Yesterday afternoon, when getting ready to (literally) run some errands with Uwharrie, I realized that I could use a small pack to carry wallet, phone and reusable grocery bags. I also realized that by simply detaching the hip belt pockets to the sub 60 fast pack, I had such a pack, and that it was in line with our lifestyle. Good stuff. As of April Fool's, the last of the 59 manufactured kits are (mostly) ready for shipment. When they're gone, they're gone, and probably so are we!
Ideally, I'll be able to fast pack the SALT as sort of a farewell tour with a production pack before leaving. But then again, things are up in the air at the moment, which is okay. Speaking of SALT, many thanks to Brad for the awesome poster maps of the route with 100% proceeds going to the completion of the loop!
