Backpacking Tip

Always bring a little bit of duct tape with you; you never know when you might need it.

On my last trip I discovered this small leak on the bottom of my pad. Taping it up kept me from sleeping on the hard rocks. The tape on the bottom of the pad was from a few years go when a spark landed on it while snow camping.

What works well for me is wrapping some duct tape around my lip balm.
