On a side note since then I have also switched away from mtn house and do all real food with no other problems but I don't think it would matter mice probably aren't too particular. Have fun though man I am jealous!
    Uh yeah that was my food bag. It was funny how the hole went straight through the bag and into the food. I could've stuck my thumb up into the larabars or whatever it was they ate. I was amazed they could cling onto the underside of a slick silnylon bag, way up in the bear hang.

    That was pre lara bar days before the current paleolithic times so it was probably oatmeal cream pies or some such soy laden, testosterone killing, gluten filled poison which is why the rats wanted it

    It's at a Big Bend in the road - Church of the Holiness - maybe we can go sometime? I hiked out too late on Sunday to make the service.
