The pack is virtually finished. I'm sewing the load lifters in place now.

Pictures with a full load. (hammock, pads, sleeping bag, liner, tarp and food bag with three days food supply, and cooking gear)

It's going to Springer Mountain tomorrow. Hope it doensn't fall apart.

I went for a 2 1/2 mile hike today with the pack. It's amazing how much harder walking is with 20 lbs on your back. I'm glad we're not taking the 8 1/2 mile hike option.
