      cheap (but large) bear/river barrels

Picked this up at the army surplus store near Charles & 20th in Rockford Il a couple weeks ago for $10. Has a screw on lid with a rubber seal, air/water tight and made of food grade HDPE. I'd guess around 10 gal capacity, fits in my Battle Lake Grand Portage pack with room to spare (we were base camping). Assuming they still have some in stock, but when they're gone they're gone. I'm stopping by there next week to pick up another one, will see how many they have left and report to the board.

That's a good deal on that barrel. I looked at those on ebay but they were a little too big to fit into my food pack.
