Possibles Bags

Daughter and Young Son are going on a Pioneer Trek for summer camp this year.  Yes, they will spend three days pulling handcarts across barren stretches of Wyoming for FUN (and inspiration)!

Truly, it is fun, in its own way, and something every young person possible ought to do at least once.

A necessary item while on trek is a “possibles bag.”  The name comes from early mountain man explorers and was intended to hold “every possible thing you might need in an emergency.”

These were constructed from Husband’s worn out jeans and will hold sun screen, chap stick, water bottle, handkerchief, snacks, extra socks and bandaids…you know, the necessities of life on the trail.

Not very exciting, I guess, but sturdy and useful.  That kind of sewing for the ones we love is good, too.
