Carrying a fully loaded bag can sometimes be really annoying as you hike. And if there is no place to drop your bag there is a solution. As i was hiking up the mount Belchen, i  was evolving through a forest filled with ferns. That's one of the best asset in terms of camouflage. I have placed the bag. On the other hand i always have a second bag from 20 to 25 liter so i can go hiking and fit enough water, food and clothes if need be. Right after i returned from the hike! I went back behind the tree where i hid the bag and it was gone! I so couldn't believe that a hiker would steal a bag! So i thought that someone had found it and probably taken it to the rail office. As soon as i climbed up i realized i got the wrong tree! The bag was so well hidden from eyesight that i couldn't remember which one was the right tree. So have a look at the pics before and after camouflage it s quite convincing!

Enjoy your hike with a light back and a peaceful mind
