We prefer to head into the wild with just a slingshot and a handkerchief but that ain’t for everybody. If you’re finding yourself light on gear, or you don’t want to lug yours to the start line, no worries. We’ve got a gear guy.
We’ve partnered with the crackshot team at Adventures Accessed as the official outfitters of The Driftless 250. They’re experts at getting lost in the woods and know a thing or two about digging cat holes and hanging hammocks.
For a small fee we’ll get you geared up so that you head out into the Driftless Region feeling like Ernest Shackleton. Click here and then add outfitting to your cart.

Get outfitted clicking here and adding outfitting to your cart. We’ll aside some gear and polish it up real nice for you. We will also send over some follow up questions and details as we get closer to the event.
You’ll pickup your gear at the start party of the event. At this point we’ll also give a 20 minute tutorial with tips, a demonstration of how not to hang a hammock, and stories of adventures gone wrong.
