I am definitely a self confessed adventure gear geek. To me a rucksack is the equivalent of a new super-duper sound system or iPad (don’t get me wrong I’d love them too). There is something incredibly reassuring about having enough equipment in one rucksack to be able to survive and thrive (using the buzz words). This concept is also very sobering too as I contemplate whether we really need some of the trappings of modern day life, or is one bag enough.
