Went to Walmart today to look at some of the big screen TVs they sell(not adventure gear)
cut thru an aisle with garden hoses...whoa...stop...clearance items.They had the Outdoor products
dry bags at $5--25L...$5--35L.Could not pass that deal up..for $10 +tax.They also had that backpack
for clearance too,don't recall the price.Continued thru the store past the camping equipment/supplies
where they still offered the 15L dry bag but not the larger ones.Interesting to note that the package
states DRY BAG...at the bottom in smaller print weather resistant.At $5 a good buy.

Comparing with my Seattle Sports hydra pack the Outdoor versions do not have the additional 3" of
bag material above the strap/clip.Maybe thats why only water resistant claim?

Anyway passing the info along,cheap $5 dry bags at Walmart,maybe not available at all stores..

I bought some cool stuff there the other day. I meant to take some pics and totally forgot.

Here was my list:
ground cover for my tent (I used to use a plastic shower curtain but this seems a little nicer because it came with holes for making a little pop up shelter as well as a good ground cover)
a few mountain house dried foods
double sided caribeaner (cheap little caribeaners perfect for attaching clothes to a clothes line, mounting my solar panel to my back pack, etc.)
male/female headphone jack (for an extension from my gps to my Cardo)
butane for my butane lighter

Just wanted to check back after my first week long moto-camping trip and say my Wally World camping gear (tent, sleeping bag, mess kit, dry bag, and accessories) performed well and is all ready for another go round.

Best part is if something fails along the way you can always hit another Wally World for cheap replacements and dinner fixings.

Does Target count? Got this stainless steel Stanley cookpot at Target for $15. Comes with 2 plastic mugs that fit inside. The handle snaps into place on top to hold the lid or down as in the picture. Holds 24 ozs.

I picked up a 40L dry bag for $11. I can't believe how much I payed for something so similar from aerostich.

Once a season I buy a new Coleman rain suit. Can't remember how much they are, but it does a good job on the cheap. Generally I just need it to get me home from work in a half-way dry state, and it does ok. If I were out on much longer rides I'd spend the cash on something else.

Maybe for somebody else. After 300 miles, a good portion of the last 100 standing up, I pulled into a WalMart hoping they'd have one of these. They did, and the last 250 miles were a lot more comfortable.

Oh yeah, also grabbed 3 UA knock-off shirts at the same stop.

I snagged two of those a few months ago at Target on clearance for 7 bucks a piece. Use them with my alky stove, as well ;p The entire stove, windscreen, and fuel bottle fits inside - it's a pretty nice self contained mini cook kit, and the pot itself is surprisingly stout.

Yep I bought the same type of tent from them and live in it for 3 months when I didn't want to rent a place in sunny Kelowna BC one summer. Never leaked. Gave it to a friend.

Not sure you quotes what you meant to... which post did you mean to quote, or what tent is that?
