Another Option
I'm one who uses the Alras because nothing else really works for my feet (I've tried lots of other shoes). One shoe I just saw is the Merrell Ascend Glove. Looks like a beefed up Trail ...

Golite waist belt issue
In my opinion there are better packs but the Jam is not a bad pack for the money. Check out David's blog (bedrock and paradox) somewhere on there he shows a mod for the hipbelt of a Jam.

Re Approach Shoes

How about a packrafting/hiking trip somewhere in Alaska? Depending on how much money you have I'd consider a "warm up trip" in the northern Rockies or just a couple days in Alaska. ...

Spoiled Brat
"Frankly I thought he was a selfish, spoiled little brat" Two things jumped out at me from the story 1. He never contacted his family. Big red flag there. Might have been family pro...
