Starting prepping my cornish game hen tonight, realized I had no kitchen string to tie the legs together. What's a backpacker to do?

"I've used sewing thread...."

I saw that mentioned online, but I don't have any! Sadly, I'm not a MYOGer. Also mentioned online was unwaxed, unflavored floss, which I don't have, kite string, which I don't have, and tampon string, which I don't have.

Doug,

I am a little disappointment you did not utilize multiple use tactics by using dental floss. Dental floss would not only hold in your dressing but would add a nice minty flavor to your game hen and allow you floss after dinner!

Yeah, but what else can you do with those red mini-biners? They certainly don't work as manly zipper pulls, especially on that orange hooded rain shell, Doug. You did the right thing. The mother of all cornish game hen shackles!

I don't know which is funnier, Doug's OP or Franco's response!

Cornish game hen huh?

I'd say that was a dead bird dead bird.











Of course the UL way to truss is even lighter than floss. Pierce a hole through each side of the loose skin on the side of the opening. A slit about half an inch long. Then tuck the left ankle through the right slit and the right ankle through the left slit. Done.

Dale -- nice. Did you consider using tent stakes?
