Ultralight Camp Drinkin'

'Ultralight' is the big buzzword among hikers and campers, and for good reason. As soon as you get that backpack strapped to your body, you immediately start wishing you had lighter versions of everything you own.

So what do you do if you want to end your day at camp damaging a few brain cells with the wonderful liquid known as alcohol, but you don't want to deal with the additional liquid weight?

The fine folks at Hiking Ideas have some interesting ideas involving Crystal Light, as well as a low-weight, high-gin recipe for a packable nip. And if, like me, you have a little trouble falling asleep in camp, this sounds like it would do the trick but good.

Thanks, Brian. Obviously, the site has a lot of sprucing up to do, but hopefully I'll be testing out some GPS stuff this weekend. If I don't get rained out again ...
