Great point!! Where I was camping there were steel bear caches, I guess I didn't mention that. But yes, I agree evo190, NEVER KEEP FOOD IN YOUR
TENT!! Even at your house, trying out the tent, DO NOT EAT IN IT! Even if you clean it, it's not worth the risk.
Another thing I thought of, prompted by your post... If you are bringing meat, try to avoid raw steaks. First off, they are a pain to cook, and
secondly it's just tempting fate. Bring tinned meat, or non-flavored and (perhaps) salted jerky (dried meat ^.^). First off, the tins don't smell
until you open them, and you can wash or burn them clean pretty easily. Steak smell and blood just sits around... plus it is quite heavy. if you are
making jerky (I did on another trip last year), the ratio of water to weight is about 1:10. Meaning, you loose 90% of the steaks mass by sucking out
the water. So instead of a 200 grams, you only have 20 - and can take 10 steaks for the "price" of one!
Sunscreen, too!! Coconut scented is rather powerful.... lol

Could you further explain this parallel? It sounds quite interesting! By pointing the logs all one way... do you mean you had a long row of fire?
Wow! I have never run a rapid... could you tell me what it is like? In a worst-case scenario, I might want/have to run down the Frasier... What would
be the best tips for running rapids? Thanks!

Wow! Was the tipi warm? Moldy? I have always wondered, because all the ones I drive by at the camping grounds around here (oh for the joys of tourist
attractions)... they were all moldy-looking. Is that from lack of care? They were canvas... is that right?
True - I would LOVE to go self-sufficient. (Am working on it... *waits patiently for the time to come*). But this trip really was for fun, not
And I like my food. Maybe in the future (Hopefully in the future. But not in a provincial park. Then I could try

Ah, yes... the proverbial kitchen sink. It kinda got lost between my house and there... *looks* Not too sure where it went

Oh! I did NOT know that. *checks* It seems that a carbon filter would reduce the amount... I am not sure if mine has a carbon filter. But that is good
to know. Thanks you! You have just (potentially) saved my life :O
Great tip - Thank you for that. *notes down - look for dead wood ON the tree*
