Backpacking Background: I have been backpacking since 4 years of age, taking
week long trips into the mountains with my family. I hike various terrains
ranging from mountains and plateaus to grasslands and prairies. My excursions
can be a simple day hike with a light-weight waist pack, a loop trail requiring
up to 4 nights and
5 days on which I keep my pack as light-weight as possible, or an in-and-out
trip for a night or two where my pack can be quite heavy. Slow and steady is my
pace and I use a tent or a hammock depending on weather and terrain.
3. BRIEF TEST PLAN:
My test plan for the Gerber Crucial FAST would include using it during the up
and coming hunting season, both in the field, on my gear that may or may not be
needing repair and in my camp. I can also use it around the ranch and at work in
the fields to better get a feel for what the tool is capable of and its
