“Packing a substantial water carrier to replenish your bottles can be a bind and take up valuable space and weight. I am a wine buff. recently a guy brought a box of wine to my home, we emptied it and he pulled out the bladder . Eureka!
I washed out the bladder pulling out the tap and by holding a coffee filter over the opening, submersing it into a creek, pond, water body etc, I collected 5 liters of debris filtered water ready for purification. A great reservoir of water at the camp site. The bladder folds away to less than 2 square inches and weighs less than 3 ounces! to top it off it was free and fun acquiring it ! Happy Hiking”
“recently a guy brought a box of wine to my home, we emptied it and he pulled out the bladder . Eureka!
You drink wine out of a bladder!?!”
Box wine bladders have been used by ultraliters for many years.”
Tell me the truth, that are those pouches they produce at blood donors clinics, right?!”
“Silnylon water bags are my water carrier of choice in camp.
“I have one like that, only it's urethane coated. Works great.”
“Third vote for the water bags....”
“i've done the same with the boxed coffee you get at the bagel/doughnut places”
“do any of the water bags have spouts?...i don't believe i've seen one with one”
That's just crazy!!!!!!”
“So is boxed wine!!!!!”
“That's the joke, Euro.”
“boxed coffee is fresh brewed coffee that's just put in a box, no different than a cup
boxed wine, is a different story
“No spouts on the bags..you filter water out of them.....although I have never had a problem just grabbing the bottom and pouring water over the rim.....(I put out my campfires that way).”
“Euro, just for you!
they come in indivual box/bottles too!
oh, and if you think boxed wine is so gross...what do you think of wine with the screw off caps instead of Corks?!”
“thrifty, as ST said, you can pinch the bottom and lift and it will form a crude spout out of the top rim.”
“Daaaaamn there stovie.....Euro, that MD 20/20 is not really wine, it is formaldahyde!
we use it here in the US to pickle the brains of the unsuspecting poor.....”
“what do you think of wine with the screw off caps instead of Corks?!
Well, it should be cork, of course. A screw off cap is just so permissible.
What does MD 20/20 stand for?”
“That's one Mad Dog!”
“Isn't Swiss wine packaged as in Suyper Troll's post?”
Isn't Canadian wine packaged as in techntrek's post??”
“I don't drink a lot of Canadian wine, but I've bought or two.”
