About Gear for Adventure
We're your affordable and reliable source for camping, hiking, backpacking and canoeing gear!
Thanks for taking the time to browse our site! Gear for Adventure was started in September of 2004 by Kevin and Sarah Beckwith to pursue a lifelong dream of owning our own business and to allow Sarah to quit her day job so she can stay home to take care of any children we may have. As of this writing (9-12-05) Sarah is pregnant with our first child and due on Christmas Day of 2005. UPDATE: Sarah gave birth on January 3rd 2006 to a (sometimes) happy, healthy baby girl! Anyway here is our story. We've always hiked and camped our whole lives and continued to venture a little farther in the woods and stay a little longer. In 2001 we took a week long trip to Algonquin park in Canada and loved it. For those of you who haven't been there I highly recommend it. There are many lakes (most of which allow no motorboats) and terrific solitude. The only way to get to the interior of the park is to hike, canoe or float plane. This really got us into the serenity of hiking and paddling and got me to thinking I'd like to make a living in this industry. Since then we've climbed a Munro in Scotland and a mountain in the Adirondacks. This is a picture of us on the Munro in Scotland.
Here we are with our 6 Month old daughter Kaitlin. We are at the Middle Falls of Letchworth State Park in New York.
Once again, thanks for browsing the site and we hope you find what you need.

Yes our daughter is now three years old! Here she is taking a break from snowshoeing and enjoying the taste of snow.
