Re: [John Muir Trail] Re: Muir Trail Ranch bucket- are glass items safe?
- After a week of dried food with another week ahead I want some
non-dried stuff for one meal. The horse that carries 20 pounds in can
easily carry a couple pounds out. I'll switch out with non-glass
salsa containers and swap wine for the hard cider. I'm 99% sure that
the 12 oz. bottles of hard cider packed in the middle of the bucket
would be safe, but the 1% risk of broken glass and liquid saturating
my food is probably not worth it.
