Jack Packs Pack

Lancelot Lake at Sunset
Can a 61 year-old man who recently gained and lost 55 lbs, had ankle surgery two years ago, and has not backpacked since 2003 or even done a whole lot of walking lately, backpack into the Three Sisters Wilderness for a night without totally destroying himself?

Apparently so. And have a wonderful wonderful time, to boot.

Jack in camp, feeling mighty pleased. 

I found it easier than I expected. Surprisingly so. Already planning my next hike!
Turns out an old bicycling jersey makes a fine
hot-weather hiking shirt.
