head pack dream
#1
An amusing dream early this morning.

So, in the dream, my wife and I are visiting a military base on a day it is open to the public.  There are soldiers to speak with.

We speak with a stocky African-American soldier.

He has an oval piece of canvas webbing draped over his head.  There are large, cargo-style pockets on this "head pack".

We are informed that this gear allows the wearer to carry SIXTY FIVE KILOGRAMS on his head!

...

I smiled when I woke up.  That is roughly 155 pounds -- I think one's neck would be mighty sore trying to carry that much weight close by the head.

But hey -- maybe it is the next development in load bearing equipment.  tinylaughing

Oh lordy! Now you've given the boys at Natick an idea for their next brainstorm!

.
“The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people.”

-Aldous Huxley

have you been reading or watching anything that may have had Sherpas or Porters in/on it? it's said that they can carry up to 175% of their body weight.

here are a couple of links,
NPR
How Does A Nepalese Porter Carry So Much Weight?

This one got some Good pictures, checkout the load they are carrying with just a strap warped around and over their head

What Makes These Porters So Strong That They Can Carry Loads More Than Their Bodyweight?
When I talked to God, I knew he'd understand.
He said, "Stick by me, I'll be your guiding hand.
But don't ask me what I think of you.
I might not give the answers that you want me to".

Oh Well

Pretty neat dream there. Hmmm, maybe the Army is working on something like this already? :)

@ChiefD 

I often have dreams that relate to my military service or work career.  Perhaps my mind is curious why the burning topics of those years aren't actively considered anymore  tinybiggrin
