    The pack is virtually finished. I'm sewing the load lifters in place now.

    Pictures with a full load. (hammock, pads, sleeping bag, liner, tarp and food bag with three days food supply, and cooking gear)

    It's going to Springer Mountain tomorrow. Hope it doensn't fall apart.

    I went for a 2 1/2 mile hike today with the pack. It's amazing how much harder walking is with 20 lbs on your back. I'm glad we're not taking the 8 1/2 mile hike option.

    The pack worked just fine on the Springer Mountain trip. Pack weight was around 30 pounds. I do need to add sternum strap.

    We broke camp in the rain Sunday noon. I left the pad in the hammock and packed it the way moonbow suggested. That it worked out fine.
