Osprey Exos 55
Diving into spectacular landscapes, taking advantage of lightweight modern gear, preparing ultra-light meals & contraptions, relaxing around a campfire... it's fun.
Intermediate, very comfortable with 2-3 day trips.
The lakes in the Pecos, hot springs in the Jemez & Gila, the Rio Puerco and Rio Chama valleys, the Manzanos and San Pedros, Lincoln NF.
My home-made contraptions: ultra-light Esbit stove, gravity filter rig, minimalist seat, dog's snuggie blanket, etc. And ziplock bags.
My dogs make me do it.
