Repurposing in the Wilderness

This past weekend I had the opportunity to spend some quality time outside in the Gates of the Mountains Wilderness. I stretched my legs and then my brain when my hiking partner (and fellow Energy Corps member) Darcy realized her spoon was still at home. Rather than carving a spoon from wood, we discovered that a folded Recycle Montana business card does a great job of scooping up food. Keep this in mind as an ultralight backpacking tip!
