We weren’t sure what to expect when we got to Portland, but we knew we had a trailer full of awesome gear from some of the best outdoor retailers we know. During our 7-day journey, we were tossed a few curveballs so it paid to have a variety of equipment available. We spent the majority of the trip exploring and hiking around Oregon and we were thankful to have jackets, flannels, pants – basically all of the layers – to keep us warm.
We would not have made it the week without our trailer of awesome camping gear. Thank You to everyone who contributed to our Portland experience – we were so lucky to have all of the equipment we needed. Our trip turned out to be better than we could have possibly imagined.
These products cover everything from proper hiking gear to camping essentials and more. We truly appreciate all of the amazing companies that allow us to camp, hike and explore this wild world.
