Wow! You Really Did Switch
I just looked at some of your pictures here on HF. Outstanding job on the gear you've made. You're right, I wouldn't have known you. You & I did a reverse in size. After over 2 yrs of hiking over 5,000 miles, after the fall, I was laid up for over a year. I packed on the pounds.
I always had a ton of respect for section hikers. One, you guys always had extra food. :D And two, most were willing to share. I'm trying my hand at DIY, but I'm better at hiking than sewing.
Take it easy.
