Gear Crawl at Goodwill
If you're outdoorsy and in need of more gear but want to start 2019 in a more, well, frugal way, then this event is for you. About an hour and a half drive from Seattle, One With is hosting a low-budget shopping opportunity to find used gear at the Goodwill in Bellingham. The cost of outdoor gear doesn't have to hinder your ability to get out and be one with nature. They recommend bringing $5 to $15 to spend but if you're feeling like that is still a stretch, feel free to reach out and inquire about their gear scholarships. Don't miss out—the mountains are calling!
