Training toys

San Francisco construction company employee Owen Cunningham's training toys

WHAT: REI Travel Down Pillow, Repel Sportsman Max Insect Repellent, Nalgene water bottle

WHERE: REI Outlet on 840 Brannan St.

WHY: “I’m going for a two-day hike this weekend at Emigrant Wilderness, which is a national forest right next to Yosemite National Park. A buddy of mine and I are going to get there Saturday, hike about six miles in and camp overnight. Then we’ll hike out the next day and come back home. A comfortable pillow is always nice, and of course you need a good water bottle because you have to stay hydrated.”

FAVORITE HIKES: “I always love going up Mount Tam, that’s a great hike. And I make sure I get out to Yosemite at least once a year. I’ve been on about four weekend hiking trips this summer.”

ADVICE: “Always remember bug spray. It is absolutely essential.”
