Remote Paramedical pain in the ass
thin bungee cords. They work great to hold the bag to the frame, and also to hold up tarps for shelters and go up quicklyMy new-to-me frame Kelty back-pack arrived today. I chose one with an enormous capacity. Was worried the frame would be too large for my torso, but it is very comfortable. Ultralight and synthetics are fashionable, and do have their place, but I think woolens have a better track record if one is around open fires, as opposed to camp stoves. I wanted a lot of capacity for bulky warm coverings incase I ended up camping in winter.
Turns out, I forgot about ordering cinch straps for the sleeping bag - so that is an overlooked prep. I guess twine will do for now. Knots suitable for cinching twine? I'll need to watch some YouTubes (Corporal's Corner channel has some good lessons on camping knots). Knot skills are another overlooked prep for me.
i have some British Basha shelter tarps in the emergency bags for shelter. In each of their storage bags I have half a dozen 36” bungee cords. I can put up a tarp shelter in about two minutes if I’m in some trees and taking my time.
