I strongly support Pactiv's entry into this new market.  Their high-quality, low-cost product is the cornerstone of my sub-1 LB GoDangerous MegaUltraLight Backpacking System.  It consists of a Pactiv Shell, a Snickers Bar and a fanny pack!

2 questions....

1) Is there a cord I can pull to make it inflate with helium(picture a parade float.) This would be a great way to conserve energy when on the trail. I could see them flying around the summit of Everest now.

2) When I land, can eat it?

I've got a whole list of these in my head. If I had unlimited time, we'd be the outdoors Onion on April 1st.

Some others for you:

From Outdoors Magic, Beards Better At Altitude Say Scientists

The fetus story has blown me away. The drive, the perseverance, the determination... Nothing short of amazing.

Making the summit w/o supplemental O2.... I am speechless... Congratulations young Valentine. Much deserved recognition. :)

And Alicia pulls the merino over my eyes again!  I read the whole darn thing...  Clicked on the link, thought it must be a bad link, googled it......  Great way to start the day. Thanks!
