Backpacking Vignette


Does your gear hang low
Does it wobble to and fro
Did you tie it to your pack
Did you tie it down below

Does it drag on every boulder
Is it more than you can shoulder
Does your gear hang low?


Sometimes I like to listen to music as I hike, but ever since my earbuds broke I’ve had to resort to making up my own songs… Often hiking related variants of old camp songs… Watching all the weekend backpacker’s hiking out from Carson Pass Inspired these verses.


No, my gear packs high
Keep on piling towards the sky
Rather have it up on top
And not bouncing on my thigh

Sure it catches in the trees
Sure it brings me to my knees
But my gear packs high
