Wallets, like all of my gear, eventually wear out on the trail. They get wet, they get abused and then they disintegrate. In my search for a more durable product, I came across Trayvax. They make several models of tough, technical wallets right here in the USA. I contacted them about my upcoming (Feb 2017) hike of the Israel National Trail and inquired about their product. As a result of that contact, I am proud to say that the Trayvax Axis will be coming with me for the entire 642 mile trail. I feel like this will be a real test of exactly how tough this wallet is. I'll be swimming in the Red Sea, crossing the Negev Desert and generally abusing it (like I do all my gear!).
Gotta say, I am especially proud to be associated with a company that manufactures in the US, supports veterans and makes such a fine product. Stay tuned for more of my adventures with the Trayvax Axis.
He's back at it!
People who know me know that I belong on the Trail. I've thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail (twice),the Pacific Crest Trail and the mighty Continental Divide Trail. I've hiked many of the long trails here in Michigan including being the first to hike both the Ironwood Trail and the Great Lake To Lake Trail. In 2016, I hiked the Israel National Trail and the Golan Heights Trail. My next goal is to be the first person ever to hike the Baja Divide Trail.
The purpose of this blog is to keep anyone who is interested informed of my progress and to encourage those who are able to support me in this endeavor.
