Below are your edits for your backpack FR. Sounds like a good pack. Upload
when you've made the changes. See you in two months.
EDIT: The title and date of this report should always be the last
report/date that is posted. Please change to "Field Report" and "May 30,
Check back in early June for my Field Report on the Mountainsmith Boundary
EDIT: Since you have the report posted below, this sentence should be
deleted or changed to "see my report..."
This trip involved 32 miles (52 km) of hiking in three long days,
approximately 10 stream crossings, and roughly a 1.5 mile (2.42 km) total
Edit or COMMENT: Is the "1.5 mile" elevation change correct? It seems a
bit high to me.
Then I put the cookset , sleep mat, and other large items in the main body
of the pack.
EDIT: Delete the extra space between "cookset" and the comma.
I then took my headlight, thin nylon rope, personal care items, etc. and put
in one side pocket.
EDIT: Need to add "them" after "put".
Once you adjust your help belt, it stays adjusted.
EDIT: Projection. Change to "I/my" to denote your own experience.
As I carry my digital camera in a case, suspended by a carabiner I found
this to be an ideal place to hang my camera case.
EDIT: "Carabineer" - according to my dictionary.
The whistle gives a satisfying piercing cry that would be easily detectable
for quite a distance.
COMMENT: I, personally, would label this sentence projection since you
really don't know how detectable is would be for "quite a distance". I get
your point, but would suggest throwing in IMO somehow.
a backpackgeartest.com reader sent me a note suggesting that I look on the
buckle of the sternum strap.
EDIT: Capitalize "a" at the beginning of the sentence.
