What is this counter balance method you speak of?

Once the Circus Peanuts start fermenting I get a bit wobbly on the trail.

Will the counter have the kitchen sink installed? Might as well pack one of those in too.

How much does it cost to rent a Llama? :thinking:

The counterbalance method is where you attach a second pack to the front of you to counterbalance the weight of the pack on your back. You'll find this handy when carrying all of our camera gear. :D

The cost is a lot more than we can afford. :(

That's a LOT of effort for one photo. Dedication or insanity or maybe both. But then, the old-timers like Jack Dykinga carried those darn things all over the place. There's a guy on Youtube still doing it and making movies of it—kind of ironic.

Glutton for punishment. I knew that trail was there but knew what would be there after the 88 fires........ even I couldnt find a old horse trail in that so I never attempted it.

The efficacy of the counterbalance method cannot be denied.
