    Hello there,

    I’ve been lurking around a bit on the forums since last year, thought is was about time I introduce myself!

    Sooo, I’m Anna and I live in central Sweden (Östersund), close to some of my favourite mountains. Been hiking since forever but started to really transition into lightweight/ultralight backpacking after I did my first thru-hike two years ago (south island Te Araroa). Found the forums when I started dabbling a bit in MYOG last spring after getting obsessed with the idea of making my own backpack. I (and the pack) then hiked the PCT, and now I am back inside again since two months dreaming about new hikes and MYOG-projects.

    Have also done a lot of skiing but very little winter camping so far, so that’s a bit of an objective this year, so I don’t have to wait another four months to sleep outside again

    Hi Anna. Perhaps you could dive right in and post a picture of your MYOG pack? I for one, would love to see it.
