    Dear Friends and Ultralight Enthusiasts,

    it is finally time to continue the long tradition of LAUFBURSCHE-gear under our new label HUCKEPACKS. From 27.10.19 onwards we will be available again with our ultralight gear.

    But it was necessary to work off some importants tasks before:

    Survive cancer. Check!
    Endure chemotherapy. Check!
    Prevent that they amputate both of my legs. Check!
    Prove doubters wrong that I can walk on a prosthesis. Check!
    Learning to live again. Check!
    Find the strength and the courage to revive my cottage. Check!


    My big thanks again to everybody who supported me and gave me the strength to overcome these hard, dark times! Without your help I would not have done it!

    We'll be back at soon. Stay tuned!

    I was not aware of you or your situation before a friend mentioned you and your website a week or so ago.

    All I can say is your story and others like will inspire others and give them the drive to carry on.

    Hats off to you and glad your doing well!

    ATB, Dave

    Thanks. We'll relaunch at the 27. Oktober. So God will ;)

    @Dave V
    Thanks a lot! It would be nice to inspire in this case. Everyone has to fight their fights. If the spirit is right, nearly every thru-hike is possible!

    Well done; it's impressive to get through it (mostly) intact
    I've managed 4 on your list..... And sometimes feel that I'd like new legs (today for example after a 1500m descent).
    Good luck in your rekindled venture (both life and work).
