I came across this photo somewhere, about 6 months ago. It has been sitting on my desktop waiting for me to do something with it. I absolutely love this picture. I look at it almost everyday. It really captures the honest, and traditional art of wilderness tripping. Look at the slight smile, He wouldn't trade having a 80lb pack on his back for nothing at that moment. Not only that, but the gear he has as a whole. I find it funny how today, in 2012, I wear a Stormy Kromer, and a wool shirt everyday in the cooler weather, and while in the bush I wear 16" bean boots and wool pants. Looking at the photo it looks like its from the 30's - 40's, and his gears is still viable some 70 years later, and is still the best you can get. Wool and Leather folks, its all you need!
