The Updated “Ten Essentials” Gear List for Outdoor Enthusiasts
John Van Barriger
Since the 1930s, the “Ten Essentials” list has been a mainstay of must-have gear when adventuring outdoors. Whether hiking, bicycling, camping, or paddling, there are some items that everyone should take in order to be prepared - and thrive - in the natural world. In this presentation, The Outdoor Kind’s John Van Barriger updates the venerable list to not only include modern technology and seasonal variations, but also the “systems” approach when thinking about these necessities.

Hiking Kentucky's Red River Gorge

The Red River Gorge Geological Area is a unique landscape in Eastern Kentucky, a part of the Daniel Boone National Forest. This is a land of long narrow ridges with steep cliffs, arches, natural bridges and rock houses. There are many miles of trails and a wide range of camping & lodging options. And yes, a river does run through it. This evening we will paddle and hike through this amazing landscape.
