Looks like everything is packed on top of the pack, he must have his portable "kitchen sink" inside the pack! :lol:

It's funny to watch it. The video still doesn't do it justice. He can hardly stand up under
the pack, and He sways when He walks. Then a Man in a Bear Suit chases Him for His trail mix.

You can watch the show on youtube if You want. The show is about Drying fruit on a 20" box fan.

Part 1:

Part 2 has the pack about half way through:

Wish I had thought of that before I bought my dehydrator! LOL!

Darren... the taste of the food.... I remember seeing something on Discovery once the nomads actually made biscuits out of camel dung. They must make one hell of a gravy to cover up that taste!!! :mrgreen:

It's the pinnacle of UL hiking! You put your gear on the camel and the camel carries less weight because you eat its poo for dinner. :shock:

I have always wondered where they came up with the idea for Metamucil!!! Camel Jockey runs back to group "Guys with this orange flavoring you can't even taste the dung!!!!" :mrgreen:

I always wondered why they put a photo of a camel on a pack of cigaretts. They even smoke the dung, that's why they made you choke when you inhaled the smoke, arghhh yuck!!!!
