I ended up buying a new pack.
It’s 70L with lots of pockets and can facilitate a camelback. Took it out last weekend loaded for a walk in the park with Zaya. The window for a trip is fast closing, so I will book a spot for next weekend at Jewel Bay.
I’m looking forward to spending some time alone in the woods. Currently I’m in Banff, I took a little walk in the woods today. Found a nice spot to sit by the river. Must have sat there for an hour, completely content.
