Kelty Fury 35 Final Update

I was hoping to have some longer hikes using the Kelty Fury 35 but my knee has been slow to heal.  As a matter of fact, I may have damaged it a little by doing some work that involved a lot of ladder climbing a few weeks ago.  It is now sore again and I’m walking with a slight limp that had disappeared before the work off of the ladder.  The weather for most of December, January and February also made it tough to get motivated to do much hiking.  The upshot of all this is that I have only managed 4 overnight trips  and the one long day hike I mentioned in my last update.  To read the rest of the update along with the entire review please click here.
