Backpacking ... 

I'm a big backpack nut. 

Funny, because when I was growing up, no one used backpacks.  

Over the years, I started seeing people using them.  Then I started doing a LOT of International travel and don't get me started about how I hate check-in luggage.  So on one "around-the-world" trip (30 days, a month long), I packed ONLY a large backpack where I avoided needing to do any check-in luggage.  It was great.  I was hooked and the luxury of never having to go through airport luggage check-in was a dream

Now I have a big collection of backpacks for different uses.  

Business Travel (Wilson Leather) 

Tech Bag (SwissGear)

Work/Daily Driver (SwissGear)

Hiking/Outdoors (Dakine)

Overnighter (Dakine)

Projects (Ogio)

Special Events (Ogio)

I am planning a few "get-aways" and I'm looking forward to getting in a lot of backpack trips in 2021. (Utah and Arizona here I come).
