If you can't mooch anything else it might be worth thinking about.

    Unfortunately I got rid of all my stuff like that a while ago.
    Thanks, I will look into those. Mule

    Gotta measure, I'm not sure, but they're big

    Put a price on the packs and the hammock.
    Not sure about cubic inches, but I'll try to do the math and get back to you today. I'd take $150 for the whole bunch, that's 100 for the hammock and 25 each for the packs. I never even used the hammock, but I bought it here for $100. The packs are mine from 2003 and 2004. The REI has about 100 AT miles and the Mountainsmith has less than 50.
    Okay I googled and one website said the Chimera was 3750 and one said 4000... By the way, although it is considered a "women's" pack, it is identical to the men's Auspex. The REI is bigger than the Mountainsmith, so I'd estimate 4000-4200 cu inches. It is a blue canvas-like internal frame.

    If you end up looking for another pack, I have a Lowe Alpine Contour classic that's gigantic. PM me if your other deals don't fall through. 50 bucks sounds about right for it.

    If none of the other packs work out, I have two "Back Magic", external frames by The North Face. Nice big, padded hip belts that connect to the pack by a piece that allows the belt to move with the hips as you walk. I love the way these packs carry.
    I think they weigh about 7lbs each. Still very serviceable.

    One is my trusty "pack horse" from the heavy pack days. It'll carry more than a backpacker needs to carry<G>.
    It took me a couple minutes to make the decision to sell them, especially the one I used for so long, but I guess it's time to let go<G>.

    If interested, I'll sell them for $30 each, plus shipping. ...Tim

    I have shipped a few. Find a box that fits or larger, cut down if needed and take to the post office.

    find a box big enough

    The hardest part is finding a box long enough. I am a packrat and happened to have an old box that had been used for a good size picture frame mailed to me. I put the two packs in and took it to the PO. It would be over $25 to use priority due to the size, not the weight. So I shipped parcel post. Easy, peasy. Mule should have them in a week or so.
