    Not having a lot of time, I only browsed the pictures in this article. I looooooooooove how the pack looks. It really looks closely to how I'd make a pack. Can we get more details? I'd love an MYOG article about this pack, but at a minimum I'd really like more pictures.

    Jamie,
    Great trip report, very nice pictures and writting. Thanks for making the time to post, your efforts are appreciated.

    I would like to see BPL continue with such articles. The site has a number of diverse individuals with similar abilities.

    A great report highlighting both the MYOG ethos as well as how we go about putting that gear to good use. Great story and photos!

    Great job on all the gear. You put those with underused sewing machines to shame!

    Well told story with excellent pictures. Great job on your MYOG.

    Terrific mileage especially when you throw in all those trips up the fire tower.

    Lots of black bears in the Smokies for sure!

    Thanks for your good work.

    Jamie,

    I was bitten by the MYOG bug in 2009 and I am not in search of a cure. :-)

    There is nothing like the satisfaction of making your own gear, taking it out on the trail and meeting up with success.

    Congratulations on doing both and thanks for sharing your experiences with us. The pictures were great but I have yet to be able to find the bear. ;-)

    The gearlist is great. It is always nice to be able to "peak" into another hiker's pack and learn from what is or is not carried.

    Thanks again for all the good work done on your article.

    Party On,

    Newton

    Hey, good story and photos. You inspire me to do some MYOG projects. Most of my MYOG projects to date have been merely modifications of commercial gear.

    Your tent looks interesting. As for a sleeping pad pack, well, mine would absolutely have to have 2 thin aluminum stays as in my REI Cruise UL 60. Tried the mattress-as-pack-frame and tried it again with no satisfaction above 20 lbs. Sometimes I need to carry food for 10 days plus 3 L. of water for dry stretches here in the southwest. That can put me above 25 lbs.

    Keep on posting about your MYOG gear. Very interesting.
