Camp Packs

When you intend carrying your belongings and striking the trail either

part or all the way to camp, the easiest method for portage is to stow

the things in a regular pack and fasten the pack on your back by means

of strong, long straps attached to the pack, and passed over your

shoulders and under your arms.

A square of water-proof canvas makes a simple and good camp pack. Get a

nine-by-nine-feet (more or less) square of cloth, and it will be found

useful as shelter, fly, ground-cloth, windbreak, and in other ways after

reaching camp.
