Hey Fed, am still working on the modification to the backpack so I can
hitch the shled there...I might use the gelgoog's back clamp for it,
drilling a hole into the backpack, placing that, then clamping the shield
to it. It might be an easier thing to do than make a Gyan style armbrace
for the shield.

I am NOT a starving writer.
