Attention All Gear Sluts
If you're reading this you're either a gear slut or you're lying. C'mon, we're all gear sluts. Take this simple test:
Do you have more than one pair of skis?
More than one climbing rope?
More than 1 outer wear jacket?
More than one fleece jacket in the closet?
More than 2 pairs of ski socks?
More than 1 day pack?
More than 2 beanies?
More than 1 pair of Chacos (or sandles)?
If you answered "Yes" to any of the above, you're a gear slut. Welcome to the team.
Kim Havell, Backcountry.com athlete and official gear slut, is pictured below taping up for another session in Castle Valley, Utah. She took the 3 step program. You should too.
There's no escaping this affliction. But there is a way to cope. I give you the three step program.
- Admitting you're a gear slut is the first step.
- Don't be afraid to let people know. Grab a GearSlut tee from Backcountry.com (GearSlut ladies version) and proudly display it to the world. (the men's happen to be on sale for $11.17 - sorry ladies)
- Third step is to sell blood, dig under the couch cushion, empty the change from your ash tray, or list that garage full of old gear on GearTrade or Craigslist and start the acquisition phase all over again.
