Finally got to test out the gear that everyone has helped me pick out. Not a long trip just an overnighter but still fun. Went up to the Alpine Wildernes area, lost the trail at a little over 4,100 ft due to snow so set up camp where I could. So with it being my first trip it's obviously the little guys first also, he had fun as well. He actually hiked about 4 miles on his own and on a day hike the day before he hiked 6 on his own. So somewhere near 11 miles in three days on his own, not bad for a 4 yr old. The T2 fit everything without strapping anything to the outside but was pretty dang full with 2 sleeping bags, 2 sleeping pads, food and gear.
