    Just weighed my pack......27#s, with food and 2 liters of water. I will be shaving ounces until I get to 25#s.
    Still have to take the labels off everything and cut my toothbrush handle off. I wonder if I can put the Potted "meat" in a ziplock bag instead of the can??

    I don't know, but I'd test that re-hydrated water a lot before depending on it. I re-hydrated from a mud hole and all I got was muddy water.

    It's the most versatile material in the world. The only drawback is that it is also "unobtainable".

    Figured a good cabinet maker would have already been trying to obtain unobtainium!!

    To get back on topic, maybe we can find an old unobtainium mine in the gorge, and won't have to barter all our chickens.
