Yesterday the hubby and I got to get away into the mountains and do some hiking.❤️🌲 The sound of our boots crunching in the snow amongst a quiet forest was such a treat! (With 3 young littles...there’s not much quietness in our home 🤪🤷🏻♀️) We are looking into to doing some backpacking trips and wanted to try out and break in our “new to us gear.” Our local mountains were beautiful! ❄️🌲 We have always purchased our outdoor gear second hand and we love it!!! R.E.I has their garage sale a couple times a year and is a great place to score on some outdoor goodness! We haven’t been in years but we went last weekend and found some great things that were on our backpacking list ❤️ *Osprey pack $60 (originally $220)
*La Sportiva hiking boots $28 😱 (originally $175) *Leki trekking poles (from a rei sale years ago)
*Jet boil, headlamp, rain jacket, trail running shoes, and rock climbing shoes for me and the kids (these are not pictured, but were all great deals...And were on our adventuring to buy list 🙌🏻)
You’ll find some things at the sale are pretty worn, somethings new with tags and everything in between. The boots I bought were probably worn one time and were less than $30!!!
Sorry, that was a lot of words!!! All that to say...if you love doing outdoorsy things, this is a great way to score on some gear, save some money, and shop ethically! 😉 Our pop up events are another place to score on these type of goodies. Last sale there were a great pair of rock climbing shoes for $20! 😍 It’s more of a rarity at our sales, but occasionally you find some outdoorsy gems! 😉 ~Where is your favorite place to adventure?
