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...
