Lighten up?

Mike at Out ‘n About shares a tip for lightening up your pack that he found at a site operated by a group called The Coalition For Portable Propane Product Safety.

I checked the other tips on the site and found they ranged from the “duh” to the “what??!!!”

Here’s one:

Pin a string to a small tent leak in the ceiling and run the string to the floor away from the sleeper’s face. Water will run down the string.”

My response in two words: duct tape.

And here’s another tip for lightening up your pack The Coalition For Portable Propane Product Safety might want to add: Don’t carry propane tanks when you backpack. They’re really heavy.
