Reverse Reservoir

Post by joebartels » Jun 22 2005 7:01 pm

Hopefully aside from the "you moron" replies sure to arise somebody will find this info useful.

I love hiking all seasons and summer is definitely in the top four :wink:
However, there was one subtle annoyance...
I freeze my camelbak reservoir about half way as I'm sure most do in the summer. That big block of ice on my back was a tad uncomfortable in the beginning of my hikes until it melted down. If I remembered before the hike I'd crack the sucker in half so it would hinge in the middle.

So I get home a few nights ago from a hike and as I pull out the reservoir I noticed it was in backwards. My first thought was dang I'm glad I didn't notice that big old valve digging in my back. Then on second thought I realized I didn't have that uncomfortable ice block feeling.

Man this getting old thing ain't so bad, forget a few things & solve a few things :)

You may have had it in backwards #-o , but at least it was right side up..
I guess that it's merely "early-stage" CCD*.
