Now THAT is a BIG Pack

When you trek in Nepal, most hire porters to carry your packs...at least I did. I only had to carry a small day pack that held my camera and my water...and even with that small pack, it was a challenge going up and down the Himalayan trails.

But these guys were amazing...I don't know how they walk for hundreds of miles with bare feet and a strap around their head carrying everything from baskets to refrigerators up and down steep hills...it really is unreal...

You call that big? That's about the size of my Ex's small purse... ;)
You should have seen the large one.
