Krylon is pretty good.. actually.. but if it's on a softer plastic.. like polypropylene.. it can scratch easy

Stealth cooler..

still going to want to keep them out of the sun.. now with that dark colour the sun will heat em up

I take my BLUE water jug, just toss a tarp over it when not in use .

Cooler.. I have a wood crate large enough to put it in.. so it does double duty.. cooler is out of sight.. and extra insulated ..

I'm looking for a better water solution but water cans are not an easy find, so we make due for now.. hiding.. stealthing

Put some 'ordnance' tan paint, with a white stripe and you're good to go.

This is how the blank guys do it;

White cross is for drinking water specifically. Markings on the site Hansen posted look legit, if you want to go that far.

This is the thing I was talking about, we get people to pitch in for these water cans and the ones with the vehicles bring them out for all of the troops! I for one cannot carry one of these on the bus ;( !!!

I like that idea a lot.. Especially if we pitch in $10 each, that will cover the cost no problem.
Either way, I have one on my list just because.

The good thing with the cans I posted, you can put JB weld or something over the English, sand it smooth and paint it up to look great.

I think we should organize this a little better, last time I brought out 3 ltrs of water I ran out on the last day, and there is no way I could carry more...

Can we not organize how much water to bring as a group?

And really I don't care if we had pink water cans as long as there is water... and yes they would be out of sight for obvious reasons...???

Brian, any comments on the subject?

JJ have you been tasked to bring water?

I'm willing to chip in for a water can of some sort if needed. (preferably not a pink one)
