Is that a canister or one of those bottled water bottles that goes in the water dispenser? Foul!
Piece of cake.

I had my wife pick it up for me at REI on her way home from work and thats what she said. When I pulled it out of the box she just stood there for a second then said " I just paid $70 for a D##n Sparkletts Jug" :-k

but that would not be SIBBG approved and have a slightly narrower mouth :D

I would have one of those BV500 jugs for sale, if anyone wants to carry it. Used once, still a PITA to open. Need to get me two more Bearikades for this summer, but I'm holding out for a bit because I'd rather get two Ursacks


"March 5, 2009
There has been some movement in Ursack's lawsuit against federal officials. The parties and their lawyers met in San Francisco on February 27, 2009. Some progress was made, but at this time there is no determination if Ursack will be approved for use in Yosemite National Park, Sequoia and King's Canyon National Parks, or Inyo National Forest in 2009. All parties are continuing to work toward a prompt resolution. Updates will be posted here as appropriate. "

Where was that taken, Mike? Looks like a great place, wherever it is!

Bill, look at the jagged peaks to the right of the can, they should be a dead give away!

That's what's frustrating me! It all looks maddeningly familiar, mostly like the Minarets area, but I just cannot place the lake, and the peak behind the lake on the left side looks remarkably like University Peak, a hundred miles or so to the south! So, I confess I'm stumped and will no doubt feel extremely stupid when I find out... :(
