Now that's a nice prize pack and well earned! Congrats Jake! Those boys look like they could keep you busy...and be a ton of fun. I'm surprised you haven't changed your TS name to Boom Boom though.

"Nothing is essential" kind of sounds like blasephemy on an equpment forum, but I agree with it most of the time.  In the desert water is essential.  In the cold staying warm is essential. Maybe we could say that only a few things are essential and everything else is a luxury.

Easy - horse-sized duck. If Jurassic Park has taught me anything, it's that you should be weary of the little guys in packs. Congrats!!

HEY... you can't be Boom Boom.... I'm Boom Boom. Okay.... that's a lie! I'm called "Yo Dumba**. I guess YO is my first name. No... I'm STILL lying.

On a serious note... great post/review and I'm glad you won! I agree with others about most things are really not essential other than water in the Desert and warmth in the cold country... and well good food, like a good, juicy steak, fine wine and my favorite music playing around the campfire while I dance.

Wait a minute I hate dancing and I don't drink wine... I really am full of BS today. There might be a nickname/trail name in all of this. Maybe I should call myself Full of Bull. Actually "Hersh, or is it HARSH" really does fit me best.

Again great post... hope you have lots of fun with your family.

Courtesy, respect and stewardship are essential on every BC trip; a flask of the good stuff is highly recommended.
