Howdy Today I watched a bum struggle to put on some old Jansport book-bag style pack he had way over-burdened with strapped-on garbage bags full of crap... the tiny little straps and horrible load distribution looked incredibly uncomfortable. I immediately thought about the old pack on the shelf in my garage that I haven't used since sometime in the early '0s. He could certainly use it more than the shelf... All our old, outdated, replaced climbing/camping/hiking gear would probably be incredibly useful to these guys.. shelters, packs, and stoves most of all, I'd think. Even stuff that's too old or beat up for any kind of mountain use would probably work fine for sea-level city camping. I've got a couple old-but-still-dry Goretex jackets, a pack, a couple down jackets, and other miscellaneous crap.. Anybody have anything to contribute?
