I'm actually looking at using my surplus Swiss rucksack for this one. I'm weighing in at around 24.75 including my poncho cape and food this time. I just need to tweak the hip belt on that one for a few. That rucksack has top and bottom access, so I can pack my peapod last from the bottom allowing me to have everything else ready to go before.
Hiking in those waders was pretty darned HOT with that big pack I used at Forney Creek. I'll be reverting back to my Innov-8's for this trip. Hopefully I can catch up before it gets too late Friday.
