Tea of boiled juniper needles

If you have to cross streams with your shoes on, at least remove your socks. This way you'll soak up a lot less water. You can put the socks back on when you have hiked a few minutes on the other side of the stream, and your feet will dry much faster than if you had worn the socks in the water too.
Need an emergency disinfectant? A strong tea of boiled juniper needles and twigs can be used to sterilize things.
Mashed potato flakes are not only convenient by themselves, but can be used to thicken a soup if you have added too much water.More backpacking tips
