Single Serve Satchets

Post by taipan821 » Fri Jun 16, 2017 8:17 am

I'll link a topic from another forum here
http://bushwalk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=25828

does anyone here have solutions that hasn't been covered? are there single serve satchets for other things?

I saw a guy on a bushcraft cooking site use straws. He fills them with whatever he wants from dry powder, to mustard and hot sauce. Seals them at the ends with a lighter. Cut one end, pour or squeeze the contents out, and packs away if empty, or reseal then with the lighter.

Personally I use plastic bottle caps that I cut off under the ridge part and epoxy them together. They hold quite a bit of dry goods, and just enough for a single use or if you use the larger lids, enough for 2-3 uses.

Looks like they mentions straws a lot on the bushcraft thread in the OP. I've had a few friends who have done this (not so much for survival purposes, but for trips with kids to the beach/park/etc) and it worked well. You can also use it for single applications/emergency packs of things like sunscreen, toothpaste, etc.

I liked in the bushcraft thread they mention using the heat bar on a vac sealer to seal the straws...as I have one and for some reason I am like a small, silly child with most lighters and burn my fingers. Also, I would think you could seal more than one straw at the same time, which is nicer than having to do each one individually, especially if you are making a large number at once.
