    Ok, so my BOB and GHBs are complete. Now... on to improving them.

    Hit an REI garage sale this morning and picked up a 28l Ruckpack to upgrade one of my GHBs with. $100 new, mine for $45. Nothing wrong with it, as it was marked "didn't like the functionality". It will replace the $5 used book bag I purchased at the local thrift store. This has the ability to put a hydration bladder in it, so that will be put on the wish list.

    Also picked up a couple SOL Heatsheet survival blankets. Those will be a huge improvement over the $2 Coghlans' 'space' blanket.

    Ordered a Feuerhand Lantern from Germany. I have one antique Dietz in mint condition. I have another newer one, a little smaller.

    Looking forward to getting this and using it for some camping excursions. I'm reading it's a quality lamp.

    I guess I have a dozen or so kerosene lamps in the house of different sizes, shapes and designs.

    Back in '95, we had an ice storm and the electricity was out for 10 days. the house was lit up like a Christmas tree and everyone thought we had power.

    A spare meat thermometer is also worth having. I also need to rotate and acess my storage items, something I try to do each fall.

    Took the new GHB out for a test spin. Once I put the trash can out by the curb for pickup tomorrow morning, I pulled it out of the truck strapped it on, and hit the trail. 1.94 miles, 40 minutes. Much more comfortable than my previous bag. Well worth the half C-note it cost.

    Started out with a light, spittin' drizzle, and it waffled up and down the whole trip. Nothing enough to soak me, more of a nuisance than anything else. But it showed me my current rain gear is inadequate. I'll have to research a poncho that covers a pack. And not the $3 disposables sold at WallyWorld.

    Worked up a mild sweat, despite it being in the mid 50s tonight. Might have to start making this a regular thing.

    Dang.... I decided to actually read that site and watch the video. It HAS a captive rain cover. And more pockets than I thought possible. And it's accessible from the side (no opening the top and pulling things out, or digging through everything).

    Boy, did I get more than I bargained for!
