GORUCK Challenge Event Gear and Training Tips

Training for your first GORUCK Challenge?
Make sure you have the gear you need. 
Pictured is the gear I used on 2 GORUCK events.  1 Challenge and 1 Light.  I completed my first event, a 15hr 20plus mile Challenge, in December of 2013 and recently completed the 9/11 Light Special Event.  And I am looking forward to completing GORUCK's new Charming the Snake 2016 events.
I also have listed at the bottom some general tips on training for someone who is training for their first event.

Waypoints January 2016

What I've been reading.

I've been following and reading author and life hacker Tim Ferris' work since The 4-Hour Workweek came out but just this month got into his podcasts.  I just never was interested in listening to podcasts but I highly recommend his shows.  You will get something out of almost any episode you listen to.  I have to have pen and paper with me while I listen and usually end up with multiple pages of notes by the end.

Bookshelf 2015

I enjoy and support reading. Not only as a calming pastime but as a means to further your self education, which in many cases can be more important than your formal one.

Here I have compiled a list of the books I have read through or at least partially this year.  I subscribe to the thought that it's ok to skim a book or skip parts if they bore you. 
There are no rules to reading.  Just read what you like.

Sabra Gear Quick Pouch Review

Sabra Gear is an Israeli company making high quality bags and packs.  I usually do my best to buy American but if I'm buying a foreign product I have absolutely no problems supporting an Israeli company.

Also, Israel is near the top, if not the top destination on my Life List I would love to be lucky enough to visit one day.
