My next backpack looks like it will be a cheep(enough) external frame pack off of ebay or craigslist...

I pretty much swear by Osprey packs nowadays.

I was gifted a used one in January of 2015, and although it's a bit worn at this point, it's still holding up and going strong.

Plus, Osprey has what they call their "Almighty Guarantee", which basically states that if you're in possession of an Osprey pack and it needs ANY repairs, you pay shipping to send it to their repair shop, and they'll repair and ship it back using the same method of shipping; for free. The guarantee also says that if the pack is beyond repair, they'll REPLACE the whole thing instead of trying to repair it.

I haven't tested this yet, cuz I don't have an address currently, but I might in the near future.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $105.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
