My Locale Midwest
About Me I've been into backpacking since 2007. In that time, I've introduced my son (age 9 in 2010) to backpacking and we do most of our trips together. Most of our trips are within a few hours of Indianapolis, but I also have begun to section hike on the AT for a week every summer.

+1 on the Deuter fox backpack. I found it on clearance at REI outlet and it has been a good investment. I had been using a basic daypack for him, but my son found the deuter much easier to carry....
