If you have a back, then you probably need a Deuter Futura 28.
This thing is the best small backpack you could possibly imagine. I'm on a year long trip around the world right now, and this is my sole piece of luggage.
What makes it great?
Around this time last year I asked for readers to fill a survey. One hundred and thirty people participated and really helped me understand what readers are looking for.
I used to be obsessed with getting a lot of readers, but I've been thinking lately that connecting with my existing readers is a lot more important. This stems partly from the nagging feeling that people who come here aren't getting everything they want out of the experience. Still, they're coming back, which means that they probably feel like I have the ability to deliver it.
So this year's survey is to help me understand better what BTYB means to people. I've kept it as short as possible in the hopes that many people (that means you!) will take the time to fill it out. Feel free to write one sentence or pages,I will give every submission my full attention and consideration, and I often make changes based on a single person's opinion.
