LOL, too funny about the conniptions! here it is again, just in case you were experiencing withdrawal. And, I am quite proud to be a modern hillbilly, so thanks for the props!

Guess I'm more a "whatever I have that gets the job done on my budget" kind of rider, for better or worse...

Most my camping gear is car-camping style: big, bulky and heavy. Trust me, I want to whittle the load down to about 1/2 to 1/3 that size and heft, just a matter of finding good deals and making deliberate choices. And nowadays I'm just avoiding packing casual clothes and withstanding a little more stinky-ness - but you ultra-lightweight packers will have to pry my clean socks and undies from my cold dead fingers!
