Throw Back Thursday


This would have been in 1976 or 1977, when I was 17 years old. The pack was a Kelty BB5, a marvelous old pack -- the largest Kelty made at the time, and first introduced in 1969. The "sissy bar" on top moved weight higher, which is always a good idea if you are doing long-distance walking and the tree cover over the trail will allow it.

I had a couple of pack frames like that. Not that brand, but with the high bar in back. Best way to go long distance with a heavy load.
