Wool blankets are over-rated. I had one i used in the North Cascades and I froze my ass off! I ended up buying a nice 20 degree bag off of a PCT hiker. Problem solved.
To hell with making things any harder than they already are.
Harder? I have more of. Hard time with the huge packs kids carry then A bindle .Btw not a wool blanket

That yt vid was great, btw. "You throw in your essentials, essential oils, candles: T-rex" lmao. is that you in the vid?

The bindle "will" most likely become obsolete by @TheTexasRoadrunner after awhile where as the dogs probably wont.

Packs are as heavy or light as you pack them and distribute weight evenly to avoid fatigue. Packs can be used as seats. They can have cardboard signs affixed to them. They can carry more/less gear if needed as season/locations change. You can attach dog leashes to a pack. They can alternatively be tossed off trains so you can better help your 3 dogos down safely. Even heavy duty hiking/military packs do not always survive the riggers of traveling. Having a sleeping bag inside of a bindle just seems strange. Have you ever considered strapping it to the stick? A pack is also an identifier that says; this person carrying said pack is a traveler; not just another weird homebum or some long distance dog walker.

If you are gonna be a traveler, get used to the weight of a pack. Being able to shoulder that weight anywhere/everywhere while under any/all conditions builds core strength & confidence. Many welcome the weight of their packs.

  1. Paying the Bills

    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
    $0.00 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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.
