Backpacking pillow

Running for the bushes? Tea made from the roots of blackberries, raspberries and their relatives can stop diarrhea. Fill the bottom of a cup with the cleaned and shredded roots and pour boiling water over them. Steep for five minutes before drinking.
Lost your pack? A simple way of making a backpack is to use a jacket, if it is warm enough to get by without wearing it. Zip it up, cinch the bottom shut if it has a drawstring and tie the ends of the sleeves to each other. You can then carry things in it by slinging it across your body diagonally, switching shoulders from time to time.
Want an backpacking pillow? Use a heavy-duty ziplock bag filled not too full with air. Put it inside a sweater or something else soft for comfort.Camping and the outdoors.
