Blacktop Backpacking



Found in the August 2005 issue of Backpacker.

There is a new class of thru-hikers that set out to walk every street of a major city as there goal. Some "trails" include San Francisco (850 miles of treets, alleys and steep staircases), Sydney and New York City.

I think many hikers will find a new product that is coming out really useful. It replaces the normal twist-off cap on most plastic water and soft drink bottles and provides a combination of a really elegant and ergonomic handle with an easy open/close seal.

It's called the Cap n' Carry.

For a few dollars, hikers can turn just about any disposable water or soft drink bottle into a super-easy-to-use canteen. When the bottle is no longer needed, the Cap n' Carry is easily removed and stored in pocket or backpack until the next use.

It's really well made and almost indestructible.

Hikers should give it a look at http://www.capncarry.com.

Hey Dude,

would you be interested to do it with your readers? if so, you can create a gutmeet.com meetup and invite your readers to join.

I am sure we can learn a lot from you
