    I am SO looking forward to the rest of the articles. umm... can you do mid document anchor links? you know, sleeping is all the way down the page (2nd article) but the link goes to the top... do you understand me or do I need to clarify?

    thanks again

    Actually I was planning that originally, I'm still trying to see how that will work in the VB software since links are not the same in the code.

    "The more I carry, the more I enjoy camping; the less I carry, the more I enjoy hiking. So with that in mind, are you going camping or hiking?"

    Well said!

    Default re: Pack weight

    Where in the world do you get a pack that weighs only 32 ounces? It must cost a small fortune.

    Oops! I pulled 114 from the volume to weight column of my spreadsheet ... The current price is $200!

    Took me 6 years to find your article(s). Funny, even with all the "improvements, widgits, & gadgets" that have been introduced since you published your list, you still cover all the bases. My hats off to you Sarge, (almost said Sir), along with a pack full of gratitude.
    I learned back in 1970 to listen to the "Top" and I would make it back home. As you can see I am still here. Hope you are still humping the boonies, and may our paths cross someday. The first brew will be on me.
    Respectfully,

    Jungle John
