Since I'm gonna be spending a lot of time in National Parks here in a few weeks, and have been buying various bits of kit like crazy, my thoughts turned to the ol' requirement to carry an axe, shovel, and bucket, in federally managed wilderness. (i don't know if this is actually law or just best practice)
and while I always have an axe and shovel in the truck anyways, I have never carried a bucket.
So hit me. Do you carry a bucket? What kind? What size? what makes a "good bucket?" What kind of things do you actually DO with your bucket?
