Just got into the idea of, when carrying my sometimes extra dog food, extra water on my semi heavy pack, why not rig of an impermanent tumpline to use my neck and noggin to take a little weight off the shoulder and hips. Gonna try her out. Checking out primitive gear and packs got me on it. Even seen a few google flicks of people rigging them to internal frame packs. Kinda cool.

interesting, never heard of a tumpline, but of course seen it done on the discovery channel or somewheres. Ill sometimes do something similar with my sleepnsystem, with much the same effect, taking some weight off the shoulders by extending one of the outer straps to set on the fore-head... when there is nobody around to see, granted.

I'm going to try it out. Found some length of strap as I do often along most any road and gonna use elk hide as the padding. Well would it be anymore strain than a heavy pack upon just shoulders and hips? I'd rather be hunched at 60 from living than tight from desk work or some such other

Best if you can avoid being hunched at all, right?
I don't mean not doing it but doing in a way that avoids hunchedness.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    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
    $10.00 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
    $10.00 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
    $10.00 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.
