End of the road?

the little red backpack that could.  i've traveled all over the world with this rucksack.  i find those huge backpacker ones obnoxious, so i prefer to use this more modest pack.  after a trek to Kenya and hiking up Kilimajaro, i promised myself to never carry more than i'd want to carry on my back up a mountain.  this little baby has served me well on treks of a weekend to 3 months.  but seven years of treks has left it battered - broken zipper, ripped straps...  should i replace it or channel the Cuban spirit of repairing and maintaining old things (like they do with those old classic American cars!)?

I just got back from an amazing journey!  I backpacked across Cuba!!!  Havana, Santiago, Baracoa, Trinidad, then back to Havana.  It was breathtaking.
