    This thread has made me laugh. Just had to chime in and say that. POS-Doctork! Too funny! I can appreciate the cross over straps from another well endowed woman. I also have a few of those pictures hidden somewhere! Thanks for the chuckles Everyone!

    For years I LOVED my Baggallinni! Then I had three vertebrae in my neck fused and can no longer carry anything heavy. The next year I did a fanny pack...NOT working. So last year I got a smaller cross body bag from Serendipi D . (Minnie Styled) Perfect, loved it... But I only carry a few items.

    Good luck in your search.

    Yea, that's probably why I've never been a fan of the cross-body style. It looks like a freakin' highway through the mountains!
    I don't have that problem

    We used those free drawstring bags you get at running events and those worked great. Very light and easy to carry and open.

    BTDT unfortunately. If the chest pain is that bad and feeling like a heart attack (pressure, tightness, shortness of breath, sharp pain, etc) then you've likely got some esephogeal (sp?) spasms going on. Those hurt like a son-of-a-b**ch and feel EXACTLY like heart attacks are described.

    With the symptoms you've described in the past and now and other things I think I'm remembering you've said, I really do think it would probably benefit you to give a gluten and dairy free diet a try for a good solid month.

    Oregon, it's the ridge to the top of Mt. Scott above Crater Lake. Where in Wyoming? We love high desert hikes!

    This is what I use when DH and I go - we don't have kids, so I'm only ever carrying my phone, travel wallet, DH's wallet, camera, light sweater/jacket and bandaids. We save souvenir-shopping until the end of the day/trip so we're never carrying too much around.

    You guys are cracking me up! Yes, that's FOUR laughing icons. Best part: my daughter heard me laughing and she said, "Are you on those Josh boards again?" Five years old--starting her young!

    Agreed! I have a baggallini messenger bag in tan/khaki that I really love. I can pass it to DH without any issues. Not too big, not too small. Can be worn cross body, but I usually sling it over my left shoulder.

    I had no idea LeSportSac was still in business! If I get one of those I'll have to dig out my "blondes prefer gentlemen" custom tee shirt, my San Francisco Riding Gear jeans, and my Candies shoes to wear with it.

    I'm debating if I want to bring my CamelBack this trip. It has pretty decent storage, is smaller than my go to park backpack and gets lighter as the day progresses. It is also skinnier than the backpack.

    Now a problem with backpacks for us guys is it can make our man girls look bigger than we like ;)
    Sorry about the visual there.

    For some reason I don't like backpacks for the parks, can't remember why but I know I have tried and it just didn't work out. I prefer cross-body style bags and have tried multiple kinds but they never seem to sit "right." Either cutting into my neck, awkwardly splitting the not very large "girls", or I am constantly readjusting. Does anyone else have this problem and what have you found to work?

    Fannypack?
    :)

    Is your cross body bag big? I've found that a small cross body feels better. Or maybe a linger strap?

    Great post! I have a Baggallini Messenger Bagg that I bought from one Kings Lane a few weeks ago to use for our upcoming (first!) trip. It looks like a great size, but I don't have first hand experience with it.

    I love the highway/mountain comment. I've BTDT but thankfully "altered" the mountains years ago. Best thing I've ever done for my body! :)

    I make my kids carry their own EpiPens in their own fanny packs. That way if they end up going somewhere with DH, I know their EpiPens go with them. Plus we always carry a minimum of 2 twin packs (one Epi Jr and one regular), plus the two with Epi in their fanny packs also carry inhalers and a spacer. And there's the Benadryl, too. And the oral prednisone pills individually wrapped in foil, just in case.

    I still have a double stroller, so I just use a large shoulder bag with a zipper for my bag. I find it's easiest to carry if it's a lot larger than it needs to be, but I have to resist the temptation to put too much stuff in it. I'm definitely in the crowd that has to avoid the cross-body bags.

    Wish I could justify the cost of "alteration". I'd love to change these mountains to hills.

    Fortunately my insurance covered mine! Only had to pay the deductible ($100).
