An Encounter with Fred
Joe Josephson phoned with an interesting proposal: Fred Beckey had come to town for a reunion of Montana's Dirty Sox Club, a guild of Montana climbers from the 1960s through the 1980s.

CiloGear W/NW Dyneema 60 WorkSack Review
When I heard of a pack so tough that the maker called it an "heirloom pack, something you can hand down to your grandkids," I was intrigued. Then, when I learned that the pack weighed 40 ounces with a lid, hip belt and "frame," I was hooked and had to take it to the mountains. The pack is a CiloGear W/NW 60L WorkSack (woven Dyneema outer, non-woven Dyneema inner) and the frame is light as air … well almost.
