What Do You Take, What Do You Leave Behind? We Asked, You Told

All you Repeat Offenders with San Juan Huts mileage under your belt, we heard ya! What is absolutely crucial for a rider to take on the 215 -mile Durango to Moab or Telluride to Moab hut to hut trip, and what can you ditch?

Responses ranged from the very wise and simple-a Gortex windblock shell jacket-to the celebratory-wine in a bag, anyone? One rider brought too much gear as is the tendency for some folks and ended up shipping some unnecessary belongings back home from the tiny Gateway Post Office. Other advice was as straightforward as bring a change of clothes to avoid the 24-hour lycra adornment. Smart.
