Cool project from Ken!
"It has worked great, even better than I envisioned.
I added a couple sidebars, and on one, attached a WWII shovel, I originally bought surplus, as a kid right after the war. That worked so well, I still had 4 connectors on hand, so I made another improvement. I added two bars with a couple of of original ruck sacks across the front. Perfect for extra equipment and still have plenty of room for Desi! You have a fantastic product!"- Ken
