    I thought I was obsessed with backpacks (and I am. Guilty as charged). Really nice layout. Well thought out.

    I think I have gear stored in bags and labeled like rooms in a house i.e. bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and what you would have in those rooms. Mine pales in comparison to yours, Diesel. I have a long way to go.

    Great post!

    Brewer if I were to guess I'd say it's Late 80's 88/89 maybe

    Can I run my gear pictures list off yours or start my own? I think I have some things to offer the community =-)

    Thanks for posting this Diesel, lots of good ideas and the pics were fantastic. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that thinks it's always better to have a couple or three of the same or different items that do the same thing.

I'm so visual and new to this, so this is WONDERFUL! I can put items with names, and see what people have for ideas. Thanks! I know it's time consuming, but I'm learning a lot. (and I'm sure I'm not the only one. )
    Thanks really appreciate that, more to come

    I dont know how I missed this one either?? Thanks for taking the time to take pics and go over all this stuff! I love all the packs! You are a gear whore.. :) Im looking for a good starter sleep system. I just use a heavier sleeping bag now. Was thinking of picking up what the Mr. has, the Army sleep set 3 piece, dont even know what its called. I want lightweight and dont want to spend a ton, so essentially, a starter set. Ill take a look at your sleep system thread, you mentioned! What do you think about your Mountainsmith pack? I have the ladies Aspen 30, I got for about $45.00. Its a handy pack! You have any complaints with yours? I love finding good deals on them. Its like my old thoughts about handbags, except now packs, "You can never have too many"! lol... Except packs actually serve a purpose! :)
