Slide of the Month Extra - Smellable (Philmont - my gear)

January 2021

Time to make: 1 hour

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design: Bill Macfarlane


Smellable?! By definition it is "That can be detected by smell." and if you are a bear (or even mini-bear) in the back county of Philmont you can always smell something tasty. Which brings me to the one water bottle I'll be carrying to mix my electrolyte fruit drinks in. No matter how many times it is washed, if it every had anything in it besides just water, it is considered a smellable and has to be hosted up with other food items in the bear bag.

Carved from southern (pallet) pine, this is a pretty fair representation of the water bottle I'll carry at Philmont right down to the drink spout top I added. Painted with hobby paints and given a couple of coats of poly to finish it off.
