Packs Are Back!

Perhaps you remember What the Dog Did.  In short, she ripped apart the hip pocket on my husband's pack and tore the corner of the pocket on my pack.  Osprey has an "All Mighty Guarantee" where they claim to repair or replace a pack for any reason (other than normal wear and tear) and at any time.  True to their guarantee, Osprey had me ship the packs to them and claimed 2-3 weeks from the time they receive them we would have them back.  And 3 weeks nearly to the day, we had packs. My husband received a shiny new replacement pack.  The damage was too much to fix.  I, on the other hand, got my pack back with a repair on the corner.  I'm good with that, except I discovered a small hole in the pocket and a hole in the material attaching the hip belt to the mesh backing.  Since you can't repair things yourself, and the two holes are relatively tiny, I'm going with duct tape.  If they become a problem, I'll see about sending it back, but for now, I just want to get on the trail.

Tomorrow I'm heading out for my first official hike since being treated by the chiropractor (Butt Whacker).  I've already been back to kick boxing and haven't had much problem there, so I'm hoping the hike goes well.  I get reevaluated on Wednesday to see how to progress from there.  Hopefully, I'll be able to start planning a weekend overnight in the near future!
