Jerry, I seems I'm cursed with the the same affliction as you. "You never know, I might need this ITIS". Yes, it's a curse being weighed down by all this extra stuff. I've always had it. My hunting packs were always way too heavy. It takes some of the enjoyment out of the trip but I still can't seem to leave it all behind and just hope for the best. Part of it stems from me believing that most people just wing it and are not prepared for any problems and so I have to be prepared for them so the ride won't be compromised by their breakdown or lack of preparation. (i.e. rain gear on the Boonville ride.) I don't begrudge them. I'm more than happy to help them out. My efforts would be wasted if my help were never needed. It makes packing all that stuff for the next trip a little easier I guess.
Beauty is as beauty does.
If it works good, it's beautiful.
