Went camping last week near Lake Superior and had to hang the camp food in a bear bag (yes we saw bear prints and scat). Luckily I thought to bring my throwline so that made things a little easier, but still the task of pulling the heavy bag up was a problem. I am trying to think of a throw-away friction saver. Any ideas? Thanks.
