Walking the pack

Just about everything is set, but I haven’t done this kind of walking in a long time, and I’m working out my organization. I was out with the pack this morning, and it felt fine. Weight will vary, of course, based on the amount of water and food I’m carrying at any given time, but base weight is going to be 18-20 lb., so I’ll be walking mostly with a 20-25 lb. load. Frankly, I’d rather have an amanuensis, or perhaps a hillwalking valet. Polite, not inappropriately familiar, utterly competent, and devoted to my well-being. Or a caddy. This would let me swing along without sticks until I really needed them, and I’d get help in selecting the appropriate models, as well.

Pix tomorrow … of the pack, not the caddy.
