2012 Gear Swap (2nd Annual), Event Report

Vic Hasler reporting

Event Date: April 21st

In spite of delaying the Gear Swap until April, a chilly morning greeted the nearly dozen folks setting up booths for this year’s event.  However, plenty of hot coffee was available with friendly conversations and negotiations to warm the crowd looking at various camping, biking, backpacking, and paddling equipment.  One person who brought a truckload of gear due to a planned home move was successful in finding buyers for three-quarters of the items.  A kayak, mountain bike, A-frame tent, and bike rack also traded hands.  Consensus was that 8-11 AM was adequate, thus the planned time for next year’s event, likely on the same second weekend in April.  See you then…
