	Thanks Dave. I'll have to try that. I usually carry a little can 
of chicken (like the tuna cans) for recipes needing it. I have also 
carried a whole frozen chicken before (in wintertime with a group -- had 
some great meals plus soup)

	This works if you put it into an insulated environ -- i.e. 
stuffed inside your down vest & in the center of your pack. Just don't

while in town).
