    Cool.

    We pack everything we can into vacuum sealed bags...but I also include a zip-lock bag (unsealed) inside the vac bag before sealing.

    Once the vac bag is opened, it's trash...so how do you keep the remaining stuff dry? Use the ziplock!

    Well that is a very smart idea.

    I've been rolling personal gear including class A's since just after Tet but never thought of combining them. Thank you skorpion

    Even now all my personal items are rolled up in my drawer and wood shed.

    I just started to enjoy doing laundry since retiring last year and can't wait to start doing this....thanks again brother.
