Post before the weekend
This is Behemoth. Her colour gives the game away; I bought Behemouth in the 1990s wanting a backpack that could carry all my backpacking and rock-climbing gear. As the decades have passed my pack size has shrunk and Behemoth gathered dust in the attic.
Occasional forays into daylight saw her working as a “haul-sack” on those occasions when I needed to lug around a big load. Supermarket shopping and trips to the beach became her usual fare.
With the Summer Solstice #microadventure coming up, I thought it would be time to get Behemoth out once more. Weighing in at a rather portly 2.7 kg – unloaded – her last outing took place on June 21st 2014, when she carried our gear for our most excellent Dad and Lad Microadventure.
But since then she has sat in the loft waiting for this day of days. But this may change soon, with the approach of the epic 2015 “Dad and Lad, Mum and Lass #micoadventure” to see in the summer Solstice of 2015.
