Ode to my Backpack
This article is dedicated to my Camelbak rip-off backpack, my companion for 7 years. It is a gift from my mountaineer sister. The brand is Camelbak,but I know that this is just a rip-off.Hahaha. She got it from a close friend who owns a mountaineering gadgets shop in University of the Philippines.Yes, it is pirated,but is on par with the original one. She has been supportive with my outdoor hobby for she is a good mountaineer. She has been invited to join fed climbs all throughout the country. I am a scouter so you always find me camping or hiking with my fellow scouters. It was given to me when I was in my 2nd year college.
My backpack is just a daypack,but I use it for 2 or 3-day climb. Thanks to my good packing skill.Its colour is what I just like, a combination of blue and black. It has been my school bag since college up to now.Where has it been? Bulacan, Baguio, Pangasinan, Quezon, Batangas, Subic, Zambales, Thailand,Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, and Singapore.It never fails to keep my things safe,clean and comfortable to carry. In those places, it never gotten any tear. Then came my miniature pinscher dog. Yes,he bit and tore it just like what he did to my camera charger,3 pairs of slippers, 3 5 – meter long extension wires, 1 pair of shoes, passport, hot iron cord, and so on. My legendary backpack is still usable. I will still be using it even though I just bought a new bag. I have a new backpack that I bought to serve as a gift for myself. It is Compass 3-in-1 by High Sierra. It stands 29 inches and the colour is blue and gray. It can be carried in 3 ways which is awesome, but I have yet to see it stand the test of mother nature just like how she tested my old daypack.
