    Someone would take them, drink the water, cash in the bottles.

    Why not carry a water bottle?

    They tend to run too far to carry enough.

    I’ve heard the theory that the asteroid belt is actually construction barrels that aren’t being used.

    This summer our sag driver stashed the cooler in poison ivy.

    This has always puzzled me.
    You’re going for exercise.
    You stash “x” along the way so you don’t have to carry it.(whatever “x” is)
    People, even the army makes you carry your gear in a pack so it’s there when you need it. (One of the few things anyone’s army throughout history has gotten right.)
    So why not carry “x”, shorten the run as necessary, and brag about how much of “x” you carried for how far in what time?

    Wait, what? This isn’t about training to be able to march into battle. It’s about running. On a recreational run, you don’t need to be able to pack a bunch of stuff around.

    Especially in this strip’s home state of Michigan, which has a bottle law.
    When I walked into Busch’s supermarket in Pinckney, there was a recycling center in the vestibule. Machines accept plastic bottles, glass bottles and aluminum cans.
    After you’re done recycling, you hit a “done” button and a receipt spits out, giving you a dime per container, and then you take your receipts to the courtesy counter, which cashes them for you.

    Never been in the military have ya? What do you think all those trucks full of food and equipment are for, entertainment? You carry the minimum amount possible for the planned foray, say 3 days food, shelter, weapon and 200 rounds. If you’re the comm guy, you have a heavy a-ss radio, too. These days you’re also required to wear stupid heavy armor plates. All the other crap goes on the truck; again, you carry as little as possible.

    What about those “hydration backpacks,” with a gallon of water, hose and bite valve so the runner can suck water and still have hands free? Or are those things really only used by those crazy “Iron Butt” motorcycle riders?
