comment In Canada, does a frontcountry campground kitchen shelter typically include a freezer?

another 'cool' trick is to bury your food (simply dig a hole, insert the food container or bags) you can close it using either a plank or using branches, leaves and dirt.

comment Splitting up weight hiking as a couple/mixed gender group
In all my years at scouting we've always done the same thing: first split evenly, walk a 1 or 2 kilometers and see how everyone is doing, then divide and continue for the day. We often see people complaining the first 5 minutes but as they adjust to it they're fine.
