    GPS? Water / Gatorade? saw? Gloves? Binos?

    You pack light young grasshopper! Then again it all depends on how far into the woods I'm heading. If I'm going in a few 100 yards then I could care less, a 1/2 mile or more and its a different story.

    I eat snacks in my stand regularly. Snack Packs, Oreo's that are wrapped 4 to a pack, cheese/crackers that are pre-wrapped from Sam's Club, small orange juice bottles that are pre-packed, hot soup from a wide mouth thermos, etc... That's one of the reasons why my pack is so over-stuffed when I head out.
    I'm trying to figure out a way to hang my pack on my climber so I can put the climber on my back. One of my friends suggested carabiner clips. I tried that but it makes too much noise while your walking. Right now I put my pack on my back and carry the bow in one hand and climber in another hand.

    usea short peice of cord to tie your pack off to your stand.....or when you tie the 2 peices of the stand together if its a summit there is always strap left over on those great aligator starps......

    I have an Ameristep non-typical auminum climber. It's pretty light.

    Good suggestion by the way about the long strap.

    What I was able to do is sandwhich the pack between the top and bottom climber halves. The strap they give you is about twice the length you need. Putting the pack between the halves worked great.

    I agree with radar it does seem like a little much, climbing stand, back pack, bow with quiver on, I found out real quick I didn't need half the junk in the bp. and will try to travel lighter next time out, I am also kinda old, and suffer from to disk problems, I feel some of this is trial and error, and what works for you may not for me
