Emergency containers Birch bark Tip

One way to lighten your load is to carry high-calorie foods. If you need to have about 12,000 calories for a weekend trip, this could be any where from fifteen pounds down to four pounds, depending on the foods you select. Mixed nuts, for example, have almost twice the calories per pound that bread has. You still have to have some variety and you have to balance the weight savings with decent nutritional choices, of course.
Need emergency containers? Birch bark can be folded into many shapes and sizes. You can pin the folds with small sticks punched through the top edges of the containers. I have boiled water in such containers, and they could be used for collecting berries or other foods too.
