Well, there was a little snafu with the Hennessy. It was shipped insured which requires a signature. The wife wasn’t able to sign for it and I had to wait until this morning to pick it up. Fortunately the PO is on the way to work. When I got home my GoLite Jam2 pack was here also. w00t!
I have to say that I’m highly impressed with just how little the Jam2 weighs. The 1.5 lbs is a big difference from the 4.5 lbs of my other pack. With the Jetboil, hammock, water, and Hiker Pro I’m at 10.5 lbs. I need to throw some more stuff in but so far I don’t think that’s too bad for a wet weight.
The Hennessy took a little work. Unfortunately I had a meeting tonight and by the time I got started it was about 8 and the sun was going down so I had to rush. It took me a few tries to get the tree huggers at the right height. I still need to play with it some more. I think I was still too low. I was getting eaten alive by the skeeters so that didn’t help matters.
Well, it’s late and I’m tired so I’ll keep it short. I should have pics soon.
Tomorrow should be another great day. I’m hoping to finally get my Kenn Targhee II Mids in. It’s been crazy finding the right size. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that 11.5 works for me.
