Hey there Flashmo, I cliked your flyrod link. Just giving you a shout out. I'm in the Fly Fishing biz also. I'm a guide and Master Certified casting instructor here in PA. What are the odds that we have already met at one of Chuck Furimsky's shows? I have never been to any of the FFF conclaves though, but am thinking of attending this year.

In the remote north west of Australia corrugated dirt roads would cause beer cans to rub though against each other. You get lots of empty cans with rip tops in place. A guy once told me he wrapped his cans in newspaper to stop them rubbing together in his Engel fridge in his 4x4. The paper then came in handy to start camp fires as he drank the beer.

Myself, I drink scotch with water. Always carry plenty of water and even a glass scotch bottle is easy to cushion amongst your spare clothes. A Sig type bottle or flask is even better. Definately less bulky to carry spirits. Just watch out when your beer drinking mates run out of beer!
"Man vs Wild"... in Australia we call that "Going down the back yard."

Beer in cans is the go, but you have to find the more durable canned beers. Some are paper thin and rub through fairly easy or the can mouth pull seal fails regularly. Others travel really well. The hard part is finding out which ones work well.
In Oz, VB (a common high volume bitter) are the worst for puncturing. Which is fine because it's a crap beer anyway. The more durable common canned beers I've found are Toohey's New and XXXX Gold. They can cop a fair bit of abuse before having a failure.
The Polar Bear Coolers are brilliant at keeping ice over several hot days and are ideal for bike travel. A piece of foam sleeping mat cut to fit between the cooler and the rack base helps with shock absorption.

This thing works great. I think it's designed for atv use.

That's it under the tent and bed roll. I know it's a little bit Clampet but it works well

Glad to know I'm not the only crazy person out there to consider trying one of those ATV rack bags on a motorcycle. Looks like it works pretty damn good too. I may still do that. I converted my Triumph tailpack to a mini-cooler but am thinking I'd rather have a bag like this. We'll see....
Stay tuned for ride reports ... Idaho to Arizona in May and Idaho to The East Coast in September.

So just the other day I'm driving my cage slowly thru a beautiful mountain road when out of nowhere a bunch of dirt bikes with license tags piloted by Beer crazed asylum inmates blows me off the road into a ditch
ride, brew, sleep, repeat

I've had bottles pop the cork, but never had a can explode. I've shook cans hard as a joke for a friend and never had one explode. I'm guessing something punctured a can.
