   So it turns out there's no real water in camp. Doh. So now we have to go find some, here's the start of the water-less dayhike to find water. We did stash the Tecate (only the best for us) in some muddy water before we left to cool off.

   f*king bear tramped in through our camp and ate our beer cans. The place reeked like beer. Do you know how heavy beer is? And to think we carried it all this way so the bear could smear it everywhere...doh... at least we found a couple he missed. Oh yeah, apparently bears don't like the taste of TP : )
