How to

Healthy trail mix tip

Susan Alcorn shared thusly at the Lend a Hack page:

  • Don’t Reach In, Pour It Out!
    When you are sharing GORP/trailmix and other bags of food with others, everyone should pour out what they want, not reach in. Experts suggest that improper hygiene (not washing hands thoroughly after bathroom breaks, etc.) causes many backcountry illnesses such as E-coli and Giardia.

    Susan is so right on this one! Snack size zip top bags are your friend :-) You can make one use bags this way (and still reuse those bags also many times!)
