Thanks, Cairn. You’re the best personal shopper ever

I’ve been on the Carin mailing list for a few years now and I LOVE it.  If you have not checked it out you should.  It’s one of those membership boxes where they send you something relevant to your interests every month for a nominal fee.  In this case, $30.  I think it’s totally worth it – some people have a Starbucks habit, mine is gear.

Every month  you get a mystery box with contents valued at over $30 retail, and it’s a great way to build your gear collection in ways you never knew you needed.  I have been able to make use of pretty much everything; I swear, when I packed for the Boundary Waters my pack was like a runway model for the Carin box.  Even stuff I hung on to thinking it would be a good gift for someone else, I found myself selecting it for the trip.

I wish I was getting a free box for this shameless plug, but I’m not – I just think it’s a highlight to my  month.  A lot of people ask me how i acquired the gear I’m using or how i discovered it – it’s Carin.  Always Carin.  I figured it was high time I threw it out there

Anyway, I hope you find it useful, and as always, thank you for sharing this story with me
