I did yet another overnighter (March 7th - 8th) at Caledon State Park (it's where I like to take folks to sort of ease them into the "trekking" thing), and I took the opportunity to take a picture of my gear as it is now! This has made the rounds on FB, but I wanted to post it here, as well. I didn't feel like starting a new topic, so please excuse the necroposting and consider this an update. Things have changed a bit in 5 years!

It's a beautiful layout, and a fantastic example of functional trekking. Bravo!
