    I need some help figuring out how to take advantage of the bet that I won with my brother. We had a bet, which I won, where Loser of the the bet has to carry something on our next backpacking trip that the winner gets to pick. The rules are that it can't weigh more than 5 lbs and it has to be something that we can both enjoy. Our wove will ask be going along and maybe a few others so group use is not out of the questin.

    Any good ideas?

    #1 on those steaks. I vote for rib eye.

    BTW, I once walked 3 miles back to an Indian Reservation at the head of the French River (Ontario) to buy steaks that my buddy had forgotten and left on his kitchen table. (Being a bachelor he had a stinky kitchen when he returned 10 days later.) But our canoe trip continued with happy paddlers once we cooked those steaks!

    Couple of beers gets my vote. A can of beer weighes 13oz.~ So 4 beers (52 oz.) leaves about 28oz.~ for a small cooler and ice.
    ......what a great bet!
