Backpack packing

Yesterday I drug my massively huge backpack out of storage. This morning I started packing away some of the gear that we have ready for this upcoming trip. Now I am wishing I had bought the even more massively huge pack. Still have food and assorted gear to pack and I'm almost out of room in my pack.

The Talker will be wearing a pack rented from REI. We can't pick that one up until Thursday afternoon. If he likes this trip, I bet we buy him one for the next trip. This time though, I'll tote most of the crap so that he can get used to hiking with a pack.

We leave early Saturday morning for a 3 hour drive to the National Forest. But even the drive should be nice, because we will be cruising through small towns and through the Texas country side the entire trip.

Sounds like a great father son outing.
