Podcast about the current news and information about Gear Forward, a non-profit aimed at outfitting the next generation of adventurers through donations of gear from the outdoor community at large.

Welcome to the Gear Forward Update - Episode 4. 

During this episode, we highlight one of our current needs for a very adventurous Girl Scout troop in Minnesota who are actively trying to raise money for.
