    And while we're at it, Never Complain Again...

    Excerpt from Jocko Podcast #12 after reading “The Forgotten Highlander".

    If 4mins is too long for you... skip to the 2:48 mark and listen to Echo Charles talk about the cable guy coming. ;)

    @Strigidae
    You don’t cut down the length of your toothbrush because you feel it’s wasted space and weighs to much do you? (I seriously know a guy who takes weight very seriously :) )

    One of my biggest takeaways from joining a sar team has been to pack less. I still find myself with too much gear most of the time, but I'm getting better.

    I only carry the gear that will fit in my truck. Anything more than that is just overkill.

    I admire those that can live out of a duffel bag. I do not see the need.

    Not it. That might make sense on a light weight competition backpacking trip if there was such a thing.

    When you absolutely positively have to have the lightest pack around .... :D

    I do not believe they are commercially available now though... :(
