Is it the rugged plaid shirt? The work pants? The full leather boots? The sweet external frame pack? Trucker hat? The canteen?
Heck it is all of it! Every time I see the cover on Harriet Barker’s Supermarket backpacker I get a smile on my face. It was 1977 and baby boomers were into the height of the backpacking/outdoor craze. The book occurred at a time when convenience items for outdoors types was just starting to show up in stores. Hiker stoves were replacing camp fires and real gear was getting out there. Every year brought new advances.
Old school indeed 😀
