What equipment do you use? This summer I will be looking for some good hiking shoes and a backpack. I have really bad ribs. Last time I used a pack I had to give it to someone else becaue my ribs popped out of place and hurt like an SOB! So I need a pack that will place the weight not on my ribs. Also Tyler and I will be buying a nice light weight tent that has to fit at least 2 adults and 2 dogs. And we also need a sleeping bag for me. The nights ontop of the moutians can get quite cool. GO!
