Camping Buckets

To finish off her summer vacation, Pep and a friend are going on their first Primitive Camping trip which involves a canoe and a river.  Rather than a hiking backpack,  camp recommended two five gallon buckets to store gear in.

Five gallon buckets are cheaper than a decent hiking backpack so off to home depot I went to grab two 5 gallon Homer Buckets.  The buckets were $2.97 a piece but then you have to buy the lids – so it was a little over $10 for both.

We then came home and decided they needed some color so out came the duct tape.  In hindsight, we should have used a darker duct tape because of the orange, but at least she will definitely know which two buckets are hers.   We normally put a cushion on them, but skipped it for now.  If they survive the trip, we will make seat cushions for them after she comes home.
