10/13/18 01:01 PM Best use of time, money by hikermor

In equipping to survive, what is the most effective use of your money and of your time?

In general, I feel the best use of money is to spend it on good training (and there are "training courses out there that are rip offs), especially on first aid. Many outdoor retailers offer courses and experiences in hiking, backpacking, etc. which look like good deals, although I have no experience. Anyone?

Buy basics first (training will help you there)...

Time? Get out and increase your knowledge and get familiar with your stuff.

10/06/18 06:12 AM how to get a heavy rucsack on? by quick_joey_small

I flew back to the UK this week and had a 70 pound pack. Carrying it was surprisingly easy, as far as commuting went. Airport to train, to bus, to taxi...
BUT actually getting it on my shoulders was the hard part. With there always being chairs in stations I could lift it on to them, then to my back. From the ground not so easy.
Anyone got a solution? I was thinking I could shoulder the pack then
add belt pouches to the waist belt with the heavy stuff. But ideally I'd want it on the pack itself.
