I am planning a backcountry trip with a friend and we are looking at food currently, particularly food storage. We will be going for 5 nights/6days and will need enough food for two people.
The guy at the camping/outdoor store recommended a dry bag to store food inside the backpack. We are planning on putting food in ziplok bags and then putting it in the dry bag.
We picked up a dry bag that is 30 litres.
- Do you think this (30 litres) is sufficient space to store food for two for the length of time we will be out for (5 nights/6 days)?
- Is an odour proof bag required? Will the smell of the food seep into the backpack or the other gear?
