A dry bag that has the fold top is the shit. They sell them cheap at wall mart. Prolly easy to jack. Keep clothes dry and even fill up with water and wash your shit in there. i've hid my shit in the woods for a long time. I've even used them as a ghetto fridge by digging a hole in the ground and keeping the dry bag down there with food or drinks in there. Collected rain water with them. Love them. And cool thing is I got mine a year or so ago on sale and still have them. They have been outdoors the entire time. And better than trashbags. I got tired as fuck when I'd tear a hole in a bag and water get in and soak my shit.

way the fuck out there
dry bags are the absolute shit. i dumpstered a broken sea2summit dry/compression sack and even without the compression straps this thing is awesome. roll it up and squeeze all the air out or pop my clothes in it and they stay bone dry.

Got one I keep clothes in and use for food for 5.00. The bigger one houses my ghetto blanket hammock and a thick blanket that cost round 10.00. Figured they could also be strapped to an external backpack too.

Well here is a new very nice thing that I discovered a few weeks ago. I've been staying in a pup tent with a sleeping pad and sleeping bag instead of my usual hammock tarp setup this year. I keep all my stuff hidden when not there and was visiting my spot while burning some time and just smoking. Well my smallest dry bag I've been using for my sleeping bag. I grabbed it to use it as a quick thing to sit on since the ground was wet but I didn't feel like pulling all of my stuff out. Well turns out a sleeping bag makes one hell of a seat. And you can fix the opening with the flaps to control the air flow out of it. Its almost like a bean bag or something and works with the ground being wet as fuck. Cause these last few weeks its been wet as fuck. And that of course sorta sucks after a while.

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
