Hmmmm...I'd pack them in a Lincoln Navigator...Whoops, sorry, just having a flashback to my Cubmaster days.<shudder>. If I was going with young (11-12) or inexperienced Scouts I'd be planning on going fairly slowly, which means a largish pack, say 6000ci or so.With some groups I've seen,7-10 miles a day can be a major undertaking-and that means a lot of consumables, for 5-7 days...a major undertaking.
If you have experienced Scouts, and and are in condition, you could go quite light and blast it in 2-2.5 days. For that,a 3-4000ci pack would do. The real determining factor will be your Scouts, just as much as the terrain and distance.
Its easy to plan for a fast trip, but your Scouts would have to want to do it that way and be capable of it. Otherwise everybody is going to have a bad time. And they won't want to repeat that...

Dana,

If you could, share a bit of your history in the pack business.

Of course everyone knows or should know about Dana Designs.

I remember when you were doing Mojo and later Quest camera packs.

I also remember you designed a series of packs for Marmot way back. I recall looking at them when Michael had Northern Lights in the shopping center.

Then there was the Works a part of Mystery Ranch? Or a predessor?

And finally why the Mystry Ranch name?

Best,

Ed

I too want to know if/when we will see a new version of the loadmaster. I like the ventilation of externals.

I'll bite. I know that the answer might be "it depends," but overall, Dana, do you prefer Internal or External Frame packs for larger capacities (5000 ci and up, for longer expeditions both hiking and hunting)? If the answer is, "it depends," please elaborate.

I would like to know if Dana would be willing to rebuild one of his old Dana / K2 Terraplane externals? I wouldn't mind some new shoulder straps, mine have compressed down a bit and I can hual enough to make the straps dig in a bit....Burly pack...
