My Locale John S. hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me Originally from Louisiana, I enjoyed camping in my Boy Scouting days and eventually became an Eagle Scout. Many years later (2002), I discovered backpacking after going on an REI multisport trip to Alaska. My first backpack was to Grand Canyon, and I was hooked!

Re: Camera Case with Plastic Sandwich
Two pieces of plastic (one over front, one over back) held by shock cord and throw in any stuff sack. I'm from Louisiana. Kidding. Sam Haraldson wrote an article on a diy camera case I think.
