I have a bit of an odd situation. I went through the forums and I couldn't really find another topic that dealt with this, but nothing really fit correctly. In sum, I'm planning to be on the road for a few months without stopping back home. I'm intending to travel the country (all 50 states if I can make it) and I'm not going to be driving myself, so I want to carry everything I should need. I could be on a bus, train, car, or just hoofing it to get around. I'll regularly be in urban areas, but I may still be out in the middle of nowhere, too. Given that, the bag should really be willing to endure a lot of abuse from most any type of climate. I'm intending to do a lot of writing, so I don't really need room for a camera (my smartphone should be sufficient for most pictures/videos I'd want to take) and, for safety/weight reasons, I'm going to avoid bringing my laptop with me. Just clothes enough for two-three months of travel and room for notebooks and some food and water. Finally, if at all possible, I'd love to be able to use the bag long after taking the trip as it's not exactly something I am intending to repeat (not a multi-month trip, at least). I was looking at Maxpedition backpacks and the Falcon II seems like it could be a good fit. Are there any better packs out there for what I would need that I'm overlooking?
