It appears that it requires lumberjacks in the area to be effective. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

I can just imagine trying to explain to my wife why I have a bra in my backpack It is like having your wife find a bra in the glove box in your car. .

A platpus bag is somewhat more durable, easier to explain, and you can always buy the latex safe edible coatings to add to it if you really like the taste. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

Just imagine....a "plus size" in silnylon. "Double" duty as a "double" water filtration bag too! Ultralite at it's best. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

I gotta admit, that was a very resourceful gal to get the attention of a logging crew that way!
Can you imagine the look on their faces when they saw that 'signaling device' coming down the drag cable! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Don't forget you can use it for a sling shot, too!

I've heard of some made of ram intestines,
but I've never heard of them made of platypus scrotums.

Can't see how they would be any easier to explain either. ???

So I borrowed my buddies car to go the drive-in with my girl friend <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />. Next weekend he takes his girl friend to the drive-in. He gets refreshments, she opens glove box, out falls a LARGE bra <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />and she's not - he had some explaining to do... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

LOL! I had the same experience with my SO. I was sitting at the dining table restocking my 10-essentials kit when things got ugly.

"What is THIS??! Why do you have one of THESE in your pack?? WHAT exactly are YOU DOING out there?"

"Honest honey! It's for carrying water! If I put it inside a sock or a shirt I can carry water in an emergency. Here, look at this web site..."

It took her a while to accept it, but for a while there I was thinking, "I might be stringing the hammock in the yard tonight."

BTW, don't forget that you can start a fire with one.

She would definately get the wrong idea about how you "commune" with nature <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />
