For many years we used to solely focus on what to put in our backpacks and not how to pack the backpack for best weight distribution or how it could benefit us in saving energy while proactively working with avoiding injuries. There are two guiding principles that may be relevant to you when you fill up and stack your PackStacks: organization and distribution. These two principles are intertwined; let's not sacrifice one for the other - the whole idea is to avoid negatively affecting your centre of gravity.
As you might recall from last year, we are supporting Expedition AKOR - the longest north-south crossing of Canada ever attempted. In total, the team will cover 7600km (equivalent of 180 marathons), over 7 months by using three means of travel (ski, canoe, and cycle) and spend 120 days in polar bear country. It’s now been over 3 months since the team set out on their expedition, and here is an update on their journey so far.
Every Monday at Hillsound Equipment, our team gets together (onsite or as it is now online) to share our personal highlights from the previous weekend. There are a lot of amazing adventures and shenanigans that our staff members get up to throughout the year. Last year we decided to take this discussion from our physical office or as it is now; our virtual office and let the whole world in on the fun. Be safe, go wild!
