Anyone know any good hiking near southern alabama?

ground sheets
there is also the ground sheets from gossamer gear and i think MLD has some as well. any drop cloth for painting from a hardware store will also work.

Re: press fit
Nope, no tools. Just stretched it over the bottom of another can and then fiddled with it until I could manage to fit it over. Not the best photos, but all I have at the time.

yep, pressing the two together creates a really tight seam. i even had a place in mine where there was a little fold and it still held water just fine
