Just dropping another note to let ya'll know that I'll be showing up at 8AM Saturday morning.  I have 2 radios, if I can remember to get them.  I'm making a lunch dash to Oshmans to see if I can find a camelbak.  OH and instead of all high protein snacks, I'm bringing CHOCOLATE, for a pick-me-up!  :o 

Can anyone tell me if the camelbak will fit under a backpack very well? 

As far as puzzles, I'm horrible at them so I usually skip them, but I'll see what I can come up with on this one.

I can't wait for Saturday, See ya'll then!  ;D

Camelbaks are usually backpacks with a bladder in a pocket. If you already have a pack and just want something for water you could get the "Unbottle" bladder. Its the same thing as the regular bladder that you would find in any "camelbak" like backpack but has an abrasion resistant covering and insulated. They are kind of expensive though. As others stated though. It doesn't have to be a camelbak product. You could most likely find a generic bladder at walmart for a few bucks and slide it into you backpack.

I asked my husband  (camelbacks are part of the military uniforms now and worn daily)  he said those that are regular camelbacks not designed as backpacks fit over your backpack or even better inside your back pack

  That is how I wear mine, under my backpack. With the thing stuffud full of ice it will give me a couple hours with cold water, and keep my back cool at the same time.

3 Words:

Water! Ibuprophen! Radios (FRS)

When you think you have enough water. Bring about a third to half as much more. TRUST ME.

Make sure that last person has a radio. Nobody wants to go back lookin'.

We took 7.5 hours which included a break for lunch, D. B. Cooper, and getting lost.  I predict you will be at the cars by 3:30 pm.

I suppose you will average less than 2 MPH.  I reset the trip data on my second go round and the average speed was around 3MPH.  That was with all of us trying to keep our speed at 4mph or so.  But we stopped for lunch, and trying to cross the rivers without getting wet (note to self: next time, use the Muddy Buddy technique), and having lunch, and climbing archery stands, and... uh, caching.

You'll have a lot of fun, and moreso if you don't sweat the speed (or lack thereof).

I wish I were going.  :'(
