CDT Q&A Compilation: Camera gear, buried treasure, Lock Laces, bull ridin', etc.

Published on 20 Oct 2018 / In Continental Divide Trail (CDT)

Hey y'all! Whenever I take a zero I try to do a Live Q&A on Patreon that usually lasts 1.5 to 2 hours. Sometimes we edit them down afterwards and post some of the questions on here in case some of y'all who aren't on Patreon have some of the same questions. These questions are from some of the Q&As earlier in the trail that we didn't post to Youtube, and I hope y'all find the information here useful/interesting! Here are all the topics/questions discussed and the time stamps, so go through and find something that interests you!
