You got that right Pete...pfredricks wrote:I think the folks that replied to this thread are all the people that I would love to go backpacking with. Matt is even classy enough to bring enough wine to share willingly.
I think my flask is the only thing I might turn around to go get if I got out on the trail and realized I forgot it.
Don't think I'd go that far...tent? probably wont rain
stove? I can use the campfire
gloves? I'll use my extra socks
food? I remembered my creamer
Map? It's this way right?
I'm not much of a vino drinker myself, but friends of mine rave about those bottles and how good the wine tastes opposed to a "weak bladder".matt gilbert wrote:Tom, I checked into those metal containers and apparently wine causes them to corrode at a greatly accelerated rate. Besides if you fill the resevoir full enough it won't slosh anyway.
Sigg is a big manufacturer. I have a 1.5 liter jug you can test out if you want. Not real sure what the biggest bottle they make is. I don't use it for my usual elixer. Who cares if it ferments further...matt gilbert wrote:well Tom your friends couldn't be wrong, so maybe I'll have to give it a try anyway.
So whats the biggest sized metal container they make...
As a sort of joke I hauled a 750ml Merlot to Tapeats Creek last month. Glass bottle, cork, and all. Sure it was heavy. Sure I had to haul it back out. Sure I had to re-engineer my packing sequence to fit it. But you should have seen the jaws drop when I pulled that baby out. I felt something in the presentation would have been lost if I had transferred it to another container. Sometimes living well requires a little extra effort which made the partaking all the sweeter.matt gilbert wrote:Tom, I checked into those metal containers and apparently wine causes them to corrode at a greatly accelerated rate.
