Training with my fastpacking pack. This is all I will carry on my back for my 601 mile journey. I know it doesn't look like much but I have a tent, sleeping bag, foam pad clothes and food. First aid kit and few other things.
Have a great day:) Posted by Picasa

Holy Crap-ola! I think you need to talk to my SO. He told me to get ready to carry 70lbs (each) for a 4 day trip. I think it's time to downsize!!

Hey Brad- Tell your SO that you guys will have more fun if you go light and not take the City life with you..LOL.. You can tell the City slickers on the trail they bring way to much.

nice pack!

johnny and i had a conversation about backpacking this weekend. we used to subscribe to backpacker magazine, and based on the magazine, you'd think everyone was a fast-packer. but all the backpackers we see are waaaay overloaded. not to mention, we actually saw someone with an external frame pack this weekend, yow!
