© Outdoor Eyes It makes absolutely no sense to purchase a hydration pack if you don't know how to keep your hydration pack safe. Take care of your hydration pack and your hydration pack will take care of you. The following are some helpful hints and tips to help you maintain your hydration pack.
 
Mold growth and odors will appear if you don't clean your hydration pack on a regular basis.
 
Hangers:
The blue hangers displayed in the image on the right are not just another hanger. They really work well when you return home. It is exceptionally hard to dry the hydration pack out entirely unless they are totally open and have air to circulate within them. The hangers allow this to occur and they will be totally dry when using the hangers. The hangers are inserted into the hydration packs and they are hung wherever they can completely dry out.
 
Cleaning Procedure:
There are special brushes to clean the inside of the hydration pack as well as the tube. A special cleaning agent is also available to clean the inside. Baking soda can also be used (use 1 tablespoon) and let the water and baking soda mixture sit overnight. Rinse well with clean, warm water and hang up to dry using the special hangers.
 
Have fun backpacking and don't forget to take care of your hydration pack when you return from your hike.

Yellow-Rumped Warbler At Our Feeder On Cape Cod.

I saw a splash of bright yellow at our feeder and quickly got my camera. I have learned that it is better to get my camera first and get my binoculars second, as the bird might fly away quickly. (Click on blog link to see other photo.) There, at my feeder, was a beautiful Yellow-rumped … Continue reading Yellow-Rumped Warbler At Our Feeder On Cape Cod.

The Forest Is Still So Green In The Middle Of Winter Here On Cape Cod.

It’s amazing to see how green the forests are here on Cape Cod  in the middle of winter. The Bearberry leaves, which  you can see in the first photograph, still provide much green ground cover. (Click blog link to see other photo.) I just did a bit of research and found that Bearberries will lose … Continue reading The Forest Is Still So Green In The Middle Of Winter Here On Cape Cod.
