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.
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.
