This will be the first major trip I've taken with almost exclusively self-made gear and clothing. A couple projects didn't get done in time (primarily the re-done cagoule), and some aren't worth doing... I'm quite happy with my Ti-Tri, and I'm not about to start making spoons or mugs! As our departure date draws near, however, I find that I'm perhaps more than a little nervous about everything working as planned.

My pack is built, seems ok... but will all the stitching hold? Did I reinforce things properly? Will the frame remain comfortable for two weeks on the trail? If it hovers around freezing and I have to zip up my bag, will I be able to tolerate its narrowness? Will the NeoAir alteration hold?

Sometimes it's hard to "keep the faith," ya know? I'm pretty sure everything will work fine, BUT...

Exclusively Myog gear trip, thats quite an achievement !

I really enjoy using gear i did myself, shelter clothes etc.. but i am far from this.
And to be honest first long trip with myog shelter i brought some duc tape and a 1/3 left seamgrip tube.
I ended using both , not on myog gear but for exemple to fix my ID shortie gaiters :)
