    C'mon... go big!



    Or just stuff a 5-liter mini-keg in your backpack... It could double as a bear canister...

    Beer Keg Gumbo Pot.

    Didn't think about the Beer Canister (only a few black beers down in south LA), but I have built a custom Gumbo pot out of one.

    Trimmed out the interior of the top and side cut the bottom off of a second mini keg to use as a lid. Even used the spent gas charge cylinder from inside the keg to make a pocket alcy stove. The pot works great with a high output propain or liquid fuel stove for large soups and stews, or hometown Cajun gumbo for those cool nights with a larger group. Would post pics, but it will be a few more weeks before I'm States side and home again.

    I guess adding a few latches to it would wrap up a nice beer canister.

    you trail angels out there pay attention to this......
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    Check the suspension!

    He doesn't even have to leaf forward one bit! Better than an Arn pack.
