WTB: SMD Gatewood Cape on 03/26/2013 00:26:25 MDT Print View

Hi all: long time lurker, first time poster here.

I'm planning a JMT hike this summer, and though I'm married to the most amazing woman in the world, she will not be my hiking partner this time (she'll be taking care of our son so that I can do this, one of the 1,000,001 reasons that she's so amazing).

I'd prefer not to carry our TT Double Rainbow on this trip if I can help it, so this seems like the perfect time to find out in practice if a Gatewood Cape is really for me. Does anyone have one that they'd be willing to part with?

Thanks for your time! I really appreciate it.

Well, I just closed a deal on a Gatewood Cape that I found on Craigslist; I got one for $100, factory seam sealed, set up once but never used on a trip. Thanks to anyone who considered helping me out but couldn't. Who knows; if it turns out that a Gatewood Cape is not really for me, you may see this posted for sale (but don't count on it).

Wishing an epic summer of hiking to all,

Mike
