I didn't do nothin'. On another forum I was bemoaning the fact that I was going to have to leave the outdoors if I wasn't able to change some of my kit. I was offered (free of charge) an internal frame pack that did not fit my torso but did convince me that internal was the way to go. I was also given, free of charge, a HH Safari complete with Hex tarp. I figured "I can't go wrong." Well, long story short I was asking questions and Hog On Ice suggested I come over here. The rest is history. Been there, done that, got the T-shirt, hat and tote bag.
