[at-l] Carrying Olive Oil

Not a direct answer re bottle, but I sealed oil in single-use vacuumed-sealed
pouches -- about one oz each.

Make the small pouches, the same general rectangular shape & a tad larger than
those you get condiments in at fast food places.  Sealing three sides -- the
two long and one narrow sides.

Fill 3/4 full with oil.

Set upright in freezer.

After a while you can vacuum seal the forth side w/o the vacuum-sealer sucking
the oil out.

Never had one leak.  Single use -- so no reseal on the trail.  OTOH, every 
bottle and refillable squeeze tube I ever tried did leak, eventually.

Anyone have any recommendations for little lightweight bottles that could
carry olive oil, maybe four ounces or so, and not leak!
