Yesterday I finally purchased the last of the Big Three (tent, sleeping bag, backpack):
This is the Exos 58 by Osprey. Like the gear that will be inside it, this weighs roughly ONE THIRD of my previous backpack! Unbelievable.
I’ll do a YouTube video this week of everything I’m putting in my pack (except food, which I haven’t planned out yet).
Update: The cat food can stove is coming soon … just waiting for one of the cans to arrive that my brother-in-law cut for me. I’ll make a video about how I built that as well, along with a flame test video during which I will probably set myself on fire. (I didn’t get the nickname “Mr. Safety” for nothing, ya know!)
