Sounds good to me. Does this mean I get into ADZPCTKO for free? By the way,

Not a problem. I've been looking for a reason to turn that guy in ever since
he and Hacker pulled that stunt where they hiked 43 miles one day just to
show up the Minnesota Milers.

I'll have to dig out my old Kelty file. The shoulder-strap attachment points
are pretty low on the pack...so even with the straps level the pack rides
high. I'm pretty sure that was part of Kelty's pack-fitting instructions.
