Alright so I'm about to take off down the road in a couple weeks. I've got a backpack and a sleeping bag, but my only problem is that my backpack only has shoulder straps, and I'm not going to be able to get a new pack anytime soon. Is there any way I can attach my sleeping bag to this backpack so I don't have to carry it separately?

WHAT KIND OF PACK IS IT? Alice? Molle? if so you can get a frame for either for dirt cheap. If not be creative and sew loops and then use bungees like peanut butter said

I like the bungee idea, I'll try that out, thank PB. It's not an Alice or a Molle, it's just your average everyday backpack I used for college. I don't have a way to take a picture of it.

i used shoelaces tied around the straps my first time just roll your bag and then tie it to the bottom of the straps

most these kids traveling today have $100+ backpacks, most people dont have it like that, so if you can somehow get $30 go to walmart and get a hiking pack, and they have buckle straps to keep the top closed, i would put my sleeping bag on top with the buckle straps going over the sleeping bag and that holds it there pretty tight, even while running with your pack on...it would just be more comfortable for you

Figure out how to make a bedroll and tie it in a way where you can shoulder it. Very hoboesque.

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
