I always advice new comers to fill out their gear lists by buying good, used gear.
What successes have you had at the local thrift sores?

I am going way back for this one - Army surplus Mountain cook set (two nesting 2 qt pots w/ frying pan lid) -still in service 50 years later

Also Army surplus bear paw snowshoes - price $7.50. Worked great right

As a young student, i haunted surplus stores and got a lot of items that worked, some adequately, some extremely well. Thrift stores still have bargains, but you have to know your stuff.

Actually, most of my sores have been pretty expensive.
