Have you ever wished that your favorite gear shop would just appear at a trailhead so you could get new shoes? Maybe you have been dreaming of lightening up your backpack? Or maybe you lost your favorite spoon somewhere along the way and need to pick up a new one? You're in luck!
2 Foot Adventures and Whitney Gear are Mobile! You heard that right! Our swanky little gear shops can move. 2 Foot Adventures is a fully restored 1968 Vintage Airstream that's like nothing you've ever seen before, and we are coming to a trail near you.
Whitney Gear is a 1951 Vagabond. She's been decked out to hold gear for PCT, JMT, and Mt. Whitney hikers and is currently deployed in Lone Pine at the corner of Hwy 395 and Whitney Portal Road.
We started our journey in Fall 2016 and traveled over 25,000 miles looking at Airstreams, meeting with designers, and getting permits. We've worked really really hard to bring the best and most affordable ultralight backpacking gear to you. As avid outdoor adventurers ourselves, we know how important having the right gear is which is why we partnered with so many companies that are passionate about helping hikers like you stay outdoors longer.
Mary was part of the PCT Class of 2014. She has cycled across the US via the Southern Tier, completed a 100-mile ultra-marathon, and Ironman triathlons. She's also spent a summer off-trail in the Sierra traversing more than 50 passes and bagging 10+ peaks. If there's an outdoor adventure, she's up for it!
Charlie has been passionate about the outdoors his whole life. As teenagers with over 100 lbs on their backs, he and his best friend set out to hike along the Pacific Crest Trail from Lake Isabella to Lake Tahoe. They quickly realized they had no idea what they were doing and soon turned their backpacking adventure into a hitch-hiking adventure across the country. Since then he's lightened up his gear and enjoys spending time exploring his front yard, the Southern Sierra Nevada Mountains, rockhounding, and digging for fossils.
Together, Mary and Charlie, founded 2 Foot Adventures and Whitney Gear. They are super excited to be helping hikers along the Pacific Crest Trail, John Muir Trail, and at the base of Mt. Whitney during the Spring and Summer of 2017. Stop by and experience what everyone is talking about!
