Since getting my GR2 I’ve been able to take my camera everywhere I go. I subsequently am able to carry much more then just the items in my pockets: top left (bandana, change, Benchmade Griptillian, mini Bic w/ duct tape, money clip/card wallet, and keys on a caribiner) There is a presta/shrader valve adapter on my key ring for those days when i ride my bike, however this is my setup for the days I’m on my skateboard. In the MEC toiletries bag: 100ft para-cord, tea lights(wrapped in duct tape), some first aid essentials, shoelaces, Zippo mini measuring tape, Petzel Tikka 2 headlamp (extra set of batteries wrapped in duct tape), waterproof matches, toothbrush, Krazy Glue, Coleman Multi-tool, and a Nalgene container full of Chia seeds. Inside my GoRuck I’ve attached a Hazard4 Forward observer to the molle in the main compartment (sideways so it can be deployed like a sling pack without removing the bag from my back). Inside/attached to the Forward Observer is my Nikon D300 (or Minolta x-700), compass, Rite in the Rain, K-Way, Light my Fire knife and Tinder-on-a-rope. Other items that float around the GR2’s pockets are the GSI Glacier Flask full of Bourbon, Buck tree saw and a skate tool.
Paying to rough it, Susan and John Johnson came to Alaska after homestead and other free land had run out. They bought eight expensive acres of wilderness with a view, tenting while they built a small, handsome log house with no modern conveniences. National Geographic - June, 1975
