhood. I became interested in backpacking
about 15 years ago, during my involvement as an active parent of a Boy Scout.
My interest in LIGHTWEIGHT backpacking started after a Grand Canyon adventure
last year. It was great, but there had to be a better way! Because of some
injuries, I am seeking comfortable lightweight backpacking methods. For my
summer adventure, I just completed a 110 mile section of the AT, using some
of the techniques and gear learned about here and other sites. Together, we
are finding better ways!
