Living periods out of a pack is a delight. Been taking little trips recently. Bigger ones like to Switzerland and ones like a few nights at FW's Mum's house in the middle of the Netherlands. We're looking at the forecasts for good weather to go winter camping soon. There's just something so satisfying about having a good pack and packing what you need. Over the years I've collected a lot of the good stuff. It's been expensive but I buy what I need and what I really value and use. It's a privilege and a joy to load into my pack the mini MSR pocket rocket (camp stove) and MONT sleeping bag that I waited years to buy. I just love a well packed bag.
