    Looks a lot like my old (but still in use!) Trailwise pack frame . . .

    Fake Left, Drive Right . . . not my idea of a Democrat . . .

      I remember hiking with George when he, like myself, both had North Face "Back Magic" backpacks. I'm sure he, also like me, had other frames, but I don't think he wore, as I did, an internal frame (which, when mountaineering, or for excessive long canyon hikes, works better for me because I can carry more gear). Anyway, I have long since donated all that stuff to Good Will or similar. I know I could have sold it on eBay or some such, but I prefer giving back something, especially when I have made such a great and grand living and income as an educator-guide type. Oh, there's not too much money in this line of work, but I got to meet some of the greatest people in the world, and all of whom had a common bond of loving the outdoors. What's not to love about that?

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
