Center of my kb has a milk crate with plates bowls and such. The left side has the stack of a couple DOs with nested pots in. The right side has a large stainless stock pot that holds plates, utensils and stuff.

Seat box dry box gets a few liquor store cardboard boxes to keep the bread and chips from getting crushed. Side boxes get a Zip loc 4 pak cardboard box ( think Costco bulk pak).

Had to laugh at the Tetris reference. I don't think it's too hard but some really struggle with the order of the loading. And the order shall only work one way. And the way is good.

That's it, I don't use the bag though, just the pouches.

Here is a photo of the bags in the drybox. Once the food is in there everything sits pretty tight and is not moving around much in a flip.

I store all of my food in convenient, easily packed, 12 oz. cans. The rest gets thrown into the dry box.

most importantly, to keep the dry box tidy, don't bring crap you don't intend to use. Lots of people bring lots of stuff they don't actually use on a specific trip

No! Really! Damn, for years I've try to pare down and I still come home with stuff I didn't use. Like all of the granola bars that I bring so I don't starve to death...and the extra t-shirts....and....

I create compartments out of cardboard and strapping tape. That way I build it to the trip. Carrying the stove and lantern inside? Create them separate compartments so they slide right back into their little homes, and everything hasn't crashed down and filled those voids. Fruit that you don't want mashed? Make a compartment the width of the oranges and apples (gc trip). Carrying lots of food for a gc trip? Multiple compartments so you empty one at a time and create usable empty space instead of just having the level go down. You can even break them down if you want, or modify them with duct tape.

I enjoy esoteric analysis of order within the chaos of puzzles.

This thread is heaven.

I'm now in favor of interlocking slotted masonite until further rebuttal.
