The Gear Junkie has posted an interview of himself conducted by Bill Katovsky that originally appeared at RailRiders.com. They touch on a number of subjects including some of GJ’s endurance events from last year, his favorite camping and hiking locations in the U.S. and Canada, thoughts on modern gear vs. the stuff Shackleton used, and much much more.
Definitely a fun read and it’s likely to make you even more jealous of the Gear Junkie (also known as Stephen Regenold) than you were in the past. He gets all kinds of great gear, gets to play in the wild with it, and then write his thoughts. Did I mention that he also gets paid to do that? Who do I have to sleep with to get a gig like that?
I found this particular quote, in reference to last year’s Primal Quest, to be especially humorous:
Primal, on the other hand, was a weeklong bought[sic] of absolute physical, mental and existential realignment, punctuated by thirst, hunger, fear, exhaustion, emotional breakdown, and enlightenment.
So don’t mince words Stephen. Did you have fun or not? 🙂
