[pct-l] Ursacks and mice

Last year, through all of Or & Wa, I used a combo of a Loksack inside a Zpack "food" stuff sack. Never had any issues. Always ate & slept at the campsite. But fellow companions weren't as fortunate. And, sometimes I saw the critters running around our site. Just lucky??  Maybe. 


Why?  To experience the moment.  I like to hike.

I always had my food, trash and anything with a scent in an OP Sak, stowed inside my pack under my feet at night, and never had any issues with mice. I used OP Saks for my 8-year section hike of the whole PCT, including inside my bear canister for the Sierra, and never had any indication of any creature being interested in my food.
