What does “Gud” mean?

“GUD” is the Morse code abbreviation for Good. Seems fitting for a gear blog to sport an abbreviation from the telegraph – a piece of gear that revolutionized communications. was founded in 2013.

Back then, the site was just a shell (we've had trouble determining what it was actually about). In January 2018, we rescued the domain and gave it new life as a blog about adventure gear.

We've been writing about travel and photography for years. We love to camp, bike, and hike. It just seemed like the next step to write about the best gear for outdoor adventures. It is our goal to become the best resource for outside gear.

And thus GudGear: The Gear Blog was born.
