Simple goods for a happy fort

A life well lived.

Vince 'Trapper' Nelson. Adventurer, Hunter, Trapper and Zoo founder.

Today we celebrate the life and exploits of a man who lived well and cared little for what others thought about him. A true rogue, and the inventor of the Trapper Nelson Packboard. Nelson later collaborated with the Knes Tent & Awning Company of Vancouver, BC to create a commercially available version of his pack for fellow climbers and sportsman. We stumbled across one recently, and look forward to passing it down for continued use. See Finds for more information.
