Mystery Ranch backpacks has a NICE frame that works pretty slick for hauling around everything I need for solo work. It is made by Dana Gleason, (Dana Designs guru before purchased by K2), and is super comfy.

Why didn't someone tell me my ass was this big...

hi ho,hi ho, it's off to work I go, blah, blah, blah blah...wait, it's damn dark out???

Pelican 1500 for the essentials..

Cheers,
Jeff

Awesome! What model in particular is that frame?? I was looking on the site and a little unsure. I will be picking one up for sure, my arm is still aching from hiking with the helicam in one hand and the Tx case in the other at crater lake.

Nice find,

About the ass, you probably just forgot that the 20mm was still on for the picture

Hi Craig,

I'm carrying around 25-30 pounds depending on how many extra packs I want to bring.

Tabb,

Check this link out:

It is the called the NICE frame. I called them for different colors and they had a black one ready to roll.

Cheers,
Jeff

I'm betting you wind up taking the blades off for the tough hikes.

The above shots were a quick experiment over a Bloody Mary last night. The only modification was trimming the carbon plate the cam sits on for tail boom clearence. I'll try to get some detailed pics after I finalize some webbing details.

The blades/flybar have a 1/2" clearance from the camera mount, and initial tests show no rubbing/noise.

I need to put together a proposed photo plan for this years ski season, but I think I'm going to request a snowmobile for transportation.

The pack is mainly for hikes/bike rides through lands that are restricted/unaccessable to motorized vehicles.

I have already found my special ski bunny/shred Betty.
She carries the downlink gear :-)

Cheers,
Jeff

I was thinking of doing this and then riding my mountain bike 10miles to get to the local club!

I'm not sure if it's worth the risk though. After all, I'd hate to have an accident on my bike with the helli strapped to my back, and I don't want to be pooped when trying to fly either!

Ahhh...

So the dream is finally realized.

Only took you what 2 years to get it done.

Looks great bud.
Might just have to pick one up myself.
