    Looks like a really nice trip - Great pics! I too enjoy taking a moment to check out the critters when they show up.

    Hey, I like the hiking pole idea for the tarp pull-outs. I've often thought about trying this with some trail sticks (small saplings) to take advantage of their springiness. Gonna hafta try it . . .

    What temperature gauge is that? It says acurite, but I can't find a model that looks like it.

    Yup! I love this thing more than any other cookware I own. Worth the extra weight if you ask me. Lots of room, and has a bail. Boiling 1 or 2 cups of water doesn't cut it for someone as thirsty as I.

    Yes, it made his tarp soo much more luxurious. A small sapling would be perfect I think. Wonder why I never think of this stuff.

    Yes, that's the one in your link. I got it at Walmart for $6 or so, then rip off the suction cup.

    I'm more into bushcrafting, these types of materials better suite my style and more field repairable imo. I try to explore all types of gear, and pick what makes me happy.If you go through my threads, you'll see that I try and use all types of gear, from ultralight, to ultra heavy. If there was a practical way to bring along a 14'' dutch oven, you can bet I'd bring it with me. lol

    Why? Because I can.

    They held up fine, I'm confident these Frost River packs will outlast any other pack I have. Will a super heavy backpack always be my choice? Heck no! But theres something about these old fashioned pieces of gear, that really appeal to me.

    That is a Frost River. It is pure awesomeness. His grandkids will use that bag.

    Great report and I like all the pics. Love the pack too. Only thing missing is an ax!
