    how do you measure volume?

    there are many ways to determine the volume of a given bag - some less scientific than others.

    we decided we would measure in cereal boxes!

    the ruck's sac, for example, can hold 3 cereal boxes!

    Organic, organic, and a triple!

    I like this method. Then again, I like cereal.

    yes, rainbow rings! my son loves them - not so much for the sugar but because they are colorful. they don't contain artificial colors and have the healthier sugars, so i don't feel guilty buying them. :)

    I mostly measure volume either in *days* (I realize this is not a unit used for volume in physics class), or *books.* (Basically: "If I visit Powell's (http://www.powells.com), orGreen Apple (http://www.greenapplebooks.com/cgi-b...oid/index.html), will I be able to carry what I bought to the train station / airport?")
