emergency whistle

Need an emergency whistle? The pith can be pushed out of the branches of elderberry bushes to hollow them out. These are often made into whistles by kids. Don't suck on them, though. Elderberry can be somewhat toxic.
Don't put tents in the washing machine. It is too rough on them. You can wash it in the bathtub, but it may be even better to set it up outside to wash it. That way you can also let it dry properly.More backpacking tips.
