some things I have discovered over the years that may help
2 liter coke bottle tops will fit (and won't leak) most
drying a platypus bag in an oven is a bad idea.
for summer camping try putting your pad inside your bag, or
between bag and liner. this works especially well in a hammock, it also prevents you from slipping off..
of course Ive only done this with an el cheapo blue closed
cell pad... I believe that my ridge-rest would annoy me after awhile.
lipton makes noodle and rice dishes that come in bags, pack
flat and make a nice base to which I add canned chicken.
add some pita bread and you have a one pot fairly quick dinner. I substitute olive oil for butter in all my
backcountry cooking. also the bag is flammable- nothing
to pack out! (except the can of course)
favorite lunch -- underwood spreads on pita bread, (deviled
chicken, ham etc.)
Racoons are persistent.
Lets hear from every body.... what things have you discovered that have made your backcountry experiences more pleasant/easier etc. more points for creativity and originality.
