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

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
