[pct-l] peanut butter transport

[ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ]

I have been carrying 'natural' peanut butter in a plastic jar. I try to get=
 the saltless version as I prefer that in any case and the salted variety t=
ends to separate with the salt ending up in clumps near the bottom.
I eat peanut butter straight, dividing a jar into as many days as I have ti=
ll resupply. I carried two jars into the high Sierra for the 230 miles betw=
een Kennedy Meadows and Tuolumne Meadows. (Because of getting lost I missed=
 an in between stop at Vermillion.)
Another subject: After a vacation, during which I went to Burning Man (nort=
hern Nevada) I will be driving to Seattle to have a friend drop me off at W=
hite Pass, probably this Saturday. I have another 350 miles to go, which I =
expect to do in 2 weeks, though days are getting shorter and shorter.

After seeing Cupcake's promo at the ADZ, we tried the baby bottle liner
trick with peanut butter (Skippy Chunky, if it matters) on our recent
section hike in Washington. The peanut butter leaked from the liner after
having been in the pack a few days; I had enclosed it in a ziploc just in
case and was glad I did. I think that the cap system is really designed to
attach to the rigid "bottle" portion of the disposable liner system, rather
than to attach securely to the liner itself. It behaved just like the old
Gerry tubes, unfortunately. Seems like the plastic peanut butter jars are
still a better way of carrying peanut butter, or other nut butters.

Notice that I didn't say "best." ;-)

Any word from Cupcake on how he fared with the system?
