I bought my Camp 7 Klettersack backpack about 20 or 25 years ago and have been using it ever since. Camp 7 was the house brand of a Southern California sporting goods chain called Sport Chalet, that sold a lot of Backpacking and Climbing gear, much like REI, but wasn’t a co-op and had lower prices.
The Klettersack pack is a classic mountaineering design which I think was originally intended as a rope bag with shoulder straps. Not a lot of bells and whistles, just one big main compartment and a small second compartment in the top flap.
My bag was made in Colorado U.S.A. which should give some indication of just how old it is. I’ve only had to do a little maintenance on it over the years and I never really baby it. It’s been a great pack and I have no near future plans of replacing it.

Here she is. A blast from the late seventies: the National BF-757. A full sized 4D flashlight.

I bought it when I was still in college, and I have used it intensive till I got my first grown-up LED-light in 2011.
Not much of a modder, I have replaced the incandescent bulb for a halogen bulb and later for an XP-G2 drop-in.
That, plus the large (plastic) reflector, makes it an awesome thrower. But there is more.
With a large knob I can a place a diffuser ring around the bulb. And it is very capable of tail standing.
That’s why I still use it when I have to fix something around the house. That and an AA-light on the visor of my cap.

I always think long and hard before I say something really stupid.

Bought this motorbike at 2006, it’s been 11 years now!

I actually enjoyed public transportation a lot. Unfortunately, I can’t get decent one here in this city.
They operate up to 5-6 PM at the evening so I need my own transportation mean.

I just ride it in the city, and now 20km from home to office and back home again.

One of my important and long time possession items, here is Butterfly Mazunov FL. I have more than 50 table tennis blade but I think that only about 10 of them is really usable, this Mazunov is one of blade I trust and use a lot. I got it when I before was in midle school and a little while before the rule changed from 38mm balls to 40mm balls. I used it nearly everyday during hight school and university eventhough I felt that it’s not very suit to play with 40mm balls. Thanks for my skill, it’s still in good shape. hahaha But… too bad… lately, The rules changed again _ !! The celluloid balls replaced by plastic balls. This change made me play less and less nowadays.

Take care of your flashlight and your flashlight will take care of you.

I have a British Bulldog who is just over 11 years old. Still snoring and faring away. Doesn’t move very fast anymore, but has a clean bill of health from the vet, He’s quite old for the breed already but hope he hangs around for years to come,

I told you about my wife on cpf, but Ive had my Ford Expedition even longer. Bought it in 1999, for $19,000 with only 19,000 miles on it, but at a dealership, the same model with 35,000 miles was going for $30k. It’s still going strong, served me well, and if I could go back in time I would have treated it a lot better. Just like my wife.

On another note, my brother worked for adidas in the 80’s. I used to get sneakers, sweat suits, jackets, you name it, but believe it or not, I had socks from them that were at least 20 years old before I had to get rid of them. Now that’s quality. See you in 20 years xtar and I’ll tell you about my old s1 & b20 pilot

never fear shadows…it means a light shines nearby

I’ve owned this Kramer DMZ5000 bass since 1979. It played many local bar dates throughout the 80’s and 90’s. I still pluck away on it every once in a while. Brings back pleasant memories when I was still young.

My 2006 American Fender Jazz bass I currently play regularly.

I'm a second amendment guy all the way

My Benchmade 330 was a gift I gave myself on my first marriage about 18 years ago. The marriage didn’t last, but that knife has been with me all that time through thick and thin, rich and poor and all that. The picture isn’t mine. Photobucket and all…

Bought this Fox knife over 15 years ago, and although it never had much use, it work well asca camping knife and I still like the design.

“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”   (Gus Speth)
